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!!!

Just after I titled this, one my absolutely favorite Prince songs popped into my head. The word “lunchbox” brought it up…and man…it seems to SO go with this painting!!!

Starfish and Coffee

the one and only BEAUTFUL, MOST BRILLIANT Prince

It was 7:45 we were all in line

To greet the teacher Miss Kathleen

First was Kevin, then came Lucy, third in line was me

All of us were ordinary compared to Cynthia Rose

She always stood at the back of the line

A smile beneath her nose

Her favorite number was 20, and every single day

If U asked her what she had 4 breakfast

This is what she’d say

Starfish and coffee

Maple syrup and jam

Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine

And a side order of ham

If U set your mind free, baby

Maybe you’d understand

Starfish and coffee

Maple syrup and jam

Cynthia wore the prettiest dress

With different coloured socks

Sometimes I wondered if the mates were in her lunchbox

Me and Lucy opened it when Cynthia wasn’t around

Lucy cried, I almost died, u know what we found?

Starfish and Coffee

Maple syrup and jam

Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine

And a side order of ham

If U set your mind free, baby

Maybe you’d understand

Starfish and coffee

Maple syrup and jam

Cynthia had a happy face, just like the one she’d draw

On every wall, in every school

But it’s alright, it’s 4 a worthy cause

Go on, Cynthia, keep singin’

Starfish and coffee

Maple syrup and jam

Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine

And a side order of ham

If U set your mind free, baby

Maybe you’d understand

Starfish and coffee

Maple Syrup and jam

(starfish in your coffee, you will love it, told ya so)

(starfish in your coffee, you will love it, told ya so)

There’s a great video on youtube of Prince singing this on the muppet show! I’d never seed it before. He’s just beyond wonderful. I tried to post the vid here but they won’t allow any of them to be shared….so here’s the link if You want a huge smile! Cheers, All!

Blissbait Art | St. Simons Artist Katy Boyer/'homeward bound'Happy Saturday, Beautiful People!

Those of You who have been my friends for a while may vaguely remember this painting. I used to call it ‘coming to win us’ (a tribute to Cat Steven’s song ‘Longer Boats’. It was MUCH simpler/different back then! Walking by it one day I noticed it had gotten scratched and some of the paint had come off. I’d forgotten to seal it properly. In fixing it  I started to play and play and play. That was about 5 months ago of revisiting it now and again when the mood struck. This has been a fun journey! It’s finished/sealed and being set free now!
