Lady Wisteria- Guest Heart Thursday

This piece is a commissioned drawing for a friend of mine.  It is of her lovely Mother.  I put an Art Nouveau feel to the drawing--and there are hearts everywhere.  How many can YOU find?

Walking along the banks of the Willamette River near my home, I was excited to share the beauty of the area with my young Friend, Casi.  She was seeking new willow for basket weaving.  We also share a passion for herbs and wild plants, so I enjoyed learning how to use them.  For example, I learned the leaves, flowers and berries of the Hawthorne tree are not only good for high blood pressure, but can soothe the wheezing breath of an asthmatic.

I took many pictures of sky and waters.  I was sure I had captured a face in the clouds.  Several days later, when I looked at the pictures from our walk, I could hardly believe what I saw.

I often sense the supernatural--the footsteps and Presence of Him whom I love, as I walk in the forests, slip down to my beloved river, or work among the plants in my garden.  As you see, we were not alone. 

Above you see my original photo of His sweet face, as I first caught glimpse of Him in the clouds.

Watching Over You

I thought it was about time to put up another Cloud painting.  I know this is one I've shared before, but there's a reason I'm putting it up again.

I just received a phone call from someone I've never met, who's seen my artwork down at the Starduster Diner located at our little airport.  He wants to buy it right off the wall!  I feel so astonished.

But perhaps not.  I know there are angels watching over the pilots as they fly.  If I were a pilot, I'd want this hanging on my wall, too. 

My first rendition of this piece did not have the angel.   I had sent a small copy to one of our friends, who's little granddaughter saw it sitting on her piano.  The tiny girl was excited to point out the angel protecting the airplane.  As you can see in the original photo, there IS an angel there.  But it took a little child to see it!
