Sketch for Second Set of Panels


I have been feeding the local Jays, black oil seed in the Droll Yankees squirrel-proof feeder. The Blue Jays are almost too heavy for the weighed perch, but the squirrels now have to feed off the ground. The Jays have been coming in groups like this and making their usual ruckus and also that rare yodeling call. I thought the flurry would make some good ceiling panels

I'm loving this blogging world. I created my first blog about a month ago. My neice, "Showing up for the Muse" is currently my only follower. I was on her site this morning and looking at the blogs she followed. For some reason, I chose to take a look at yours. Loved it - loved the paintained - but it was the following that got to me ....
FROM ROBERT GELG'S EMAIL: One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul and yet no one ever comes to sit by it," said Vincent. "Passersby see only a wisp of smoke rising from the chimney and continue on their way." This statement is the grim outlook of many of us. Success or no success, joy or no joy, we are alone. And it is to this private struggle that we must consign our energy, our focus, and our lives.

I am not an artist, I am a writer (a failed writer in terms of having any success) but I write because I must. Am lazy about it, don't take classes and have no illusions about ever being published (aha! the egotistical joy of having a blog) .. but in my heart and soul I am a writer. You write well, but your heart and soul are in your paintings, not in your words. Having so concretely exposed who and what you are through paintaings is, in my view, a SUCCESS story.
