My tiny slice of paradise

I posted a photo of my newly arranged tiny slice of paradise and got a lot of positive feedback. I love that area. When I think about my little home here I see it as relaxing overall, but I’ve carved out one spot dedicated to the things I love. The tea spot over there, too. […]

A day of solitude with the things I love

I didn’t think about much at all. I just did the things I love. It was a much needed day of solitude, a mini mental vacation. She is a shining star, this furry one. She melts my heart when she does the slow blink. Mary Jane is an integral part of the process of slowing […]

What Can Crayola Do?

Fun abstract paintings in Crayola. The name of this piece is called Playground. I have to say I had a blast. I started with one swirl and kept going. I found it relaxing and gentle on my mind. It took about three days before I finally said it’s complete. When I did I began to […]

Traveler

What will you see in this ethnic, surreal painting? Ah, gold poppies, red poppies, a fisherman in traditional clothing reaching to the sun, an Asian woman in a white dress with a small orange patch whose arms reach down yet they branch out as bare trees.
