Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice:

for 6 months the light of each day grew longer
inspiring the growth of all
 in her land
flowers, trees, fungi, animals and insects

as we
enter the season of summer
fresh food will be plenty
new flowers will grow
nature thrives
days begin to shorten

in her land 
it is a time to be outside
sharing with loved ones 
finding awe in the glory of the world

Lovely Solstice to you

TIny Bear

Little bear and giant bolete are best of friends
Their guardian fairy hovers in magical form
A trinity of goodness

this was inspired by a photo my friends 
trail camera captured of a grizzly bear recently:


sharing with PPF!
visit to enjoy other artists

AC: birds

spring is such a wonderful time to watch birds

to see them collecting grass
to make nests

enchanted by their songs and calls

we get to wonder about their new born
hey, that is not a bird ;-)

I made a little book for spring birds
their eggs
new life

Thank you Eric for hosting our AC
with the theme:

Sharing Cherries

sharing cherries


this paper is fine for sketching
but when a sketch begs to be painted
well the paper is just not satisfying

It buckled and does not let one play with the paints 
to my satisfaction

thought I had learned that lesson
