On the road last night, engulfed in dark rain, I let my mind wander to days long past, much like this. 

 

You were driving, I pretended to doze, while I watched you secretly under lowered eyelids.  Storm clouds clustered in the valley below us; lightning slashed the sky, while we, at our safe distance, were teased by the sprinkles tossed in its wake.  The farther we plunged into the valley, the farther it retreated, allowing only a glimpse of the ferocity in its flight.

 

You and I, walking together in the drizzle, me marvelling at how while others cowered away from the showers pouring down, you seemed to walk straighter, stand stronger.  I admired the broad lines of your shoulders, the casual and confident ease in your movements, as the raindrops gently dampened your hair and neck.

Whew... busy week, glad it's nearly over!  I spent most of the week on the road for work, conducting training sessions around our district.  On a more pleasant note, I got to visit my newborn baby brother in the hospital!  I've been an only child for almost 27 years, but no more!  I'm over the moon... I'm so happy.  :)

I went for a trip to do some sketching today.  Feeling interested in continuing my work with flowers, I played around with some ideas.  I was thinking about sketching some water plants; there are some beautiful ponds and water gardens around my town that start blooming this time of year that are hugely inspirational to me.  It's funny... I have a much easier go of capturing flowers that are more freeform in structure.  Gladiolas are my favorite flower, which I depicted in my painting.  Their feathery petals and long arching stalks draw me right in.  I am struck by the amazing, vibrant colors of water lilies, but I find their smooth, unlined symmetry to be a beast of a challenge to express.  I chose some purple water iris to sketch, and had an amazing afternoon of it.

 Playing with painting... acrylic on canvas.
The blue painting above... I wanted to try "experimenting" a little too today, to shake myself around.  I figured I'd play around with my paints a little bit just to see what happened.  It was just fun, mostly because I made something unlike anything I usually do, but more because I was just going with it.

You cannot take hold of it,
But you cannot lose it.
In not being able to get it, you get it.
When you are silent, it speaks;
When you speak, it is silent.
