One day I found this insect on the floor, close to the
dinner table. It looked so life like that I put it on a ledge
to see what would happen.
Then came the waiting. I waited at least half a year (not exaggerating!), before its body started disintegrating.
For me personally it reminds me how last year
was ending. I felt changes would be ahead,
and I have kept waiting
until change will arrive.
Have you had something similar happen?
Something very opposite also happened, dipping into last year, that changes were happening so fast that it felt “too fast.”
Left the church last August where I painted. Hooked up with another church closer by at the end of September. Because the service is half in Hebrew, hubs who has trouble hearing, had a hard time keeping up, so we looked for another church by the end of November.
This a better fit for us, also closer to home. Have painted there the last three weeks, and am on life stream of Natoma Vineyard on Facebook on Sunday now.
Right at the end, you see below, I changed the little boy
on the right, into someone grabbing the press (better
design to have more focus on the main theme).
Oil, 24 x 24, The Wine Press, © St Germain
About finished with this painting, except for a few minor improvements. I titled it The Wine Press. This was how it was done in the old days, By hand, or rather, by feet! Had the sense, that people here have that feeling of beings crushed and smashed by life events. The encouraging result is, that it is crushed into something delightful: “wine.”
Am excited that it turned into a new approach of painting too. Much darker and mysterious.
The people who go here ,are not used to painting as an act of worship, so they are intrigued.
A transformation in my environment
This bend in the river looks wild, almost inhabitable in winter
In summer it looks like this. I made sure it was the same spot! We have only one river that makes this bend, and when we pass there’s only one point for a good drive-by shot. What a transformation!
