Drawing Challenge: Grass

April 10, 2015

Because little things are practice for big things, I decided to roll around in the grass at the house next door, (which is about to be torn down), and count the clouds! To me, little things and baby steps are key. They are a form of reassurance.

    Where are the dandelions of yesteryear? There’s a poem in there somewhere.

      Nice! Robert was just asking me what happened to me writing a poem for each Sunday. Might start that up again. 😀

      Miss you Joanne. Miss seeing the last year garden and seeing how it’s coming along. Hurry and finish your studies so you can write a blog again!!! Lol. Hope all is going well in your corner of the world. Sending you great big hugs and hoping that maybe this year I’ll get over to Wales. 😀

    I love how you show the chaotic messy way grass tumbles its way towards the light – suits my mood these days 🙂 X

    Wish I’d been there to view the grassy view with you. It’s such a treat to lie on the spring grass. Delicate isn’t often a word used for grass but that’s the word that springs to mine from you painting. Lovely, Veronica. Thanks for hosting again. xo C

    Your rolling around in the grass gave a wonderful result! Thank you for hosting.

    Rolling in the grass, dear Veronica, is fine!
    Your drawing is precious as a etching, great.
    Thank you for hosting, again, Dear. Grass has brought me back to memory lane… and cheered me up (’cause my sister has left Hamburg on Friday I felt sorrow of leave-taking).

    xo Ariane.
