I have been burning the midnight oil these past days. After finishing my work late one evening, I sat down in the comfy oversize chair in my studio to unwind before bed.
I slowly began to notice there were no sounds coming from anywhere. The house was completely still and peaceful.
This artwork is from my on-going pastel journal. Tiny stars are scattered about the page adding a touch of sparkle to this evening sky...capturing the stillness... helping me remember these moments.
a quiet demeanor settles upon this vastness
a calm from the storm of day to day
in this abiding is where our dreams begin
holding our lives poised and balanced
it is here; all silent hopes are carefully plucked
by a bird feathering its nest of miracles
as the future crests over a sky of wonders
before the world begins anew.
