|Corita Kent's 'Rainbow Swash' |
Iconic Landmark Gas Tank on Boston Harbor
8x8 oil on cradled panel
Happy 2012. I wish every one of you, along with my dearest family and friends a fresh outlook on life, more kindness given and received, more moments lived in the 'now', more compassion for all living beings, more satisfaction with the 'little' things that happen daily and joy from inside.
I am blessed with much yet, sometimes I see the glass as half empty when it's half full. Why? It's human nature. I don't believe that it's realistic to be happy, happy, happy every moment. Life's a tapestry of good stuff and not so good stuff. I have to remind myself to look at the gifts I've been given in the people I care about, the world I live in, and the gift of being able to translate light and form into my vision of what I see.
I so appreciate the journey that this blog has taken me on and I am delighted at all the comments and visits I received and the relationships that have come from being a part of a global art community. I wish for all of you to find your bliss, whatever it is and let it light you from within. That's the only happiness that's lasting and satisfying.
This iconic Gas Tank at the edge of Boston Harbor was painted in 1971 by Corita Kent and was eventually torn down and rebuilt. Each company, the latest being National Grid, has elected to repaint it as she did. The GJWP December Challenge which I chose, was Local Landmarks and I am impressed at what the girls came up with!!
Also, My MacBook Pro is on order and I am still limping along with my Dell which runs for about 6-9 minutes and freezes or crashes. Slow going but I'm about to join the Mac Cult. Pass the kool-aid please :D
