When Marissa Bridge and I came up with the weekly concept of combining her thirty-six paintings of one orchid’s bloomstalk, with my thoughts on life as I experience it, our first post, by chance, was March 21st, the Spring Equinox. As we near the end, the blossom’s color fades, and outside trees burn bright.
The same as many posts, today I was unsure of what I wanted to say. In trying to come up with something, I realized that thirty-six weeks is a nine month endeavor. The comfort in nearing the close of this commitment is the fact that both Marissa and I, together again, or alone, have new projects coming down the canal.
I cannot thank both you dear Stephanie and Marissa for this amazing series of glorious posts and spectacular paintings that have enriched my life incredibly. The beauty of artists working together to bring a message of life on a higher level is something that humbles me. In this truly awful political climate we have landed in, what an oasis it is to read these beautiful posts over the past months, it makes me wish artists ruled the world vs politicians.
Thank YOU, Dixie. Artists are too busy to rule the world! And some of them, like us, are not ego driven enough to want to be that close to politics. but no mistake, we have opinions…
I’m in agreement with Dixie. What a wonderful world it would be IF artists ruled the world! I have enjoyed this nine month endeavor, Stephanie……….. Thank you and Marissa for this orchid journey.
Hi Sally: Thanks so much for reading this. It does my heart good to know you are out there receiving these offerings. Five more to go.
