old pierre can spin some yarns

they’re crazy tall but true!

don’t assume he’s lyin’ just ‘cuz it’s never happened to you….

open your mind, lend him your heart

hop in, enjoy the ride…

he’ll be done and your life will have changed

by the rising of next tide!

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!

my art supplies are self-quarantining

they must have seen the news

bunched up in the corner wearing masks

they’re all singing the blues

i’ve tried to convince them to come out and play

saturdays I like to post

but they just cower….they won’t come out!

i guess this week’s is toast!

spamming

Blissbait Art 'spamming'

Hey Beautiful People! This weekend I was bopping around the innards of my blog trying to figure out some techno stuff and noticed my spam folder could use emptying. Much to my surprise the only things it contained were very sweet comments from a dear blogging friend and a wonderful message from a lovely, close family friend! Ack! I think perhaps the spamming mechanism may be a bit wonky with all that’s going on in the world and is hoarding. 🤣 At any rate: Check Your Spam! There may be wonderful surprises in there for You! And my apologies to sweet Gabriela at Short Prose and lovely Cindy Q for my oblivion! Shocking, I know! 😅 Hugs to All and stay safe!

it’s “i’ll read you a story!” time 😄

Happy Saturday, Beautiful People All! I posted this a few years ago but thought it might be a fun distraction about now. Below You’ll find a little film of me reading (with text and illustrations) my very short, seriously silly story ‘Ode to Pipper Popper’.

“Not a fable. No moral here. Simply a bystander’s tale of a very old, outwardly odd and exceedingly cranky so and so who winds up on a journey he never bargained for!”

our prayers

wave by/© Blissbait Art

our prayers by blissbait art

whoever we are, wherever we are, whatever our life may hold:

they are in our every breath, our shoes, wrapped tight in our pillows

draped all about our dinner plates, in the whispers of the trees

and the wonderfully incessant hum of the crickets

in the mad frenzy of a firefly “I’m brightest!” competition

a traffic jam and the graceful rising of the moon

they run wildly out of our faucets dancing through the flow like children aching to play

and are woven into every moment we sit silent

no matter what we’re hearing they wrap themselves around every word

we cry, we laugh, we ignore, we ponder, we pray, we ache, we forget, we help, we play, we worry, we allow ourselves to stop and just Be….

they are the ground that supports us while our story unfolds

our every single moment, action, experience

are permeated with and wrapped a million-fold in most loving prayers from

our beautiful world-family

and ever-present Absolute

LOVE

itself
