SOLITUDE

SOLITUDE (8×8/oil on canvas) None of us wants to be alone all the time. We need connection. There is no connection without vulnerability. I am learning some of this for the first time. When I was small, I spent a great deal of time alone. My life as a child was not necessarily happy. But, it was rich. Because […]

AMAZED BY THIS GRACE

AMAZED BY THIS GRACE (8×8/oil on canvas) Give me a gift. Do this with me. Lets drive to the ocean. We can find a little place to stay. If it’s far enough south we can even find some warmth. I long to hear the waves, crashing against the rocks. I long for the stillness this […]

UNAFRAID

UNAFRAID (8×8/oil on canvas) Fear is negative. It is the same as faith, only it’s faith in a lie. We create with our thinking. We paint the images in our thought life. Most of us don’t realize the power of creativity we have living in us. It’s a good idea to thoughtfully build our hopes […]

THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD

THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD… (8×8/oil on canvas) Love will never get old. It is as if I woke up one day andcrossed over into a new land. Now I am aware of how love feels when I walk in it. I know a little of what “living in love” is like. What’s more, […]

She Left Her Red Scarf

She Left Her Red Scarf  – (8×8 oil on canvas) As the bus rolls along the highway down from Skye, I photograph the houses that speak to me.  I like to imagine the stories in each one.  When I saw the red scarf draped over the fence, I knew she had left it there. She […]

Use your imagination! God smiles…..

USE YOUR IMAGINATION (8×8/oil on canvas) Use your imagination!  God smiles….. Flowers are a lovely gift.  I appreciate them more and more.  I love cutting them from the bushes in my yard, putting them in vases, finding their place in my home.  I love the whole ritual. They give me joy every time I look at […]

STILL TELLING THE STORY

TELLING THE STORY (8×8/oil on canvas) Still telling the story… Our stories are all around us.  Most of us don’t realize we are telling a story as we live our lives.  They are written in how we treat each other, our children, our neighbors, and ourselves.  The “greatest story ever told” is told most of the time in that […]

THE RED SCARF

THE RED SCARF (8×8/oil on canvas) She placed her red scarf on a hook on her upstairs window.  Red had been her favorite color for a long time.  It gave her energy.  It emboldened her.  Hanging it on her window was a laying down of her own power in exchange for a greater.  She knew now, He can be trusted.  She wants […]

REMINDING US

REMINDING US… (8×8/oil on canvas) Sunflowers are my favorite.  They make me think of Van Gogh in the field, painting madly.  I don’t know what actually happened to make him end his life, but I do love his work and his story.  A conversation with him would be more than amazing.  Maybe some day, but until then, I […]

AN ANCIENT SONG

AN ANCIENT SONG (8×8/oil on canvas)   This morning, while wandering around the little town of Portree, I found a lovely (wee) path, which led into a stone, fenced churchyard.  The yard itself was overgrown and run down. There was one enormous tree in the center of that quiet space which sang a melancholy, ancient song […]
