“My soul is awakened"

"Click on photos' to enlarge detail"

I have been taking time to paint soulfully in my corner where paint is always my attention getter.
22" x 15" x 1" on a vintage French hutch door by (me!) Dore L. Callaway

“My soul is awakened,
my spirit is soaring."

This single wild white rose in the company of two buds have been named
"Vie Belle" (Beautiful Life) I am taking some time to paint for myself and allowing my heart to list it to you. Finding this hand painted sign in my peaceful etsy signed artist Dore L. Callaway

L'amour est beaucoup de comme une rose sauvage, belle et calme, mais faisant pour dessiner le sang dans sa défense.

“Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.”

Inspiring, painting how you feel.

Good evening my precious friend.

I seem to remember seeing this GORGEOUS work a couple of days ago....where did I see it.....This is stunning and what is it dearest about the GRAYS and whites that make us happy? I am so enjoying making art. Will it sell? I don't know. But to make it from love, that is what is important from the beginning. How it will end is now a matter of strategy to find who will want it, need it and use it. Be well my friend!!! Anita

It is so soft and ethereal Dore. Lovely. I've always been fond of the wild rose...it was my nickname at one time long ago. I cannot spend anytime on the computer...still recovering a mild concussion.
