An appropriate image of turbulent serenity on a Monday when waters run Mystic and try to grasp why things happen as they happen.

Une peinture et des mots qui me touchent particulièrement ce matin...
Hier soir, j'ai perdu mon Olwen, ma chienne dalmatienne.
Toute l'après-midi, j'ai peint le ciel de prochaine peinture en pensant à elle. Je lui dédiais ce ciel. Aussi je l'ai traité avec douceur. C'est peut-être là que je souhaitais la voir.
Pardon, pour ce moment de confidence...
Mais en admirant le vôtre et celui de votre publication précédente, j'ai expulsé mon ressenti.
J'ai beaucoup admiré également votre petit bouquet avec ses merveilleuses couleurs et cette belle lumière qui l'illumine.
gros bisous à vous.

Paint and words that touch me particularly this morning ...
Last night, I lost my Olwen, my Dalmatian dog.
All afternoon, I painted the sky next painting thinking of her. I would dédiais the sky. I also treated gently. It may be that I wanted to see.
Forgiveness, for this time of confidence ...
But admiring yours and your previous issue, I felt my deported.
I also greatly admired your bunch with its beautiful colors and this beautiful light that illuminates.
Big kisses to you.

(Thanks, Martine. So sorry to hear of your Olwen) :(

Gorgeous skies in a beautiful landscape. If we turn into songs, I hope I turn into a harp song.

P. S. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend, Celeste. She was much too young to leave this world.

Magnificent painting. Beautiful tribute. I didn't know the lady, but she died way too young. Sorry for your loss.

Wow ...what a painting!

If I was to be remembered by a song I choose this by the counter-tenor Andreas Scholl with Largo di Handel : Ombra mai fu

Always so sad to loose someone...it makes a big hole in your life that's slow to heal. Especially sad to hear about someone dying so young. Beautiful painting, Celeste.
