💝WELL LOVELIES! IT’S TIME FOR SWEET GRANDMOTHERS AND TENDER STORIES📓
I live in a block of flats and one of my many neighbours is an elderly woman (approximately 83 years in age).
So, One day (3 months ago) I was returning home with my son from his nursery and I could see a familiar elderly lady standing aimlessly outside the flat entrance or maybe the word I’m looking for is confused (she looked very confused), clutching onto a blue rubber bag, the type you get from the fish market when you buy an ounce of prawns, except it looked as though there were a couple of documents in this ‘sacred’ rubber bag.
I recognised her by her hunched back and fairly frail frame. It was a cold blustery day and she looked so alone, I just wanted to hug her! I could see her head scarf blowing erratically against the motion of the violent wind. I briskly walked over to…

❄🎿HI LOVELIES! THESE ARE WONDERFUL WORDS, AND THE MERMAID OF THE SNOW IS BEAUTIFUL
Don’t aim for me when I’m gone,
when all there’s left are memories of old songs I sung;
don’t aim with roses or with a gun,
when all there’s left are memories of the tears and fun…
The birds have migrated to the West my love,
each and every empty nest now boasts of only a story,
which you, my poet, would sing in prose,
sing and sing and sing of all our glory…

The birds don’t sing anymore, my love,
they dance to a music only they can hear,
they kindle flames and therein burn,
then rise again, amid festive cheer…
Don’t aim for me when I’m gone,
but sing old songs we both have sung;

❄🌞WELL BEAUTIES! HAVE A NICE DAY. THIS MORNING IN BARCELONA 20 ° BUT I LOVE THIS SNOWY LANDSCAPE.
It’s an abrupt start to winter, isn’t it? It feels like I was painting boat scenes only a few weeks ago. But the snow arrived suddenly and seems to be sticking around in Montreal, much to my delight. Usually I can only paint scenes like this on my winter school holiday in January.
At -10C, it’s was too cold this morning to be outside with an easel, so this one was painted in my warm studio, after a walk with Alice. These days, Arches rough paper is working well for me, and I am in the process of working with some different brushes which I will write about soon, probably when my school semester is over. I’m long overdue to update my materials page too, but again, it will be in a few weeks when I have more time. In the meantime, I’m just happy to sneak in a few hours…

🌲🌲🌲HELLO LOVELIES! IT’S TIME FOR FIRS 😉
Frozen in place, sunk
Horse stands still, I slide sideways
In boot sucking mud!
Art Prescription: So while I was horsing around I took a dip in the mud. I just have to laugh and carry on.
The horses were grateful for dry hay into their run-in sheds.
Feeling the holiday spirit I did a little mixed media painting:
