this morning during coffee the clouds became waterfalls
their tops spilling over their huge, fluffy sides in ginormous billows of hellos!
I was absolutely stunned…
God! Why is there no one here with me to witness this? I asked outloud
isn’t that always the way?!!
as if on cue one of the tiny tree frogs that have decided my deck is a groovy place to live started croaking loudly
a breeze raced onto my deck laughing
the leaves and flowers I am blessed to live with danced a slow tango
the cottony falls kept flowing down down down
all the way into my coffee
and sooo very deep down into my smiling heart!

Happy Super, Flower, Blood/Full Moon Eclipse Beautiful People of the world!!! I’ve got my alarm set for late tonight so I can actually go outside and see the eclipse! Very excited!!!
The whole time I’ve been sitting here drawing this, Cole Porter’s ‘It’s De-Lovely’ has been running circles through my brain. That’s not a bad thing!!! 😅 Speaking of Lovely, below is a youtube video (music only…sigh!) of the beautiful Ella Fitzgerald singing the song for anyone interested! I wish You and Yours SO Much LOVE and Every Single Incredible Anything Your heart/soul desires!!!
I refuse to waste paint so anytime I’ve squeezed too much onto my palette and have leftover, I paint nonsense on an empty board or two that I have laying around. They’re there for that purpose and always ultimately become paintings themselves. This is one of those. It went through a horribly ugly stage for a quite while (all my paintings do! 🤣) and then, recently, BAMMO! This beautiful scene emerged! Yay!!!
As this painting finally was taking form and winding down, Little River Band’s song ‘Reminiscing’ would take my mind hostage every time I sat down to work on it.
My beautiful man and I went to see them in concert a few years ago and they were WONDERFUL! We danced and sang and had a blast! I shall now plant this song in Your brain! 😅 Enjoy!
