Every artist dips his brush in
his own soul, and paints his
own nature into his pictures.
For weeks I have been following Dawn's
Make and Listen posts and am so happy
to finally join along.
Did you realize that Christmas is just over
four months away? I know, it won't be
long and even now I feel like I am already
behind. I was asked to paint a few 'flamingo'
eggs for my son's girl friend to give as
gifts so I have been spending some
time in my studio getting started. My
paints had been gathering a little dust
so it does feel nice to mix colors and
dip brushes into paints. I have so many
ideas I want to paint, now to just make
the time and not put it off.
While I paint I have been listening
to Kate Morton's The Secret Keeper.
I usually only listen to books when
I run or am working in the garden,
but I have been so drawn into this
story that I have been listening while
indoors. The narrator has the most
lovely English accent and I really do
feel like I am transported back to the
1940's. When not listening to my
book, I have been just listening to
'silence', it's nice.
