Looking into My Journal

Journal Page done on water color paper. I have not been in my studio for a week or so..
I am one of those artist who goes through the moods.. My mind is just tired lately and so as it affects the body is too is just too tired also.
So when I am not in my studio. Where am I ? Reading and taking care of my Mom.

So for the love of the trees, I thought I would post another one for you. As you all know that reads my blog..Trees are beautiful and it makes me sad when so many are cut down. So fall is coming up and it is a time to do fall planting and why not plant a new tree.. I am looking for a new one now.. I think I will look for a Dogwood, I would love to plant a pink one. I planted a white dogwood last fall and lost him. I could not dig him up and so all
summer it stayed in my yard. It was a perfect landing spot for the birds to stop and take a rest.. So he had a purpose. He looked like the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. Today my Mom had visitors and among them were children. Great Grand children and so being 10 and boys they brought the tree down..
The funny thing it made me sad...I know..Silly. So it is time to replace him with a new pink dogwood and hope this year it will live and grow into a beautiful large tree. No I will not place it in the same spot..
So you can see I do not live a very exciting life..LOL.....
Thanks for stopping by and sorry for not posting in awhile.

May you always dream in color.

I think that light behind the tree is halo like! Don't feel bad about not posting, there's a time and a season and only so many hours in a day!

ahh, but you live a sweet, good life and i get what you feel about losing the tree- i feel the same way about those we lose on the farm. and i love your watercolor! i loved your watercolor of the tree and i also loved your yellow step-into-it post. the yellow was so intriguing and bright that it was almost like walking into the the sunshine!

No need to apologize about not posting....we all have lives! I get behind, too. I'm just happy that you were able to share this painting with us....the trees are beautiful. I love the light behind them....it's almost like a doorway beckoning me into another world.
