life is full!
the art i have created daily can be seen on
instagram. this a collaged and painted teabag.
an acrylic abstract painted on a page of a large book.
rust dyed papers done in a
weekend workshop with orly avineri.
atcs for my international group.
the them was to use a minimal number
of papers within less than 10 minutes.
i started with papers which were painted already.
and i hosted a birthday party for a
dear dear friend. i broke my own boundary by singing
'you're the tops.'... and i cannot sing!
this week i tried using extra large images.
what do you think? too big?
it rained in southern california! yay! it has been a
very long time since i head the sound of water on my rooftop.
it was like music to my ears.
last night the rain spoke to me
by mary oliver
spoke to me
to come falling
out of the brisk cloud,
to be happy again
in a new way
on the earth!
that's what it said
as it dropped,
smelling of iron,
like a dream of the ocean
into the branches
and the grass below.
then it was over.
the sky cleared.
i was standing
under a tree
the tree was a tree
with happy leaves,
and i was myself,
and there were stars in the sky
that were also themselves
at the moment
at which moment
my right hand
was holding my left hand
which was holding the tree
which was filled with stars
and the soft rain-
the long and wondrous journeys
still to be ours.
