Unending Circle of Life

 


Featured image: Everything Comes Full Circle

I love this time of year for many reasons.  One reason, and not the only one,  I get only unusual birds that don’t hang around land follow the open ice lines.  You have to be on the lookout for them or you might miss them. This morning, I saw a pair of Mergansers playing in the water. And then there was a bird I have not seen on the lake before, totally white sides with black head and other black markings. Turns out that one was a Merganser also. 

I’m glad to have these exciting things happen in the lake this time of year. I am always grateful for the approaching spring and the renewal of all things including myself. My heart sings with this renewal and it is impossible not to enjoy this glorious morning. Earth is regenerating and earthly forces are giving life to all things in the unending circle of life.

Soaring Travelers

 


Featured image: Journey of a Blackbird

Soaring travelers
above swaying pines
their mystic way
leaving no trail,
traceless, try to find where
the wide spreading black wings
have touched
the wind.

I'm Honored to Receive 3rd Place Award for Ms. Pileated

 



Featured image: Ms Pileated

I am thrilled to announce that my work, Ms. Pileated, has been awarded the 3rd place in the Nature Homage exhibition! Being recognized among such talented artists is truly an honor.

Statement from Juror Tonya Hopson: “This piece blew me away the minute I walked into it; I said to myself, oh my goodness. Pileated means large red-capped woodpecker. When you look at this media piece, you will notice that not all parts of it are exact, especially when you look at it and see all the little things she has done in there. With all her splashes and splatters, she has done a lot in there. But it is just a beautiful media piece. Blew me away.”

The Nature Homage exhibition featured original and unique 2D and 3D artworks that pay tribute to animals and insects. With 396 submissions from 34 states, having 57 works selected for this exhibition makes this achievement even more special.

She Ran to the Hilltop

 


Featured image: From the Sky

She ran to the hilltop,

Ribbons of wind tugged at her hair

And reached for the blue blue sky

She knew her blood was more like

The earth than anything else

And she let moments like this

fill her up and lets moments 

like this love her, fill her.
