Week 28 - Playing

I'm playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.

This week, I played. It was fun. I'm doing it again. Soon.

Meet Byron Fox...

This foxy character was constructed from packing paper, wire, tape, glue, paint, and strips of the poem, She Walks in Beauty, by Lord Byron.


She Walks in Beauty

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent.


Poetry is great, right? Remember back before computers, when letters and love poems were a thing.

When's the last time you sent a handwritten letter to someone? I remember the anticipation of reading a letter, settling down, getting perfectly comfy, then cracking the envelope. It was so special.

Things come back in Vogue. Wouldn't it be great if letters and affirmations of love started filling your mailbox instead of just flyers and bills?

Write me a letter, and I'll write you back...

Plein Air Season

The Lunenburg County Plein Air Group is back in action. This past Tuesday we had a blip in the rain, and descended upon Fort Point in LaHave. It's great to be out and about with other artists, painting the great outdoors... outdoors. For more info, and photos from our weekly plein air outings, check out our page on Facebook.


Until next week...
