These are incredible. In thumbnail they look like photographs. My field supplies are out...:)
What a cool painting. I'd love to see it in real life.
Just been browsing your website. Fascinating. Were you selected for the Creative NZ Artists in Antarctica Programme? What an amazing experience!
As always, a blessing for eyes and mind, Claire. :) (See you Tues!)
Fine work, dear Claire!! My eyes go to the horizontal gold, second row from bottom.
This morning I've been musing on the nature of our seemingly constant rain in Seattle these past few days, how everyone complains, and yet I love that water falls from the sky -- an unasked-for blessing. And then here you are, your blog entry echoing these sentiments half a world away.
gorgeous....I want to take out paints...which is the highest complimentthank you...
Antares Cryptos - wouldn't the group of us have a field day on a field trip? ; )
Andrew - hi, and thanks. re; Antarctica - I was privileged to go down there for two summer research seasons, three years apart (2005 and 2008) - not through Creative NZ, but with a team of US polar biologists and research divers. The experience changed my life in minute and dramatic ways. I am almost daily thankful that Antarctica has somehow become an ongoing part of my life's script.I hope things are steadying for you and yours, Andrew - take care. Claire
Hi Kay - the photo essay of some of our world's sacred waters is wonderful, isn't it? 'Tis good to be reminded of the beauty and wonder that's around us. Looking forward to tomorrow's workshop, too. We will need get the fire cranking, I think! xo
Water falling from the skyan unasked blessing. . . Thanks for this image, T.Our worlds are never that far apart ; )
Dear Melissa I love the idea of you wanting to take out your paints. . . I've been wanting to tell you that I've been spending time on your website, looking/watching/listening. Your portrait of Joyce Watson 'How to Fight' is an extraordinarily compelling and honouring piece of work. It has love written all over it. Thank you - L, C
Jane - hello! Lovely to see you again. My blog-roll tells me you have posted new something, too. . . I'm off to find out how you are, where you've been, what has moved you. . . L, C
The link is an extraordinary expansion/extension of your painting, or vice versa. I feel I've been called to a still corner for a significant blessing...I feel one ought to leave an offering in exchange. How fortunate, I have a pebble in my pocket. Very moving and experiential. Love, M. ((O))
A C - one day? Why not. . . ? 'From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere.' Dr. Seuss
Dear Marylinn Your presence here is always a blessing. Thank you for your pebble. In acknowledgment of you, my two hands pressed together - '/\'
