Grateful for Hospitality

I am grateful on this day, 
Saturday 11th December 2010,

A week ago tonight

in this bed
It was kindly given up for me
after a lovely day of

girlfriend gathering,
 celebrations
and Dior Exhibition

Oh yes, the Virgin Mother, being just that. Wonderful painting no matter how the artist held the tools. Great post.

Peace to you Ms. Foxy

Sue,
I love coming here and seeing your friends and family. It warms my heart in a way you cannot imagine. It is like visiting really because you offer such an openness in doing it. Thank you. I am grateful for that! I love this little nativity scene and I am reminded of Christy Brown and the story of 'My Left Foot' if you are familiar with it. My own mother had Parkinson's disease and found that drawing and painting was something that gave her great joy and solace. I love that you posted this. Thank you for your lovely words on my blog yesterday.
xoxo,
Noelle

your painting looks Batik. I love the simplicity

I was thinking the same thing as Deb - batik. I was surprised to see that it was painted by mouth. The control is spectacular. I've also been meaning to asking you were you found the wonderful advent calendar.

I love today's virgin, and even more when I learned that it is mouth-painted. It is so beautiful and touching at the same time.

What courage and determination this artist has to paint this beautiful nativity scene.

There is no limit as to what we can do if we just let ourselves discover them! The mouth painting is very humbling along with a sense of awe.
Our attitudes and beliefs (or lack thereof I suppose) are our greatest limitations.
What a lovely trip you seemed to have had!

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
