Upon the floor.

A heart you say?

Okay lets play.

Morning Hearts

The bright greens and yellows of Nature’s hearts give off an intensity of wakefulness. And although¬†my heart art¬†have little color, the lighter tones¬†in the others give me a sense of calm. All in all the morning was filled with dynamism and stillness, the perfect morning blend. ^_^

What’s Simple is True

While peeling an orange the other day I had the sudden insight to create this. Looking around for the right setting to place it I looked to my left and there it was. I know “weeds” are not liked by many, so I sent them a little love.

 

 

Fallen Blooms Still Glow

DSCF0583

 

The long winter has finally allowed spring to come forth and as much as I enjoyed the snow, I am overjoyed to see the flowers in bloom!

 

This past week I’ve been keeping an eye on my Mother’s Azaleas as they went from buds to flowers and this morning¬†¬†I woke to find an overnight’s frost¬†caused¬†the¬†flowers to drop¬†off the branches.¬†I was¬†saddened by the length of time I had left with them so¬†I decided to create something new with¬†the soft¬†magenta¬†pedals.

In my pajamas and holey crocs,¬†I walked outside through the icy lawn and had to I remind myself of a quote from Andy Goldsworthy, “good art keeps you warm”. The¬† yellow glow of the morning sunrise stretched across the lawn pointing me to my destination,¬† a spot on the hill. The lush grass¬†was a perfect contrast to the¬†dusty pink flowers. And by the time that I was done, Andy Goldsworthy’s quote proved to be true. Here’s hoping for more warm weather!
