Milestones and Moons

"Moon Discs"
Acrylic on canvas 30" x 40"

Life has been very full recently...of immediate and extended family matters and milestones, short trips here and there, and of course, work.  Producing art and blogging have temporarily taken a back seat, although I continue to visit others' blogs, shops and flickr sites regularly, always eager to be inspired by the creativity and beauty displayed there.  

Our yard is ablaze with rugosa roses and the air is heavy with their lovely scent.   A grown chicken, raised by our daughter while away at college, temporarily resided in our yard.....a first for me.  And yes, within a day, my husband and I were attached to it and talking to it as though it were our "beloved" beagle, Harley

I recently had photos taken of some of my paintings. Some of the resulting images are closer approximations to the works than what I had previously been able to capture, so I have been uploading a few of them to my flickr site.  The above painting was done a few years ago, but I had not previously posted it anywhere. I wasn't thinking of moons when I painted it, but "Moon Discs" seems to fit.  ( And 'discs' rather than 'disks' because I think the roundish "c" looks better than the sharp "k" in the word, especially when it pertains to moons. )

I hope you are having a wonderful week.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for the work you are producing!

hi Gloria...i enjoyed reading your preference of disc with a C and not a K. It reminded me of Anne Shirley (of Green Gables) who preferred Katherine with a K rather than a C. :-)

Love your 'moon discs' Gloria-The title jsut adds to the mystery ot the artwork-
It soulds like lots of fun , having a chicken in the yard. It is something I have always longed for but please do not tell my husband because he is definitely not as friendly to chicken as yours!!
