I posted this painting a couple weeks ago, but later I discovered that my muse just insisted on creating a little poem to go along with it. So here’s the poem and, of course, it’s only right that I show you the picture again, since it was the inspiration. LEMONADE STAND When life gives youContinue reading “Lemonade Stand”
I’ve been experimenting with Watercolor Splotches. The idea is that you put puddles of watercolor on the paper and blow on it through a straw. What happens next gives you the theme of your picture. When I saw that these splotches dried holding hands, I knew it was love.
I have a little coffee poem for you today. Enjoy: LIFE’S NECESSITIES Of life’s necessities I’ve made a list. Coffee’s there, and at the top it sits. Some think I would give chocolate highest place; To their surprise that’s simply not the case.

But, then, lo and behold, when I told my sister about this video, I discoveredContinue reading “Laughter Is Good Medicine — Day 7”
Rarely have I laughed so hard as when I’ve listened to Jeanne Robertson. And knowing that all of her stories are true makes them even more funny. After all, life really is funny a lot of the time, and as long as we are willing to ‘let our hair down’ enough to laugh outContinue reading “Laughter Is Good Medicine — Day 6”
A VESSEL OF STERLING While browsing antique shops, I made a great find! Unearthed a rare treasure. Never saw one in kind. An elegant bowl, with a handle and lid; Beneath so much tarnish, it’s true beauty hid. Though black with the ages, I hugged it to me; I paid the man gladlyContinue reading “Laughter Is Good Medicine — Day 5”
