pair of flowers.

wild tulip and sun rose; pencil and watercolor on cold-pressed paper

I've abandoned the typical chores today, favoring instead pulling weeds and painting. My mind is full of frustration and questions that can't be answered due to the events in Boston. When everything else is a terrible mess, we can choose to create something beautiful. We're given that much power.


  1. if i ever question art-making (rare these days) i remind myself what a counterpoint beauty is to the ugliness.

    1. yes. it may be the entire point of the thing, if we stop asking ourselves silly questions. xo

  2. I really like those pencil & watercolors.
    Seeing something sweet & delicate like that, can lift your spirits.
    For awhile, anyway.


Please leave some love--remember to be kind!
