Lil’ Gymnast Critters

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always dreamed of being a red rabbit superhero. Powerful enough to hop over water  in a single bound. Then to balance on a sea-pod while spotting a young fish on her first big jump who is balancing on seaweed. And look at the rest of the critters, simply enjoying the fun of watching their comrade learning her first tricks. It’s a great day when it’s the other gal!

 

Sometimes a Great Box

This weekend I moved into a lovely home with an art studio that I could easily eat, sleep, work in—it’s that inspiring! My feet have no feeling. They passed the stinging phase yesterday. My hands are hot pink and swollen and don’t really work anymore. When hands don’t work anymore, they make super unpredictable art. I think she’s half human and half work-mule. Boxes galore and look at that sweet house with the ‘kind of’ blue door.

Ice cream tastes super good right now.

Happy monday!

 

To Live in This World…

The words in this painting are from an excerpt of a poem by Mary Oliver that I love:

In Blackwater Woods
“…To live in this world
you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go.”
~ Mary Oliver

 

Doh!

We’ve all been there… At least I have.

Terribly sorry for some wrong doing. Intricately in touch with my inner dog. Just wanna crawl into my doghouse until the pain dissolves. But I’m such a bad dog, I don’t even have a doghouse! Ah, shucks, even this dog seems to have an inner dog. He gets it!
