Purple Moon

I got up this morning feeling sad. I don't know why--some days are just like that. I worked a little, read a little--fed the fish and helped my husband with a project.

The sadness lingered, so I went upstairs to my studio, set up my easel and began to paint. Three hours later I stepped back from the canvas. As you can see, this is not my normal style at all. When I took Purple Moon downstairs to show my husband, I noticed the braided rug in my office is in exactly these colors.

So . . . can you see her?

I see the dear little kitty face, I'm so sorry that you are feeling sad. May happy memories fill your heart and send your sadness away.

This is a stunning picture, I've been away too long, I see that now as I catch up on your world. I love the painting of your brothers hands and the Earth. Beautiful.

Take care hun and I hope you feel better soon.

Unimagined influence?

You see and create images within images, as of you are so receptive to your emotional repertoire it translates itself into pictures.

We have a sick cat tonight, just an abscess, now lanced and treated with antibiotics but she's confined to barracks and that's hard for us all to deal with, especially for a cat who loves to roam.

Your Criquette is free now but you're left with the grief. And grief has a way of hitting you when you least expect it.

I think Elisabeth has it right. You are still grieving your dear kitty, and grief has a funny way of overwhelming us at times.

I can see the kitty face, sissie. Your painting is stunning. Wow.
