A little of my Scottish-Irish heritage just swam by.
Wishing all a year full of hope and amazement.
Wishing everyone a Happier New Year!
Sometimes it’s all a clutter.
Where the Heart Is
Today’s post is a somewhat stylized image of the house I grew up in.
No doubt it faced its share of storm clouds but at its foundation it was a place where the heart was.
My Cafe Terrace at Night
This is not my first go round with social isolation. When I was 13 I struggled through a bout of Rheumatic Fever. I was in the hospital for two months after which I was confined to our house for an additional two months. It was during this pre-internet era that I was forced to find a way to pass time when I couldn’t go outside. My mom bought me a fantastic set of markers, and they came in a tin case decorated with Van Gogh’s “Café Terrace at Night”. It was my first introduction to Fine Art. I loved those markers and I kept the tin long after the markers had run dry. Many springs have passed since that time, but it was there that the seeds were sown for a lifetime love of image-making.
Keep safe everyone.

Beginning 2020 by the seashore.
