Bird Tales

She listened
as the wee bird told stories from the forest

stories of the fawn that pranced through
and where the mushrooms grew

the bird told about the squirrel that stole the swallows eggs
about the snail eggs that were growing along the waters edge

It sang from dawn to dusk
about the life its lived and things its seen

I have been drawing birds on hands for years
I wonder if doing so is what inspired this
interaction to actually happen?!

It is a sweet sharing, makes my heart sing.

I take it quite seriously, like caring for a pet.
I do not walk out the door without a pouch of seed on me.
It is not a good feeling when the little feathered friends land on a branch next to me
making their teeny sound which mean:
seed please
Then patiently waits for me to pull seed out of the pouch and it then descends to my finger tips

wishing you magic in your days and in your dreams

Lovely Summer Solstice to You!

Tis the season
of mushrooms and flowers

Rain is falling which inspires mushrooms to grow.
A cool beginning to summer. 

Lovely Solstice to you and yours!

Last night on facebook there was a live class for these two paintings. 
It was fun and you might enjoy taking it too. 
It won't be live, but you can watch the video on her page.

It is through Sacramento Art Classes

she had us working on two paintings at once
so that one could dry as we worked on the other one

Lovely weekend to you!

Sketchbook Art

Sometimes I pick up an old sketchbook 
finding pencil sketches begun,  
and I breathe new life into them
then paint

there is something satisfying about finishing pieces

Wishing you a lovely spring day

Magic of Life

as he leaned against the tree
as though it was part of his body

toes outstretched 
supported by earths boulder

he reached 
for the spheres 

the colorful spheres of energy

knowing they were gifts to behold
partake in

the magic of life

Something has her attention

something has her attention
maybe a wild orchid?:

 So lovely to have flowers blooming!
This is a calypso orchid
commonly called a fairy slipper

quite similar to a lady slipper but about half the size 
and different coloring.

Dragon Kin

oh to fly
through the skies
by the wings of a friend


I have been doing my 100 day challenge. 
At least my allotted ten minutes a day
which can lead to an hour or three

Since I usually do not think a piece through in advance
this one was a bit of a challenge to breathe 
life into. 
Lots of staring at it, waiting for the next step to come to me.
