Things have been a little quiet around here lately, mostly because I'm working on a couple of commissioned pieces and I don't like to show those things until they're safe at home with their owners. I don't want to ruin their surprise!
I've been in a bit of a reflective mood lately as we approach 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. When I was a kid a friend of mine had a large coffee table book full of photos of wreckage and stories about the survivors on that ill-fated trip. She'd invite me over to play Barbies, and I really just wanted to get lost in that book, full of such mystery and strange heartache. I still remember a photo of a fragment of some long-ago little girl's ceramic doll, there at the bottom of the ocean. It still gives me a shiver to think about.
One thing is for sure though, I will remain firmly on dry land today and try to get some painting done. Thanks for visiting me here today :) let's both look for a lull in the day when we can curl up with a good book, sound like a good plan?
