    Thanks for sharing the photos of the marble lamb, they are wonderful, I especially like the last one.

    Love your journal page too, and is that an Australian stamp I see?

    hi bridgette, that is 'miniature pony', by jesse reno. in my mind he's 'little pony', though! yeah, i love him too... so nice to see you here -- i'm one of the many thousands who adore your art! beautiful new year to you!

    hi trish, thank you so much! and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!

    thank you, i love black and white... and thanks for the feedback about posting without many words. i appreciate that.

    hi carmen, oh, please nab these lamb images if you can use them! and thank you! a bright and beautiful new year to you, too...

  9. I love being able to share in your quiet time... your cozy spot by your chair... the wall in your art room... your fathers sweet smile. And the marble lamb, where did you find that!!?
    Your new art/journal pages is wonderful. It makes me think that I need to really look inward and get ready for next year! Roxanne

  10. Hi Lynne,
    I love your images and colors fading so subtly into your other colors in your flowers and faces...
    I thought that 'mini pony' might be a Jesse Reno :-)
    I saw Roxanne today and she didn't know what to think about the art group anymore, and I told her that I really love the time we spend sharing together! I've invited three more women to our January group, weather permitting. Margie is planning on having it at her home as far as I know. I'll let you know (when)after I talk to her.


  11. I love the lamb, is it from a cemetery?

  12. I shouldn't be too loud in this quiet corner of blogland, but BAM! - your header is just fabulous! that wonderful grass lady/woman?, can't remember, peeking out when the page opened - love it! - you are a constant inspiration Lynne - thanks so much for your friendship...

  13. hey roxanne! i found that lamb in a cemetery in chico... it's the same cemetery that has the beautiful angel i've shown before. it's on mangrove, near csu, if you go there.

    thank you, anna! i've already written you, so i'll just say how nice it is to see you here... xxoo

    yeah, grrl, from a cemetery, on a child's grave.

    jeane, don't even *think* about being quiet here unless you feel quiet! inspiration? you're one of my main sources... xo

  14. Your work and blog are both very beautiful!

  15. "Love is the way" &
    I too am "still feeling quiet" & isn't it nice to feel and be quiet and not have to go running for something more... enjoying the "light" by the chair. True moments. Right here. Thanks for pulling me out of judgement.

    Peace dwells.
    Is it sain to wish Happy New Year to someone somewhat timeless?

    (I;ll be insain: ha! Happy New Year. Thanks for you!

  16. ... am being told, if you can't spell insane, you can't go insane...
    ha ha.

  17. A feeling of calm and serenity is surrounding me whilst reading this post. Just what I need. Perhaps it's the lull before the storm....of frenzied art creating. I have that feeling too. A quiet brewing of ideas. I enjoyed looking at the art on your studio wall.

  18. love really is the way, isn't it? :) I enjoyed all the pictures that you shared & feel a quiet happiness settling over me.

  19. thank you smadar... that is a great compliment coming from you...

    dear mansuetude, i feel you are one of sainest (and sanest : ) people i've ever met... and here we are in time and space wishing one another a happy new year!

    i thought of you last night when i read these words, quoted in a book i'm reading. theseus, in 'midsummer night's dream', is speaking...

    The poet's eye, in fine frenzy rolling,
    Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
    And as imagination bodies forth
    The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
    Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
    A local habitation and a name.

    that's what you do, my friend...

    hi robyn, yes, i think that's what it is. a gestation period... i know you'll amaze me with the results of these days of brewing!

    i'm smiling here, 3rdeyemuse, at the thought of quiet happiness settling over you/us. yeah, love is the way. : )

  20. Happy belated holiday quietness to you, Lynne!

    I'd love to see more of your art collection sometime...or any of your collections, actually!

  24. Yes, (humble me, yes) and you stand beside me, knowing...
    time is not ticking, but the heart, the heart..

    Shakespeare was indeed connected like a thread of Brilliance to Wisdom and Knowledge and All while tethered by a "mortal coil" to our earth--to teach us. I love his work...

    Tbank you ... to Brilliance. To Life... ripple and ride it!
