When shadow steals across my eyes, when chill sits in my soul, when cries
Of hopelessness and bitter cold would turn me hard, regretful, old,
I turn my memory to when I cradled happiness, and then
Remember that what shaped me so was love, the kind I came to know
From those great luminaries whose wisdom it was to seek and choose,
From the remotest needful place, pursuit of happiness and grace,
Who told in kindly, teaching voice that peace and joy are bought by choice,
That when the frozen dark descends, we’ll find our light
Kathryn – I am quite taken with Boon Companions. What is the medium? Lovely. Thanks for sharing
Hi, Maggie, and thanks! I was just over at *your* place, getting my subscription in there. 😉 I’m playing with digital illustration these days; my spouse bought me a shiny new iPad Air in January and I’m fiddling around happily with several free drawing programs and a stylus; previously, all of my digital work was done with my finger on a track pad on a much slower old laptop, so this feels mighty slick and, dare I say it, technologically advanced! Both pieces were done with a combination of those programs and Photoshop (a gift from my sisters, two of whom work for Adobe).
Cheers, and thanks for being here,
Well, it looks to me that you’ve mastered it! I look forward to more!
Me too 😉 —thanks!
oops – where are my manners? Thanks for the follow!
Only too happy to find new avenues for adventure! 😀
I love this:)x
Many thanks, Janet! I’m always very pleased when my stuff resonates with anyone else. 🙂
Lovely! You are truly a light my friend!
Likewise, Tig! I know that I am truly blessed to live in such a deep well of friends and loved ones that I can never fall to the bottom of it.
Love to you both,
Why, yes, you are! 😀 I find you are quite the illustration of my point of the day here, dear Laura.
Awwwe….that made me smile! Thank you so much. I feel like skipping….if I could lol.
We do don’t we
You know it! 😀
You are an inspiration mastering all this technology and doing it sooo well. Beautiful words as always and your art has gone up the ladder to new heights, congratulations
Thank you so much, my lovely! Every day brings new adventures.
Lovely images especially the last one. I love everything about it: the colours, the hearts, the wavy lines …. I was interested to read in your reply to a previous comment how you achieved the drawings, I am in awe as I am a bit of a dullard with technology. 😉
PS; the poem is lovely too. 😉
Thank you, B, you are a sweetheart. Trust me, I’m a technophobe and weakling when it comes to such stuff, too, so I stuck my toe into digital art-working ever so slowly and am becoming increasingly aware of how very, very little I know and am able to do. Ah, the way of all things, I guess. 😉 I’m glad, as always, that you’re here and enjoyed your visit!
Thank you Kathryn. 😉
Lovely all around, my friend, and I look forward to more of your beautiful work with your new technological toy! 🙂 xo
Gorgeous Kathryn! As always! Xxx
🙂 xoxoxo! Thanks!
Love the art and the poem!
Many thanks for that! 😀
Good poem! It’s so true that our friends are where the light and delight are.
I know very well that you recognize that; it’s evident in your own work and comments and poetic posts! 🙂
I especially like the first illustration of the leaves, Kathryn.
Thank you. A subject to which I consistently return, in part because every time I draw or paint a leaf I come up with something that I didn’t quite expect. So many possibilities.
Splendid, Kathryn, in all ways! XO
