Still Life with Lemon

I’m really enjoying still life painting at the moment. I have always loved the intriguing metaphysical qualities of the work of Georgio Morandi and Juan Sánchez Cotán and they inspire and instill a sense of peace and mystery.

Joni in California

I heard it in the wind last night
It sounded like applause
Chilly now
End of summer
No more shiny hot nights
It was just the arbutus rustling
And the bumping of the logs
And the moon swept down black water
Like an empty spotlight

From ‘For the Roses’ Joni Mitchell.

Painting ‘Joni at the Window’ by Alice Mason. In my Etsy shop:

Tin Angel

Varnished weeds in window jars
Tarnished beads on tapestries
Kept in satin boxes are
Reflections of love’s memories

Letters from across the seas
Roses dipped in sealing wax
Valentines and maple leaves
Tucked into a paperback

Guess I’ll throw them all away
I found someone to love today

Dark with darker moods is he
Not a golden Prince who’s come
Through columbines and wizardry
To talk of castles in the sun

Still, I’ll take a chance and see
I found someone to love today

There’s a sorrow in his eyes
Like the angel made of tin
What will happen if I try
To place another heart in him

In a Bleeker Street cafe

I found someone to love today
I found someone to love today

Joni Mitchell

In Love with Where I Am

For as long as I can remember I have been pursued by wanderlust,  pulling me gently away by the hair..

However this past year I have been forced to be thankful for the beauty of where I live and every day I try to walk, whether through sun, rain, mud or snow.  Today was the hardest walk of them all. From Hastings old town through Ecclesbourne Glen to the rocky beaches only accessible by precipitous paths on foot.  It was the most challenging walk, although the sun was beautiful,  the air blessedly cool with no wind at all. The mud made it even harder on the incrediby steep rocky paths, trying to navigate in wellies.  Pretty humbling.  At times I felt defeated, but it was so worth it when I climbed that final hill and threw myself on the grass just before the sun went down.
