February Images

One of my indoor plants making a comeback....


Small detail from a weekend canvas...warm colors abound...


Detail of another painting: An angel to rescue and comfort.....




"If you hear a voice within you saying, 'You are not a painter,' then by all means paint...and that voice will be silenced."

Beautiful work and photos!

I love that Van Gogh quote.

In fact, a painting instructor told me nearly that same thing. I stopped painting for 15 years (I did fiber art and sculpture but no paint) - then during a period of rebellion I said "I will do this."

And I don't hear that voice any more...

love seeing pieces of the goings on in your life...

pray all is well

and that quote is good to silence "my" inner voice in times of discouragement.

grace and peace

Hi, Ladies! Yes, that quote is powerful in helping us act in spite of the IC yapping at us. Put in the time for your passion and you grow. You can't help but grow!:-) If you create on a regular basis, you grow by leaps and bounds.
So, Beloved Readers, pick up that paintbrush, pen, musical instrument, sewing needle, cloth, hunk of clay, musical score, and JUMP INTO your PASSION.
Love & Laughter,
DJ

thanks DJ, i was having one of those days...one that i was not feeling very confident in my artistic abilities...

your comments helped very much.

molly is doing quite well, we should know by the end of the week for sure if it is cancer, hoping for the best of course. she does not even seem to miss her tail, though i know she was in tremendous pain before, so even with the surgery i am thinking it is less so. and when her fur grows back i think she will look like a small bear... :)

how are you doing?

Love your small detail painted parts you are teasing us with DJ. Also really like that Vincent van Gogh quote. Needed to hear that one today!

I have missed you and was so happy to find your sweet comment on my blog post the other day. Thank you! I've been a slow blogger as of late. Hoping to get a post up in the next few days so be sure and stop back to see me again.

Hugs to you,
Lee Ann

Beautiful work! And it's so nice to see plants springing back to life. I love the hope that spring brings.

The photo is beautiful - ethereal. And the details - love the strokes! (Wish I could do that). I need to see the whole thing!

Glad to hear you are feeling better! Looks like you are having fun with your new camera. Enjoy seeing your snippets of paintings which have such wonderful texture and mood.
