Thistle Love

9x9 pastel on uart
I realize at this point I have two loves or muses. Fields with some wild flowers and bodies of water. The field that I dreamed about, that I painted constantly last year has been mowed down. I almost cried. But, I had to realize nothing is that precious. The muse is in me and the field feeds it. So I drove up the street and saw this.

What a joyous painting! It's like a happy dream. Your muse is strong, Loriann!

Impermanence! Your painting of the new field is so much more lovely than the photo of it!

I always adore your fields. I thought of you so often when I was working on the field one I just posted. Thanks for passing that love along.
Such a gorgeous painting.

Thanks Janelle, Leah and Karen. This place is gorgeous...it's hard not to find many special places. Although unfortunately that doesn't always mean paint them well. Taking workshops and processing the information is always a challenge. I will check out everyone's new work when I am still.
Leah, Impermanence. Hmmmmmmmm, now that is still a challenge , but real,
