I found this painting at the thrift store last week... I didn't buy it right away... The volunteer workers recognized that it was worth a bit more than their usual fare... ...and so I hesitated. But he is compelling... Happily, I came to my senses and went back for him.
Another something I couldn't resist at the market today...
All is calm.
All is bright.
Today was a mixed bag of weather conditions... ...some rain...some sunshine.
I was able to work on another collage this afternoon.... ...I am enjoying this time to create and experiment with art immensely. I know how lucky I am. :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
