I was privileged to be able to install some of my artwork in a beautiful home, yesterday. I love to see my art hanging and being enjoyed. Who doesn’t, I suppose? LOL!
The following two photos are of prints of a couple of my birds hanging in the kitchen.
I have been assured that the new owners are very happy with them. Yay! That makes me happy, too!
I have been reading, as usual. I have gone through so many recently that I will just give you a list and, if you are interested, you can look them up:
Love, Lucy by Lucille Ball (Autobiography)
The Creative’s Curse by Todd Brison (It’s real. How to deal with it.)
Art & Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland (This is about what it feels like to sit in your studio trying to do the work that you need to do.)
The Divine Artist by Stephen Bennett (So far, I have read this twice. I have the audio and the paperback. We all know who the Divine Artist is… SO GOOD!)
Mornings on Horseback by David McCullough (About 17 years in the early life of Theodore Roosevelt from age 10 until 27. SO GOOD!)
Walking on Water by Madeleine L’Engle (Essays on art and faith.)
Goliath Must Fall by Louie Giglio (Freedom from strongholds.)
The Victory Garden by Rhys Bowen (Novel of England during WWI.)
Meet the Austins by Madeleine L’Engle (Book one of the Austin Family Chronicles.)
The Moon by Night by Madeleine L’Engle (Book two of the Austin Family Chronicles.)
Climbing with Mollie by William Finnegan (A father and his daughter discovering rock climbing and each other.)
All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriott (I am working my way through them all for the gazzillionth time…)
I also have two poetry collections by my chair and I read a few poems every once in a while.
And I am slowly working through The Elements of Landscape Oil Painting by Suzanne Brooker (Such beautiful landscapes!)
I am working on my portrait for the swap. He is also working on my portrait. He is doing an oil painting. I feel a little guilty giving him a pencil drawing when he is doing such a beautiful painting…
Mr. Beloved, Toby, and I took a walk, today. We saw a nifty twisty sycamore tree.
I have set up my bird feeding station so as to capture birds unawares with my trusty camera setup. (I hope…)
And I leave you with this image. The sun was rising over the pine trees and Toby just happened to pose in such a way as to make it look like the aliens were landing to take him away. LOL! He was actually looking for one of the local stray cats.
‘Tis sweet to hear the watch dog’s honest bark
Bay deep-mouthed welcome as we draw near home;
’tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark
Our coming and look brighter when we come.
