Life can take people in directions unexpected.
For a while there i was lost and am now, albeit slowly, finding me again.

I'm trying to reconnect with my art, and have only had moments here and there to paint.
Sometimes taking paints out, bought canvases, only to put them away or stack them in an unused room.

Wishing to have continued to be a part of the wonderful art community which i followed for years; connecting through forums and blogs, but this was totally out of my reach and not possible.

Now uploading, i realise how removed i have become. 

Fleeting moments here and there to view my stagnant blog or any kind of art works online only added to my pain. Wishing i had the energy and focus to keep up with all who encouraged me and that i in turn also supported.

In uploading something here... it is solely because i want to be held accountable for at least keeping that small flicker of light which is my passion to paint alive - to continue my journey, my diary.

The feather here.. as i've always believed is the symbol of 'faith'.

So out of touch i have been, that it was only recently i found out about Nick Simmons. 

To Nick... every time i pick up my brush these last few months, i have thought of you and your support of me here on the blog as i started out in art. Makes me so sad... my heart goes out to Olga and Larissa and to those who loved you as a friend and admired your work as an artist. 
A beautiful, giving soul gone too soon.
Rest easy NNG 

On a last note.. my mother would be proud that i have had the fortitude to go on. 
She loved my paintings and she also knew how much happiness it gave me to be part of a community of artists, both at a local level here in Sydney and online.
She also knew, through me, about the wonderful artists i followed and admired.

She watches me now.

To my Angel... 
Ti voglio un bene da non finire.
There is no end to my love... it is infinite.

Mrs Willow aka Sandra Wilson comes to Sydney

My first words to Sandra when i laid eyes on her and hugged her were
"You are real!"

Sandra and i intially met through an online art forum in 2007, and ever since then have been comunicating with each other the last three years through redbubble, our art blogs and video link through skype.
It was indeed surreal and a thrill to finally meet when she visited in Sydney last week.

Knowing Sandra has been wonderful, for she is always there with kind words of encouragement,
time, wisdom and balanced viewpoint.
She is only too happy to cast her artistic eye over my work and i value this 
for she is an accomplished artist working in many mediums, mainly in watercolour.

Most of all i greatly appreciate her friendship
and i have come to love her for all the support and love she extends to me.

Safe trip home Sandra
and i hope that one day i too can visit you in country Victoria.
all my love

I have chosen to show some of Sandra's watercolour works which are my favourites.

My apologies for not showing anything new here.
I was revisiting some of my past work today and
thought i'd post this one again with some words i recently read.

When people want to be insulting,
all they need do is accuse someone of having their head in the clouds
or being lost in a fantasy.
It's a cheap and easy form of attack,
and it is so unfair.

Reality is different for each one of us.
Nobody can put their hand on their heart and say,

'I understand what's actually going on in this Universe.'

We can always try to influence the opinions that others have of us, but we cannot control these.
We have no power to force people to see us in a particular way
if they have already made up their mind to do so without taking the time to know us. 
Nor can we afford to worry too much if they get the wrong idea about
who we are and what we are all about.
If you are doing your best, your best will be good enough.
jonathan cainer

 i write..
be kind to each other
show compassion and understanding
for the World is more than we know
and who knows what the Universe has in store for Us
each experience will have us grow into who we will be at the end of our days
we can be certain of only some things
we are all unique in our way of thinking, seeing, feeling and expressing
we are all precious
all needing support
all needing love
in some form
