Hello all….I can’t believe how long it has been since I posted something on here. A lot going on now and it is only going to get busier. I will be leaving for Italy soon and I will be gone for ten days.
I have been painting and hope to post a few things on here soon for you to see. I have been working on my little old man shaving on the curb, that still life from a few weeks ago, a self portrait, and the beginning of a fall scene (expressionistic), etc. So I have been able to paint a little.
At the island for a few days…working on some projects. I wanted to share this with you. My husband and I stepped outside into the darkness…and I do mean darkness..you could barely see your hand in front of your face. That darkness revealed a sight beyond description to us…the night sky. Talk about “falling into the sky”….it felt as though we were standing at the edge of the earth like this pastel piece which I posted before:
Anyway, we were standing there discussing how amazing the sight was when a shooting star went across the sky to the right of the old house we are renovating. Before we finished sharing our delight at that sight another one shot across the sky to the left of the old house. Now those of you that know me and those of you just getting to know me will not be surprised to hear me say…I took this to be signs…confirmations. Of course, I now want to paint that image…the dark sky filled with stars, the silhouette of the old house with her crooked chimney, and those shooting stars. I have already painted it in my mind….now if my paint brush and I can just transform the image to canvas.
posting this and will add more
