“An artist has to be careful never to really arrive at a place where he thinks he’s at somewhere. You always have to realize that you’re constantly in a state of becoming, and as long as you’re in that realm, you’ll sort of be all right.”-Bob Dylan (from No Direction Home)

Except for the hours and hours when I’ve been deep in a basement studio with my hands covered in clay or singing my voice out in a cold sanctuary rehearsing for Lessons and Carols and Christmas services I’ve focused on clouds. And, they keep changing!-“It’s clouds illusions i recall…” Where has the fall gone? How can it be less than 3 weeks until Christmas and i don’t even have a wreath on the door let alone a decent watercolor to share.

Well i guess we all just do the best we can and share what we can. No matter how they may appear to us they are what we’ve got today and it is good to have tried. After all if we think we have arrived we probably aren’t in a good place at all!  The best place to be is in a state of becoming.

  1. Beauty in words & paints — keep on, you are doing fabulously. Can you imagine for just one second how all of the previous painters felt alone in their basements with no internet to connect? Wow! That was perseverance! Do not stop, just keep painting my dear -)))

  3. No decorations up here yet either, and I think you have lots of decent paintings to share. Clouds are so carefree and dreamy. We all must strive to continue evolving! 💐
