Hope in a Hopeless World
Nina and I will be taking a break for a little while. Nothing major, just lots of Things To Do. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some thoughts from Phil Roy.
No clear path exists–
I see only haunted mist–
The silence harbors ghostlight–
landscape of omens and signs.
Tanka for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. I did a drip painting on some very wet rice paper, which ended up causing a hole in the paper. I had to put it on some watercolor paper to stabilize it and left it there to dry. So I ended up with three variations.
The top one is both layers together, the middle one is the rice paper alone (on black), and the bottom one is the watercolor paper with the color as it soaked through.

My cousin dressed in a lion suit holding up his new baby. Something about this photo just made me want to try to paint it.
I didn’t really get the slightly crazed look on his face but close enough. Happy to have painted this last night and today. Although life is crazy it always feels good to paint.
Kerfe reprimanded me in her gentle way for not posting all week. I apologize. It’s been a stressful week as my husband is moving to a group practice and we’re facing some challenges.
My neighbors built their sukkah yesterday and I told the kids I’d paint some of the symbolic fruits and leaves that can hang from the rafters. Here are some that I made for the kids to cut out and hang.
I will post a bird tomorrow for Draw a Bird day. I have been loving what Kerfe has posted this week. She’s a genius.
