One of my recent painting palettes (acrylic)
Painting is just another way of
keeping a diary.
Well, my sweet friends ’tis storming here. I assume you heard of the tropical depression named Fay.. hitting Florida. Well she arrived at our door yesterday. Here is a little picture of the river earlier this morning from my porch…she (the St John’s) is over the bulk-head and waves are crashing in the yard. I just looked again and the river is edging closer, but I think the worst is over. We were without power all night, but thankfully it came on mid-morning. So from my porch this morning:

Where are my gentle manatees now? :(
Just when we think “we’re all that” nature reminds us who really has the power..eh? Ah..the adventures / energies of our world..never boring..thank goodness. Anyway, I hope all is good in your worlds!
I have never shown my painting palette before, but I do end up keeping some of them. I find the remaining paints interesting….sometimes more interesting than the paintings themselves. OKay…I am quite sure some of you were already thinking that, weren’t you?? hee, hee I am always saying…
I paint what I struggle to say
So according to Picasso this is part of my diary. Hmmm what does this say about me? :O Well, I see darkness and light..and a few imperfect hearts sprinkled in here and there. Do you see the little red one and a black one on the right. My palettes are never sparse..they are shall we say intense..maybe spirited sounds better. Yes, I think I like that...spirited is my choice! What do you think..how would you describe it? Go ahead tell me I can endure it. eh,eh,eh I dare say, I have never examined a palette so closely, but I do see myself in there…imperfect hearts and all.
Well, I’m sorry to leave you now, but I must for a new palette awaits. I have been busy painting this week, storm and all. I’ll show you what Fay and I have attempted soon. I will try to get around to see everyone soon (electricity permitting). Until then, I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend!
Don’t forget my darlings…each day..each breath is like a new palette! Today my wish for all of you is a wonderful and wild palette life!
Energies of Love, Light, and Peace of Heart to all,
Up date: Well dear hearts this is getting a little serious. please send us good energies I just took this, and high tide is a couple of hours away! That is the back of my house you see. :O The power is going on and off again so I need to publish this.
Final update..10:37 PM…the river has receded. After I left you this afternoon she came within 10 feet of my door and a tornado traveled down the river..which divided into two huge water spouts! Needless to say, it has been a crazy 24 hours in my world here! Alas, no one was injured in our neighborhood and the docks survived so I can’t complain can I? I did not sleep at all last night..as the designated worrier I was on tornado watch! So as my Grandmother says, “I am spent”, and I think I will have no trouble sleeping tonight! Thank you for your concerned comments and emails…I do so love my blogging family! :)
They just said on the news we have more tropical depressions out there…as one of my favorite girl’s Scarlett O’Hara said, “I’ll worry about that tomorrow.” OOPS…I just remembered that was from “Gone With the Wind” Ha! ha!
