Virginia Woolf describes exactly how I am feeling today and most days really, I thought I would share:
“Beauty, the world seemed to say. And as if to prove it (scientifically) wherever he looked at the houses, at the railings, at the antelopes stretching over the palings, beauty sprang instantly. To watch a leaf quivering in the rush of air was an exquisite joy. Up in the sky swallows swooping, swerving, flinging themselves in and out, round and round, yet always with perfect control as if elastics held them; and the flies rising and falling; and the sun spotting now this leaf, now that, in mockery, dazzling it with soft gold in pure good temper; and now again some chime (it might be a motor horn) tinkling divinely on the grass stalks—all of this, calm and reasonable as it was, made out of ordinary things as it was, was the truth now; beauty, that was the truth now. Beauty was everywhere.”

Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a giant tree, in the midst of them all. -BuddhaI am trying to be like a tree, I got news a couple weeks ago that has me very sad. I have only been in love twice, and the first was B, he is 12 years younger than me and we tried once it did not work, 10 years later we tried again and it still did not work, but through it all I have always loved him. While I am no longer in love with him, I still love him and want the best for him. He has stage 3 cancer and will be having surgery Wednesday to have his colon removed. He is very angry and scared and who can blame him.
I am asking all who read this to say a prayer for him, think good thoughts, light a candle, whatever it is that you do, especially keep him in your prayers Wednesday.
*UPDATE: B had surgery and all went well. Now only time will tell.

This is a new painting I started before I got sick and finished this week. Very different for me. It could be a transition piece or a new series, not sure as I am now onto something different using maps and ledgers.
My trouble or strength depending on who you ask is that I am always trying new things and mediums and so my work does not have one look or style.
The first two photos are detail shots and the 3rd photo is a full on shot of the piece, the last photo is a side view. Titled "Winter" 24"x 12", many layers of venetian plaster, graphite and oil, final piece is covered in cold wax.
I always love to hear your thoughts. xoxo
