Art Matters/#SoCS

When I saw the SoCS JusJoJan prompt for today I was nearly giddy with excitement. Finally something easy. But, wait, what kind of art to post about.

You see, I am kind of an art ADHD, in that I am not committed to one thing. I am sort of an artsy Jane-of-All-Trades and perhaps Master-of-None. I love creating but am constantly moving from project to project. It isn’t that I get bored. I just feel maybe I should move on or that time is wasting. I haven’t figured out yet what this semi-neurosis stems from but will keep you posted should I work it out. Maybe it will come to me in a dream. Many of my dilemmas are worked out during dreams.

Meanwhile, what to choose…so difficult! Since I am currently working as feverishly as I can on my Dawn of the Dream novel I think I’ll post a snippet. And maybe a photo or two of projects. I hope you enjoy them.

No matter what, I hope you find your own artistic outlet. Don’t even try to say it to me. Everyone has an artistic vein. It just takes something special to pull it out of us sometimes. Just ask anyone who has done a Cork and Canvas class. 😉

Okay, from the journals of my mind wanderings which will hopefully cohese into a novel. Someday….

from Dawn of the Dream…

Inside the Sorceress’s hut, the Hunter and Ella were not thinking of sleep. It was awkward, so long since either had known passion; and Ella tentatively worked at conversation. “Eolas, do you think Saol is comfortable in the cave, without..” Eolas put his finger to her lips and pulled her close to him.

“There is no need to worry about Saol. She is well cared for. Now, there is only us and we have so little time.” The Hunter took a deep breath, as though inflating his courage. The smell of lavender wafted across the room like a breeze. In times past this would have given him pause for sorrow; but in that moment, he felt comforted. It was as though Eagna was reassuring him.

‘Live, my love. Show our daughter what love can be.’

Eolas wasn’t sure exactly what the journey would bring; but he knew in that moment, for the first time since his world crumbled, he felt an almost overwhelming desire to love again. Ella pulled his hand from her mouth and slid it down to her breast. “I know we have both been here before, but I feel so…” Eolas silenced her again, but this time with his lips. There were no more words as they recalled the fire and desire of physical union, making the most of the moments they had to share. Neither worried for the lost sleep or when the sun would rise-only that it rose on them lying together…..

To be continued..

A bit of sizzle for your Saturday. And hop over to the bar. Our buddy Dan is back on his feet and having a beer!

Here are a few more of my happy distractions…

Just for Fun

Hi all! I hope everyone in the states enjoyed a #Free72. That’s a #Free48 plus! We just hung around the house, tackled some previously avoided projects and had a chill weekend. We are keeping an eye on that storm though. Lots of family and friends spread throughout that corridor.

I did some organizing, we had one shopping spree and I got some writing done (yay!) and also a few creative things as well. Here are just a few highlights. I downloaded a new fun art app called PicsArt. I’m hoping to get better with it. I love it, though.

And looking mighty sultry, I might add…

we got a new toy! 👏🏻We actually fell in love with the coffee first. Then came the machine, once it went on sale. This is really a nice espresso machine, I have to say.

 

 

Annnnd….we have a new sentry in the front yard. Found her there, just hanging around.

Around Dusk/#SoCs

Roundup went well. Nothin’ left but the numbing. Wish there was someone soft and sweet to keep me company, to erase the red dirt and sweaty leather from my senses. Whiskey, Ole girl, let’s dance the night away.

“How much longer, Mother? I want to see Grandfather. It’s so cold here!”

”Get back inside and wrap yourself in a blanket. Tomorrow, child. Perhaps tomorrow we find them. I’ll make a fire to warm you, but you must stay off the ground!”

This post inspired by Linda Hill’s SoCS prompt, ‘round’. For details and more great posts, visit Linda’s site. These images were taken at the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, GA

Happy #Free48 everyone!
