* Canvases..of cloth and dirt.

Last Dance ©Morri

24″ x 32″ acrylic on canvas (sold)



I were

to be

a flower,

’tis a wild rose





I’ve been busy outside. It is beautiful weather here in NE Florida, and I am taking advantage of it. I’ve been tidying up some areas and re-arranging some flower beds. Gardens are like canvases .. only of dirt. :) Of course, I’ve added to my winter vegetable garden and planted a few more herbs.

Divine little radishes in the garden (red and white).

(white radishes are a new addition)

Delicious dishes to come of  Thyme  planted in garden vessel

(this very heavy shell vessel was abandoned..can you imagine!)

Last but most certainly not least, I am slowly creating my rose garden which will mainly consist of antique roses. They are my most favorite roses of all..tough survivors they are and low maintenance.  I like that in roses and in people..I tend to be that way myself.

Here is a photo of the beginning of my antique rose garden.

The handsome Louis Philippe in the foreground & the lovely Miss Atwood touching garden bench.

It will be a place to paint roses, gather a few to enjoy inside, or simply to linger on the bench (another abandoned thing) in fragrant silence…one of my places to step away from the world (painting in the studio is another).

I hope you have such a place.. Speaking of roses. Note on Last Dance: The pink rose bud was the last one from my antique climbing rose-bush (it actually I think it was “murdered”). :( I still have the little antique was found in the attic of an 1880 house we are working on (more on that in time). This painting sold some years ago, and much to my regret, I have no idea who owns it. A mistake I let happen as a rookie artist. Well, enough for now. I’ve still not shared this new blog site on my facebook page. I think I like having a little place to come and go as I please NO obligation or stress about blog post deadlines. I know the “networking” experts advise having a regular schedule. I did that on my gypsy-heart blog..and that is where it all went awry for me. I stopped enjoying it. So I’ll come here when and if I have something to say..not just rambling words because I have to be on my blog schedule. so until that happens again…

Enjoy the journey!

    This is the right webpage for anybody who wishes to find out about this topic.

    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic that has been written about for decades.
    Excellent stuff, just excellent!

    […] Anyway, last week I spent lots of hours weeding, feeding, and nurturing. You may think me crazy (won’t be the last time you do), but I swear the plants responded with happiness. Images of my garden earlier on are an earlier post Canvases of  cloth and dirt. […]

    IG..for some reason this painting haunts me. At least, I had it professionally photographed, so I think I will have a giclee’ made for myself.
    Your words expressed what I attempted to say on painted canvas. :)

    Thank you for taking the time to leave me such kind notes!

    That rose is haunting… the bottle shines with a light – its almost as if the energy of the rose … went down the stalk and into the fluids within the glass – to find a new way to beam away the darkness…
