Yep I sit in a dark corner and go into the ugly cry and feel incredibly sorry for myself until it is over. I wanted to share this because I know I am not the only person out there who feels badly afterwards that they haven't posted in a few weeks because there just didn't seem to be anything worthwhile to post about but there it is.
Anyway I crawled back out of the pit and did a painting that means a lot to me so I thought today would be a great day to post and share!
The background is covered in photocopies of letters my grandparents wrote to each other during the Depression. There are also a few fragments of letters my mom and aunt wrote to their father also. Most are from 1936 when grandpa was working in Pictou, Nova Scotia. He designed, built and installed boilers (heating systems) and managed to keep working all through the Depression with his trade. I still have some if his notebooks filled with his designs and scribbled notes.
The second wonderful thing the Lord blessed me with
during this last few weeks was the blooming of an old orchid that destined for the trash and I rescued her and have been nursing her for a couple of years, and finally she chose this past week to bloom.
So this week ended on a happy, bright note and this weekend I have loads of artwork to get to and I love it! I will also ....gasp....have time to visit my favorite blogs and see how everyone else is doing.
Love to all!Tina xo
