Relaxation is in the Art

relaxation-is-in-the-art

Paint could be smelt drifting down the small narrow hallway, letting the others know that something was taking place in the small room at the back of the house. Usually you could hear the whirl of the sewing machine as a new vision came to life. Today though, the medium was paint and the inspiration was the view out the small window in the ceiling as the clouds drifted lazily in the sky. Those who snuck a peak from time to time, could hear the slowly sigh as the individual relaxed within the art room.

Little Winter Village

little-winter-village

Sometime during the night snow fell covering the front patio with rolling small hills of snow. I woke to hear the dog barking and the cat hissing and I made every attempt to hush them, for I was certain they were bothered by the raccoon that frequented our trash cans. Eventually they curled up at the foot of my bed and returned to their rhythmic snoring. In the morning I rushed around the house preparing for an outing with family and friends. I opened the door only to stop in my tracks as the little village glistened in the snow. Two tiny robots, where they came from I do not know, stopped moving around and looked at me. I forgot what I was doing as the little robots returned to work planting trees around their little winter village.

Quiet

quiet

After a long night of entertaining friends and family to ring in the new year, the welcome sound of silence filled the air. Slowly things were put back in their places leaving little or no trace of the party from the night before. Here and there a cup could be found, an empty plate or two, and bowls empty that once held treats for guests, could no longer be found scattered around. Quiet filled the air as she spent the early morning hours cleaning up the evidence. Standing back she looked around and smiled quietly before making her way back to bed to catch a little cat nap like her furry housemates.

Preparing the Gifts

preparing-the-gifts

Quietly she stowed away in the craft room hoping with all her power that no one would come looking for her. Silently she carefully fold the paper around the boxes and stuffed bags with goodies. She invisoned the look at each persons face in a months time as she worked away in secret. Each floorboard creak sent her into panic mode as she hid the evidence only to feel silly afterward and bring the trinkets, toys, and clothing items back out from their hiding place. She wanted everything to be perfect and keeping the secret hidden proved difficult at times.

Fall Potting

fall-potting

The crisp air fills the air as another season draws closer to its ends. Standing sullenly outside the little shed, she realizes that soon her little plants will be covered in snow and will not survive the long harsh winter. Several minutes pass and she makes the decision to change her clothes before engaging in the task she was now faced with if she wished for her little loves to survive; she mentally prepares what she will need as she makes her way into the house. Slowly she returns to the little shed and sets to work gathering soil and pots; her fall potting has begun.

My Grandmother’s Home

My Grandmother's Home1

My grandmother is a proud woman. She rarely complains or asks for help; even while caring for my ailing grandfather, she never stopped to admit it might be to much for her to handle on her own. After my grandfather was moved into long term care, she slowly transformed their little home to her personal tastes with the majority of his former presence removed. A few pictured adorned their walls of the pair together, albums filled to the brim were strewn about the tiny space. Eventually though the daunting task of cleaning the little home would come about, as my grandmother was moved into assisted living. Her space growing smaller and only a few treasured belonging being able to move with her. Slowly she marked the belongs that she would take and the rest was divided between the family members or sold to provide for her care. My grandmothers home is where memories were made and shared and will forever be part of who I am today.

Perfect Little Cottage

Perfect Little Cottage

Down the beaten path far off in the corner of the little island, nestled amongst the pines a little cottage sits surrounded by wildflowers. No one around to disturb the occupant. Quietly in their home they draw the nature that surrounds them; birds, trees, or flowers, and often the small animals that venture close. They tend to their garden, growing the foods that they need only venturing away from their home if they need to. The little cottage, is perfect for the artist who paints the world around them.
