Honey Bee

last night I took an art night class
there were maybe 15 of us
sip and paint

It was lovely having the guidance of Jenna
each painting looked different
even though she guided us to paint a bee
add honeycomb
then flowers
each painting, all unique

i love that
each personality shines through

Summer Fruits

summer, her favored season 
she loves gathering flowers to cheer her home
fruit for meals, holy cuisine

earth is green, mountains stand strong
listening to the heat of summer 
inspiring growth in all life

She Met a Fairy

she stood quite still
hoping the fairy would come near
and whisper in her ear


The fairy said: 
when you blow out that candle let it's light pour into your heart.

So pleased with herself
walking across the river on a log

as the years pass by
she tries more and more new things

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!
