There are more pinks and lavenders in the actual painting. They are always camera shy.

I saw the quote that is going around among the dance community: “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” True!

Last year, I fell in love with anemones. I am completely enamored. I wonder if they could ever be house plants?

My camera refuses to pick up the richness of subtle color, so the actual painting is more colorful.

Lead, Kindly Light, amidst th’encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home,
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

Saint Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801-1890)

OK, I know the title is pretty bad, but I think each painting that comes from my paints in this time will always remind me of these most unusual circumstances.
