  2. I've always thought of you as one of those people who know secret things about the woods and the creek and trees and fairy places.

  5. Quote and composition are so perfect together. That's a very cool way to inspire your own inner secrets, Lynne.
    Thanks for the Daniel Smith tip. Using the watercolor ground could be a whole lot of fun.

  6. Dear friend, where do I begin????? That blue, that yellow, that FACE, that brilliant Rilke quote. Each alone is enough to make me love this post. But together! They take my breath away (in a very, very good way!!!) and are the perfect beginning to my day. Fabulous!

    I'm zooming over to Daniel Smith now. Thanks for the tip!

  9. I have a nice collection of Daniel Smith watercolors and I can vouch for the fact that they are unlike any other watercolors, jewel tones, deep warms, brights. Quite sumptuous and the only issue is you will want too many!

  12. oh Lynne, I love this piece.
    and I love this quote.... makes perfect sense to me, as if there is any sense to secret things and magic.

  13. I feel a departure into the deep here, the cloudy world of mystery. I am with baby here. I see the delicious comfort of brilliantly coloured blankey (we all need cheering sometime) and feel the sustenance from her bottle (ah to be nourished by the mystery of secret things!)

    I have always felt this way. Thank you to Rilke for saying it out loud and you for rebroadcasting it!

  14. Beautiful quote and lovely fragments to go with it. Thanks for sharing the Daniel Smith offer. They are my favorite watercolors, so I ran over to get the sample sheet.

  15. What comes to mind is "There are fairies at the bottom of the garden" when looking at the painting and Rilke's words. Love it infinitely!
    I'm going to try casein next.

  19. Good find! Thanks to Theresa that I am here. Looking forward to seeing and hearing more. I do a pretty good line in doodle faces that I have always fancied exploring. Book painting could be the way. Do you draw with you non dominant hand cos that's just the way you have always drawn or as a way to by pass the left brain?
