i’m here in my little room inside the tiny box of things i sometimes believe i know

painting you

you are there in your world inside the box of things sometimes you believe you know

painting me

there are glorious times when i remember this

and can’t stop laughing at the silliness of it all

other times….tears

pour in/out all the colours and let them dance among themselves

regardless of the canvas we are brilliant, pure, perfectly made light

Happy Saturday Beautiful People!!!

I finished reading a book called ‘The Snow Child’, by Eowyn Ivey, a few days ago and it absolutely haunts me in the sweetest of ways. When I sat down to draw today’s post….this just came out. It’s a BRILLIANT book that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and truly one of the most beautiful stories I’ve ever read. So if You’re looking for something to read….I’m just sayin’!!!

I hope You All have a wonderful weekend! Cheers!!!

july came running in laughing wildly

the desert spilling out of her hair

she joyfully blows mysteriously adventurous sandy kisses all through the magnolias, marshgrass, spanish moss and me

funny and crazy brilliant as i’ve always dreamt

of caravaning through the sahara

and here, right in my own backyard

the sahara’s caravaning through me

For those of You who may not be familiar with brilliant Mark Twain’s ‘The Adventure’s of Tom Sawyer’; there’s a wonderful scene in the book where Tom gets in trouble for playing hooky from school. As a punishment his Aunt Polly makes him whitewash the fence. He hates the chore and decides to convince his friends that it’s a great honour and privilege to be given such a responsibility. He ends up charging them money to paint the fence for him! It’s pretty funny!

When my beautiful man brought me this fantastic piece of wood to paint….that story came to mind straightaway. This is what I imagine might have happened had Tom’s friends figured out his con and spotted him off fishing as they worked. I truly don’t remember what he did while they did his chore-apart from collecting the money and feeling pretty amazing about the whole thing; but I sent him off fishing. “Becky” is Becky Thatcher, a young beauty who captured Tom’s heart the moment he saw her and was his first kiss.
