Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent
if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke

How did it happen that their lips came together?
How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts,
that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind
the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill?
A kiss, and all was said.
Victor Hugo


I managed to get two pieces completed today. I am “out of the studio” tomorrow and I won’t have time to paint. On this, I used my fingers to paint, and my paint brush to doodle. The birds were there, the bodies and tails, I didn’t have to add much. Paint drips became trees. Loose and unstructured, that was the only plan. There are things I would change, but I am happy with it. What do you think? See?

      Thanks Pam! I had fun with the trees. Did them in white, too light, so I added darker tones to the branches. Have fun with you painting today 🙂 Secret garden… I like that 🙂


Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll take a minute and say hello. Always great to hear from you!
