Painted this from a photo on another blogger’s site.  This blogger is on a spiritual pilgrimage called Camino in Spain.  This was the outside wall of a monastery somewhere in Spain that houses pilgrims overnight during their journey.

Chocolate

I sing the praises of bread, wine, and cheese.  For me chocolate is a food group all its own.  I’m a dark chocolate devotee.

Music has always been an important influence in my life.  My music teacher brother had thousands of cd’s and introduced me to a wide range of music growing up.  When I paint/draw I often have music going in the background.  For me, art and music go hand in hand.

Rolls

These cinnamon rolls make think of the weekend and of Christmas.  We always had cinnamon rolls at Christmastime.  The very smell brings back a floodgate of memories.  The holidays are a time to remember.  It is true that the holidays can stir a mixture of good and bad memories and I think that is because both kinds get tangled up in one another.  They don’t happen apart from the people we love and the places that matter.

Still Life (Matchbox)

As a kid we camped a lot.  I always remember the box of wood stick matches dad would use to light the camp stove and the lanterns.  Those were great times, some of my best memories derive from those trips.

What if we could ride a wave right into the arms of the person we miss the most?  Wouldn’t that be wonderful!
