Today is blustery but this ship has a steady course. Craig made it when he was in an active metal sculpting period here in Holland. I enjoy looking at it every day as I come and go from this little island.
While a friend of mine was meditating, I painted her serenity. It worked for her and for me, too. Afterwards I thought to add the tissue paper panels on the sides which give it so much more life and light.
This image has nothing to do with my personal art work. It is a photo of a photo taken in a museum in Amsterdam. We seem to all be doing such things now which might be considered plagerism in older days. It is an art work made from an art work.
It does sum up my feeling about what is happening over here.
Roses are still holding out here in The Netherlands. The Heart of the Hilltowns show has been dismantled and waiting for me to round up getting portraits to their owners. That will happen around Thanksgiving when I will be back in Cummington. Meanwhile I am painting portraits and flowers here and wishing you all well.
