Life is a Mix


life has extremes
deep black of night and shadow
mixed with soft glow of pink feminine
blue of clear sky and her eyes
walking in this world as well as the celestial divine
path of being woman

fairy slipper season is here


a lovely wild orchid

I have been enjoying lessons from Jane Davenport who is teaching through 21 Secrets.

This painting was created following her latest lesson.
Jane is a wonderful artist, generous and inspiring teacher, she brings the best out of her students!

  58. Years ago someone once said I reminded them of an orchid. I did not like orchids then--I thought I might be more like a rose. But the wild orchid, living in harmony with the woodlands--that appeals to me, now that I'm a little older and wiser.

    Lovely lovely drawing.
