Raining Sunlight

"Raining Sunlight", pastel, 24x18"
Yesterday was January 10th and it was raining and thundering here in VT! As I finished this painting I was thinking about the phrase "When it rains, it pours." Life seems like that sometimes, but then the sun come out!

This is another painting for the 30 in 30 Challenge. I have done six paintings, which is not too bad. I'm going to try to pick up the pace!

Make Grace Happen

"Ripe Tomato in Blue Gingham", pastel, 7x5

"Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. 

Bradley Whitford

This quote really speaks to me today. Circumstances are difficult in my life right now, but sitting still is not an option! This is the next in my series of vegetables and gingham. The blue just cheers me up!
