It’s been hard, but I’ve finally got my ducks in a row. Have a great weekend.
Some hide their treasures in buildings dark and grey.
I prefer mine encased in glass, and topped with a golden roof.
You really can’t contain the Borealis.
Today’s painting is part of a show at Gallery 78 in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
The Mason jar has returned.
Both of my parents were immigrants to Canada. One was from Ireland, the other was born in Scotland. My mother’s family before their disembarkation attended a church service for the prospective immigrants. During that service the above message was given. Over the past year or so it seems like we are all living in a strange land. I hope you can find prosperity, and more importantly peace as you navigate your own strange land.
On February first we started a renovation at our house. It began with a demolition of our present kitchen/dining area. Like almost all creative endeavours it began with a mess. It takes a great deal of effort to envision how this present chaos will be transformed a comfortable living space. Experience however tells me that time, effort, sweat, and creativity will win out (fingers crossed).
Today’s post is one of my “Preserve” paintings. The items preserved are gem stones. Well, actually they are glass marbles and a CBC button. Everyone has their own ideas about what gems are.
Wishing everyone a wonder-filled Christmas.
