The Painting: Second in the summer series of Equine Pieces 2009. I laugh now because I have to resort to acrylic more in the summer as the oils will not cure in our humidity. Takes forever to get them to a point to varnish and mail to the buyer. This was a study in composition using balance and color to pull you from the upper right to the lower left. My circle markings are the same used in the last summer series in 2008 and only used in my summer paintings. Call it a signature if you will.

The Thought: I have a postnote on Ann Marcelyn Caver. Click her name for her website. You will see all the fascinating work of this gifted artist. The woman that wrote me from Canada of Ani's passing sent me a connection today from another blog. PLEASE take the moment to read this blog. Dr. Dwags Blawg. I believe it hurt even more to find out more of the details of Ani's death.

My blog thought is short today as we begin our three weeks of vacation. No at the moment we are not going anywhere but we have a bathroom ripped out we are replacing and changes coming to our family.

I will reflect a moment on life and the living. Make it count today. Do not waste this day or the moments you have to fill the life of someone that is empty. There is so much suffering and pain in our immediate world right with in five miles of where you live. We do not have to think of another country far away with battles, wars and hunger; it is right here in your backyard.

Depression rips away at the core soul of someone you love. Hunger for human touch and love with the knowledge that anyone cares would change a life. Wars and battles wage on in our own heads and in those minds of those we love. You cannot go fight in Iraq or Afghanistan, but you can fight right here at home.

We never know when we will be called home to Him or when someone we love will leave this earth.

Reach out to someone today.
