* Hello Easel ...

Went up to the studio quite early today.  Thought I would continue organizing and perhaps finish, at least as much as I could.  Sitting at my table.  "Why don't you just come and sit with me?"  I looked up.  Medicine woman was speaking.  "I don't want to.  I'm not ready."  'I know.  You might just sit here with me and look at the tree or the sky."   I didn't reply.

Soon, I found myself getting my paints out, sorting them into the colours I required.  Before I knew it I was seated before her.  OK, I thought.  The tree would be a good place to start.  And so it began.  I spent the better part of the day with brush in hand, playing.  Her roots are in ancient Ireland.  A Celt.  A woman.  A healer.  She has 'wisdom'.  Deep knowings of the mystical kind.  As she told me when I sketched her in the first day.  "Love is the greatest healer."

Had great difficulty getting a good photograph.  Not sure why, however the colour, texture and clarity is the pitts.  :o)

And so, I have begun.


Thanks for dropping in everyone.  xxoo Donna

  7. Gorgeous and her love will speed up your recovery. I like the tree you included because it reflects strength.

    Isn't it ironic when we plan our day and end up doing something entirely different as though we were directed in some way to please the soul.

    Have a good weekend. Tonight is another Boise football game so my evening will be spent in front of the TV.

    Hugs,
    Carolyn
