    Lovely poem, lovely paintings Janet. . Thank you. Seems to me since you’re both right and we do always come back to ourselves we should do our damndest to make our return a happy one.

    Fantastic post, Janet. That first painting is absolutely stunning, it really drew me in–the angle of her face, the boldness in the colors, the outline in her features. And such a beautiful poem~~
