shattered faerie tale...






my latest paintings......

inspired by the news of the last week...

which started with something so beautiful.

a faerie tale wedding.

of a beautiful prince and a handsome princess.

in an exquisite church, decked out like an english garden.

we got swept away with it all.

we felt the love and the hope and the dreams of it all.

we escaped.

at least for just a little a while.....

mm

just to be yanked back into reality

with the killing of a hunted terrorist.

Ah, but G.K. Chesterton wrote, "Fairy tales are MORE THAN TRUE, not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that DRAGONS CAN BE BEATEN."

No smart comments, no sarcasm or jokes this time dear girl.
An example of why I and my children are so devoted to the arts; because artists leave a part of their heart, sometimes a wisp of their soul behind in their work.

much love,

Dearest Erin, thank you for visiting me yesterday, and I wish YOU a most blessed Mother's day today. I don't recall if you are a mother, or if you have your mum with you, but celebrate LIFE today my friend, for it is from HER, that special woman, from whom we receive the chance to walk this earth and make a difference.
