"A weeping willow at the water's edge. I love the look of willows, the sounds they make when a breeze blows through them in summer, the way the low-hanging leaves tickle your face when you walk beneath them. I don't recall ever seeing a weeping willow, except in photos and drawings, until I came to Canada ... and I really didn't get well acquainted with them until I moved to the Monastery situated on the Niagara Parkway. So many memories..."
With these cold, snowy days plus another big snow storm expected this coming Tuesday, I felt this was a nice reflection to share with you.
As for my art work --
I just finished a quick drawing of kitty cats which must mean that I have also been working on another icon! Correct.This drawing of the two very young kittens is called "Catch the Tail"! Any of you who have spent time around cats -- young or old -- know how they love to try to catch their own tails or the tails of other cats in the vicinity.
I love the way the white one is having to look over his little, fat, baby belly in order to see that black, wiggly thing on the floor!
This particular icon -- another in the style I have done previously -- is usually called, in English, "Blessed Mother, Sweet Kissing".
Simply by posting it here, I already see several small corrections I want to make. As always, I would really appreciate any comments or suggestions from my faithful readers.
Wishing you all much joy and many blessings.
