Cardoon, daffidol bud and hyacynth in snow.

And God said: ‘ Let the waters bring out moving creatures that have life. Birds to fly above the earth in the sky of heaven’… and God created the great whales, every living creature that moves…swims or flies…and God saw it was good and God blessed them to multiply well filling the waters and the earth. The evening and the morning were the fifth day .

Genesis 1: 20 -23 (Sandy’s understanding)
Snow has fallen .
Big wet snow flakes with more expected. Roy was working on getting rid of weeds on Monday.
It was all done just in time.
Today cardoon and daffidol
soldier on with tulip leaves.
All standing tall.

These are some words from Georgia O’Keeffe about how she felt about her painting:

I had to create an equivalent for what I felt about what I was looking at – not copy it.

To create one’s world in any of the arts takes courage.

I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life – and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do.

The buds of the hyacinth stalk.
One floret just opening to show the palest of pink skin tone.
A vulnerable colour.
All yesterday.

I often painted fragments of things because it seemed to make my statements as well as or better than the whole could.

Georgia O’Keeffe An American Modernist artist, she was born 15 Nov 1887 and died aged 98 on 6March 1986.
Experiencing low temperatures under the snow.
The pale floret at right angles to the stalk.
All today.

Press on this Georgia O’Keeffe A brief History.(school friendly) if you would like to know a little more about her.

May your time be blessed with all the joy of creativity.

Sandy 😶‍🌫️ I think this is snow!
