Painting is an expression of one's feelings. It can take you to another place at another time. Art comes from your heart, mind and soul. I hope you will enjoy reading My Diary of a Painter.

Sweet Dreams

Tonight the sky exploded
into something beautiful.
It is 10:30 PM
and I was drawn outside
and couldn't come back in
just taking in the beauty of the clouds, the moon
and the stars,
against the lighted sky.
I saw shadows, reflections, intensities, shapes
and subtle beauty.
A striking, dramatic sky.
The breeze was cool, no humidity.
Just a wonderful, feel good feeling.
I could have sat in the swing on the porch for hours.
The sounds of night surrounding me.
Lost and founds were all over the place.
The stars and the clouds
were dancing around the moon.
Thank you God for drawing me close to your beauty.
Sweet Dreams.
