Water Lilies II @Morri
36″ x 36″ acrylic wrapped/canvas (click on image to enlarge)
The slender water-lily
Peeps dreamingly out of the lake;
The moon, oppress’d with love’s sorrow,
Looks tenderly down for her sake.
Hello all how are things in your worlds? I hope those of you in the US had a nice holiday weekend! I will try to make this another brief post.
First, I wanted to tell you the “Visiting Souls” reached a 100,00+ before the full moon! So as promised a name was selected and Bo Mackison will be receiving a giclee’ print from me. Bo is a wonderful photographer and writer. Her blog is seededearth and she is on facebook. After contacting Bo by email..I am very happy that it is to go to her. I feel it was meant to be her name, and the reasons go far beyond my little drawing. Life and all the connections are so interesting and wonderful when you stop and really think about it. We will be discussing which print as I plan to give her some choices..so I will let you know what she decides.
Let’s see what else is going on..well, I have been painting a lot for the upcoming solo shows and for some show submissions. I also finished a commissioned piece for a new business. I’ll tell you about that in my next post. Other than painting and gardening I’ve been working on the 1880 house. Needless to say, enjoying the beginning of summer here..to name a few things..magnolias, gardenia, zinnias, roses, morning glories, moonflowers, etc! Of course summer fruits and vegetables are appearing on my table. I even have a confession to make..I bought my first watermelon for this season on Friday. I only have a tiny bit left and I ate every bite save one small bowl I shared! It was not a huge watermelon nor was it a small one either. ha, ha
Well, I best tell you about the Water Lilies II painting and send this out into the internet world! First, I must say I found this quote so beautiful..words expressing what I attempted to paint. This is another piece that was in the spring show. I live in a world surrounded by water so water lilies are a familiar sight for me. I said before that I find the messiness of them endearing..a good metaphor for my life.
I have been chatting with some of you via email and on facebook. I even managed to visit a couple of blogs. I may try to make it a goal to visit one or two in the evening..just a quick peek into your lives and a hello if nothing else. I wish I did not require sleep or had five or six clones of me ..so “we” could do all we need and wish to do. I would even step aside letting one of “them” be the team leader! Don’t think that I have forgotten you..I still see your words in my mind…some of us were blogging friends for quite a spell and are still in touch here and on facebook. I still plan to do youtube I’ve had my morritime station for a few months now..I just need to do it ..maybe this weekend. Like I said before..I think I can run my mouth better than type. ha!
Well I leave you now, for a spell. I hope you are living like Heinrich’s water-lily description..
I hope you live dreamingly,
~Morri aka gypsy-he♥rt
