A Prayer and Art

Lord support us all the day long of this troublous life, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes and the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over and our work is done.

Then, of Thy great mercy grant us safe lodging, and holy rest, and peace at the last, through Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Art Spirit

These are the moments in our lives, there are moments in the day,when we seem to see beyond the usual. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom. It was in this hope that the arts were invented. – Henri

Spring: Walk Softly

Walk softly on a woodland path, put each foot down with care,

for those who own this bit of world are around us everywhere.

Walk gently on a woodland path,for trespassers are we.

On land that owned by furry ones-bird butterfly and bee.

Art: A Natural Outcome

We will be happy if we can get around to the idea that art is not an outside and extra thing,that it is a natural outcome of a state of being; that the state of being is an important thing.. – Henri

Nature notes and art.

The close observer of nature notes her signs with keen awareness. He watches the sky and landscape detecting changes almost before they occur. If there is a phenomenon he is first to behold it for his senses are tuned to the sights and sounds of the universe.

A Time Between -Winter Scene

A time between and yet so dear, bright hopes of fall just past..While looking forward to the spring amidst the winter blast, for February is a span; it tells of things to be, a bridge connecting fall and spring we travel happily. – GA Schultz

Transition- February and Orchard Pears

A little while and then I will reclaim

Familiar places,edges with beads of gold,

And sight an orchard in a pool of flame.

Forgetful of the stinging sleet and cold.

And soon the birds will fill our hearts with song,

Pouring their cheer all day long.
