I made a new friend, Heidi. That\’s what collector\’s become. Friends.
We share a love of beauty through art – its like a lasting conversation we continue to have together – once they take it home and put my art in a special place. Heidi, my friend, is a special collector who gave me a gift when she selected my painting, Delight, from my water series. Her glee when she received my painting would have been enough of a thanks,
She went above and beyond to share her wisdom with me, a gift, and turned my attention toward Mary Oliver, a poet of poets. My wildly passionate, adventurous feasting art-spirit often needs a bit of grounding, a moment to focus.
Started with a post of her poem….
\”My work is loving the world. Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird… \”
Then, well… got a reply from the publisher, Beacon Press, to my request to post it – they don\’t want Mary\’s poem posted in the world wide web. Bummer. So, I encourage you to go find her work elsewhere and devour it.
Thank you Heidi.
Thank You Mary.
