I'm about to tell you what the title of this blog means to me. The "Cabbage Roses", symbolizes the beauty of my present moment, my children and what I try to keep my thoughts on; the "& More" is all that my life touches... which encompasses the Author of my life.
As a novice, I'm always amazed at the art work that I'm able to do here ...all with the help of my computer. I started doing this just a few years ago and really enjoying this aspect of my life. I believe one is never to old to learn new ways. As an artist, I have worked in many different medias; right now the subject matter... is floral still life using oil pastels... & more.
Madonna of the Evening Flower... a religious poem by Amy Lowell
Then I see you,
Standing under a spire of pale blue larkspur,
With a basket of roses on your arm.
You tell me that the peonies need spraying,
That the columbines
have overrun all bounds,
You tell me these things.
But I look at you, heart of silver,
White heart-flame of polished silver,
Burning beneath the blue steeples of the larkspur,
And I long to kneel instantly at your feet...
May your day be full of laughter and joy
and all your dreams come true,
