Fields of Lavender

Fields of lavender
Swaying with the gentle breeze
Aroma so sweet

Walls of Spring

This is the fence behind A lot 'o' Flowers in Fairhaven.
This is also a wall of blossoms that usher in their yearly entrance into Spring!!
I am disappointed they had to move their business. I really loved the spot they were in.
I especially loved the back gardens, the hidden gardens.

Hope for Spring

Each bud a prayer
Each time a blossom answers
And we humbly sigh.....

More Treasures

Sacred room of Stuff
Which will soon turn to treasures
Of a little girl

Well here we are again. You are looking in to the inner sanctum
of a mind in conflict. I collect art supplies to use just in case and create stuff 
until I can't find a wall to hang it on and still love the feel of a studio crammed with
memorabilia. I just can't help bringing home some colorful object I know will just really
enjoy hanging out near my french mask or my taboret with all my paint brushes
and color pencils. If I were a colorful object that is exactly where I would 
want to be. Soon I will be in the process of purging this sacred spot in
my world to make room for an even more sacred spot. I will start
creating a special space for my great granddaughter Leeah 
to call her "own room". Pink and purple I imagine,
with lots of stuffed animals and pretty pillows 
to lay on. There will be a shelf with cubbies 
to put her treasures and hooks to hang her 
coats and "Pack Backs".

Jade picking up seashells

Sea shells on the beach
Mussels, clams and sand dollars
Which one will I choose

This is a drawing of my granddaughter Jade Marie one day at the beach.

Walls in Eureka

These are two walls I shot while walking through Eureka, CA.
The top one is of a local forested area. The artwork was beautiful to walk by. It
gives me a good feeling when I see art everywhere. It means others are
feeling it too. It's a good thing!!

This is a giant octopus wrapping its tentacles around the boat
of some very scared fishermen on the Eureka waterfront.
