Creating my own Lilly Pond πŸ˜Š

Using a palette knife is one of the most exciting ways to paint. The results are unexpected and mostly quite energetic and vibrant to look at.

After the gentleness of watercolours, this is a particularly heavy technique.

It’s these opposites that attract me to art so greatly 🎨😁


Simple Pleasures of Life πŸŒΌπŸ’•

The morning
Gathered around me
Like a cloak of warmth
Embracing me
In its welcoming comfort
Easing me
Into the day
The familiar
And the unexplored
United together
The heart
The mind
Peaceful… πŸ’•

I chased a butterfly today πŸ˜πŸ¦‹

I chased a butterfly today πŸ¦‹πŸ˜

Over rocks and green grass
I laughed and ran
She skittered
And flitted
Like a drunk man

Never stopping
For more than
A second
On any one
Flower or leaf
Running this way
and that
A graceful
Errant thief

She stopped
To catch her breath
And so did I
It was then
That I noticed
That naughty sparkle
In her eye πŸ‘€βœ¨

The Peace we Carry β€οΈ

We carry our lives
Within us
Our worries
Our stresses
Our joys
Our dreams.
And, sometimes,
We come out
Of ourselves
And confront
The beauty around us
We stop
We just ‘are’
For that fraction
of a moment
We make a memory
That we’ll carry
In our hearts
That memory of
A golden tree
A golden road
And a stranger
His prayers… πŸ’•
