This is sweet... and powerful at the same time. I love the gestures of both the woman and the fox. And the bird and deer looking on. I just watched a very sweet video of a fire department rescuing a fawn. A VERY brave deer-mommy, too! http://www.wimp.com/fawnrescued/And for some reason your post about your sweet pug isn't showing for me, so I couldn't comment. But I DO want to say how I'm thinking of you and hope you're ok. Losing my animals has always been so incredibly intense for me, maybe cause I live alone and they are my family? But, I know it is so for others, too. So, sending you blessings and love from the forest.
Hello Valerianna, Thank you so very much for your comment on my current post:)My sweet pug passed away last Feb., and some kind of glitch has happened when I tried to edit it yesterday and when I republished it appeared as a current post for some. I think that she is sending her sweet spirit to you.Thank you for your gentle condolences:)
I love this very fine and well-composed story-telling drawing! All are living! There is a wonderful sigh and peace in this work. All the creatures feel to be one. The missed tree is included in an eternal blessing. Do you remember the text found by Stille Linde from "Adventures and Trips of little Dott":"Because you should know, that all spirits of water and earth and all animals and plants are under the spell of an enchantment and that they each crave deliverance... All creatures of nature are enchanted and yearn for their liberation. But only a human being who cares about them with a pure and good heart can redeem them."
OH, how strange, yes, I must be receiving some good dog blessings. Glad to have you on the sea voyage today... I love that little sea painting, it had a blessing once when I was in graduate school, a group of Tibetan monks came to do a sand mandala in the museum next to my studio. They visited the graduate students' studios and one of them, a very sweet Buddha like one, stopped at that painting and said "you are a very talented artist". I'll always remember that. The painting now hangs in my bathroom and I see it every day, but maybe I don't really SEE it anymore... Glad you're not in the midst of grief, that;s so not fun!!!!
Yes Dori, I remember.Sometimes I feel as though it is I who is under the spell and I who crave the deliverance that can only come from connecting and revering nature.
Beautiful sketch,as always. Love the way the fox is,so curious looking.
O really, this is right: nature can help us poor humans to find our salvation, great, Ramona! But I think, when I imagine you in the nature, that you are the one who is blessing, really!
Sometimes I feel as though it is I who is under the spell and I who crave the deliverance that can only come from connecting and revering nature.yes...i am without words for this piece, ramona - it's just so, so 'right' in every way...xoxo
When I look at this, I feel like I am slowly becoming the woman in the drawing ... I cannot explain, I become her ... I move to "the inside of her" : feeling, wishing, hoping, loving what she feels wishes hopes and loves in this invocation.
A beautiful piece. It reminds me, for some reason, of the Native American experience. I feel at peace
So beautiful. Looking at it feels very serene, like the whole world breathes as one, just for one second.
Such wonderful comments this drawing has inspired.I'm so happy to be able to share my art in this way. Bless you.
