Lily of the Valley- Fortune in love; poisonous yet with healing powers; a symbol of the Virgin Mary; making the right choice.
I got back to painting today. I always return to painting. I need it like a shunt to drain the moulton passion out of my head and out of my heart. I did love the flower binge, the fun of making stuff, but all of that churning and burning starts to get to be too much inside of me eventually and I always go back to painting. Drawing is close to painting but not the same somehow. Maybe one of these days coming up, I'll give drawings away to the first one to comment on this blog. The drawings usually end up in a portfolio up the the shelf and rarely are seen again.
Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age. James Joyce
