SHE COMES WITH A LITTLE BIT OF DRAMA




Spring comes with a little bit of drama. Sharp edges on her light and shadows. Strong wind. Dribbles of clouds with bright sun. Long breakfasts, walks and many movies in a film festival with friends. Beautiful scenes, long talks. One lighthouse, a bit of snow, a lot of sunshine. Unread newspapers, many lists to remember.

Five flora illustrations for Oh Comely magazine (issue 9) for an article about Thomas Pausz.

Secrets from the 90´s were hiding in a pocket of an old jacket. Two 10 pennies coins from 1991 with beautiful pictures of lily of the valley.

Windy but warmest Monday afternoon greetings.

  2. Lupine Ridge

    Long after we are gone,
    Summer will stroke this ridge in blue;
    The hawk still flies above the flowers,
    Thinking, perhaps, the sky has fallen
    And back and forth forever he may trace
    His shadow on its azure face.

    Long after we are gone,
    Evening wind will languish here
    Between the lupine and the sage
    To die a little death upon the earth,
    As though over the sundown prairies fell
    A requiem from a bronze-tongued bell.

    Long after we are gone,
    This ridge will shape the night,
    Lifting the wine-streaked west,
    Shouldering the stars. And always here
    Lovers will walk under the summer skies
    Through flowers the color of your eyes.

    1. Paying with Lily of The Valley feels like a fairy tale.

  4. From a cool autumn night here in Melbourne to a spring with a punch of drama, watching and feeling the seasons as they change is something I enjoy. It makes me feel more connected to nature. Obvious, yes, but true.

    1. True indeed.

      Today the spring is reminding how it takes steps backwards. In shapes of huge wet snowflakes, like lace falling from the sky.

  5. In my mind's eye I see those dribbling clouds. For me, today was a rarity, sunshine and snowflakes in Seattle.

    1. It must have looked very pretty in there.

      Here the snowflakes come from a grey sky. The kind of grey that many times cover the background of my paintings.

      Many warm greetings to Seattle.

    1. Ehkä se sävyn vaihto on vain hyvä piristys. Tai kuten ystäväni sanoo, "virheet tekevät asioista paljon mielenkiintoisempia". Uskon niin.

      Maanantain lämpöisiä toivotuksia, vaikka räntää leijuukin ilmassa!
