A thing of beauty is a joy forever

Am keying this in from my hammock, with a cool breeze blowing.. Am so glad that we finally put the hammock up.. Also doubly glad that I have a laptop :-)Such a relaxed day.. Made this painting this morning, just after the kids left for school.. Was seized by this compelling urge to paint a particular plant in my garden.. It had bloomed and was looking so beautiful that it inspired me to paint. .Loved that dead flower at its base.. Serves as a reminder that nothing lasts forever(except diamonds and paintings may be!) .. Beauty fades, things and people grow old.. Relationships change as do situations.. Some friends go out of your life.. Some new ones move in sometimes you reconnect with someone you lost touch years ago.. and that is always wonderful.

I love teaching or learning Art.. Gives me so much joy to see a thing of beauty created by anyone..Have a class at 4:30 in the evening.Let me go and plan for it.
