I have a great love for bluebirds. When I was a child, my siblings and I were running up from the canyon, when we found a strange woven bag lying on the trail. I picked it up and three little bluebirds flew out. It was their nest and somehow had come loose and fallen.
I was so charmed. I've never lost my love for these little birds.
I hope you have a lovely weekend, dear Friends. Happy Paint Party Friday!
Here is a drawing I recently created of my sweet SnowBunny. Over 25 years ago the kids and I found her within the walls of what we called "the Carriage House." She was tiny, her eyes barely open. But she was ours from that moment. She was a wonderful cat who shared mothering the children with me. They were hers and I was hers, too. After a rich and full life, she passed away--I will always miss her and I fully expect to see her when I head off to heaven myself.
I hope you have a lovely weekend, dear Friends. Thank you for dropping by--it is always a joy to read your comments. Blessings and hope to you!
A midget who told me, when I was depressed about people making fun of me because we had no money and no new clothes and I was wearing everything second handed. He told me, "You are the only one in the world, make the most of it."

FILLS MY EYES...
When I see something unexpected, unusual, or beautiful, my focus suddenly sharpens and intensifies. The sensation tickles! That's when I say something "fills my eyes." It is the greatest compliment I can give.
My Camera and Me
I carry my camera everywhere I go. Here you see one of my Cloud Paintings. I find unusual shapes, faces, animals in just about everything, especially clouds. Often I am able to enhance or "paint" my photos so others can see what my imagination has revealed.
What an honor to be a featured artist for this wonderful webpage!
A Fairytale Mind
This is a link to my favorite book reviewer. Rena Lanyon gives a well-written review from a youthful perspective.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I have not a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me Lord." -- Darlene Pringle, Artist
"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass....it's about learning how to dance in the rain."
Life should be measured not by the number of years, but the love shared, the memories made, the joy given, the blessings received.
Old Woman Trees
The pine needles click…Click… Knitting stray wisps of wind
Into scarves of song.
