Dawn

“The First together is the morning itself

the marrying wish of dew

the first dance of the grass,

renewed like a child’s clock.

The Early light unaware of the low hum

that entwines the mood of the air-

strangely worshiping

in high memory cries.

And we remember the ghosts better in the morning,

the rising light that is always a grace

on the back of the things you love

scattered through the house like Lego.

The bed remains ancient in its ritual of worship

a personal attack against strangers

made up of all its own Trojan wars

hung in literature, un-debated.

It is easy to believe that is is privilege to grow old

in the morning and that age is young

and all that is above will remain immortal

regardless of loneliness.

~ Greta Bellamacina

Experimenting on a smaller canvas for some larger scale pieces that I will be working on soon. This is part of my Bloom series, but a little more abstract than the previous versions. Will be experimenting with both versions as they get larger and will share of course. xo

This was a tough year for me to say the least, but what is slowly coming out of it is a graceful appreciation for each day even more than before. I have always been grateful for each day, but after loosing my Mom and then facing heart ablation surgery only 6 months later, I can definitely recognize being in the moment with a new strength. It also opened up new ideas for my art,… which is taking advantage of the season along with what I already love to create. With that, you will be seeing more and more of nature that I will be incorporating along with my other art.

I have the { Saisonnier series }, which will be what inspires me and the creations; ( like above from June) and then also the { Bittersweet Series } Which below is beauty I love from wilted flowers and or other nature finds that are in season. I cannot wait to share. xo

Happy Summer!

I am very grateful to be posting again as I am in my 2nd full week, today post heart surgery. I have posted more about it on my Instagram if you want to read a little about it all.

Overall though, almost a 360 degree change in my mind with how confident and peaceful I feel being on the healing side post procedure. ( Which was a Catheter Ablation for SVT, AVNRT ) Supraventricular Tachycardia, that I was diagnosed with in May after two trips to the ER. Something that I was born unknowingly with and has come out most likely due to stress, but so very grateful for how quickly I was able to get it taken care of and for having such an amazing Dr to help me through this entire process.

I look forward to creating again and getting back into my studio and sharing it all with you here.
