"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Goethe

Hmmmmmmm. . .

Yesterday I went to see a local art exhibit because--I'm interested--but also because I want local efforts to get a response.  Let me just say, we have done a disservice to young artists by letting them assume that artists are in an elite category and anything that they assemble is somehow mystically aesthetic and meaningful.  I signed my name to the book but did not add to the comments of, "fantastic, and "promising artists."

It doesn't seem exactly right to post a painting of mine after saying that, but here it goes.  This is the finished painting ready to post on http://paintanddrawtogether.blogspot.com/


  1. I think this is just beautiful. You are really making me want to take a painting class, now I just need to have the time:)

  2. Thanks for the compliment, Leah. I hope you paint, too. You are doing plenty of creative stuff, now though. The time will come.
