"I Miss You..."

Gosh!

Lately, there are some things I have really been missing!

Like green grass, rain, summer flowers, black soil,

my beautiful columbine garden,

and drawing.

Well...

I am on a roll now...

the Maruman_X Project is underway

my fears about starting my book have been squelched

and I am now finding

TIME

to think about this beautiful summer season,

my midwest gardens of the past,

and NEW ART

to make and share with all of you!

This drawing was inspired by a photograph of one of my beautiful

red columbines

and is dedicated to my sister-in-law

Sue

who appreciates the serenity of quiet moments

and is awaiting with hope and courage the

blooming of summer in the beautiful mountains

of her Colorado home.

Sue, I miss you the most!

God Bless!

Just simply beautiful! So glad to see you back!!

Margaret Ann said...

Thanks all...written with a big big smile!

Starr...this columbine came in a mixed flat including colors of yellow, white, red, and deep deep purple...the garden was really a color feast for the eyes ! But, as beautiful as they were they never came even close to the beautiful blue wild mountain columbines of Colorado. :)
