"Every Friday, the Little Bliss List provides a chance for us to celebrate the little things that brought us hope and happiness this week. I do believe when we focus on the sweet stuff of life, the sweet stuff multiplies. And by sharing those small gifts in our lives, we help others notice the gifts in theirs. From Liv Lane’s blog at http://blog.livlane.com/2012/03/the-little-bliss-list-rock-on/
I like to follow Liv Lane's Friday Bliss blog... so when I saw her "Life Rocks" posting today, I wanted to share an experience about one of my recent paintings and a blissful little experience I had this week out in the Florida Keys!
Last summer a fellow craftsman gave me a rock....the type that he and his wife use in their jewelry craft. Like the ones in Liv's photo. It was a small river rock with white lines running through it. I really liked it and used it as the basis for a watercolor painting. I wrote about this in a blog post last fall. It has since become one of my favorite paintings.
So when I took a little break from the craft shows this week and drove down to Marathon, Florida to hang out for a few days with an old college buddy I brought him one of my "Rock and Leaf" trivets as a house warming gift. Actually it was a boat-warming gift. Because my friend lives on a houseboat.
We were in a folk singing group in the '60's, went through a hippie and Captain America phase and rode motorcycles together in Europe in the '70's. We definitely had some "bliss" back in those days too. But catching mackerel and blue fish 4 miles out in the gulf this week made us feel like real rock stars once again! Now thats some really "sweet stuff". Life Rocks!
This page is where I put stuff that doesn't fit elsewhere.... news, photos, an occassional idea, work in process, etc.
