I wish it were as easy to sidestep grief as it is to avoid the piercing pain of thorns. But God’s beauty is evident everywhere, if we search for it. His comfort is most palatable in the deep places. It’s also when it’s the most precious and appreciated.
I sidestep treacherous thorns
thistles in bloom
Art is therapeutic. Nature is therapy. And flowers are one of our Creator’s love languages to us.
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
Isaiah 40:8 KJV

climbing over the arbor
to reach as high as I can
with my creative passions
I’ve begun writing tanka poetry on my Facebook page and decided to try one here too.
Although I’ve enjoyed writing haiku, I love the two extra lines the tanka allows.
This watercolor pencil painting was inspired by a photograph I took in my garden.
Are you aspiring to reach higher with your artwork?
Blessings for 2018 ~ Wendy
Who dressed flowers with splendor
solace filled my soul
Oxalis grow abundantly in my garden. My favorites are the large pink ones.
Blessings ~ Wendy ❤

I’m always touched by the sweet things my husband remembers.

she picks a bouquet
and prepares a pot of tea

out of our reach
untouched beauty for all
Painted from a picture I took at a local public garden.
I experimented by using more than one type of paint.
