I Can Hear It. !




I came across this little painting while looking for something else. Isn't that always the way? You can see by the date it was eighteen years ago. Just a little 8x10  and of course I knew nothing about calligraphy or the quote  would have been in better handwriting.. no matter,  the saying still stands.

  1. Nice painting Barbra, and wonderful quote! The world will never do that of course so we must find our own little island, our quiet place for solitude and reflection.

  4. Ah Joan, such a lovely piece! I'm with you on the quiet, though I have to confess that hearing my own heartbeat tends to disturb me, rather like having that pulsing in your ears feeling. LOLOL But I do share the sentiments nonetheless. How are you feeling these days? Hoping you are raring to go!

  9. The last time I heard my own heartbeat I ended up in hospital, lol! (nothing serious at all - just a one off incident, probably caused by too much coffee ;0))
    I like the handwriting just as it is and the painting is so sweet. Fancy handwriting might even have been a little distracting. It's a lovely find and I'm glad you shared it with us :0)
