Hollyhocks and Healing



I did sit and paint a bit these past few days... Its the fact that I painted, not the subject or the quality of the painting. That wasn't so important right now... just that I did it.  
   I can't thank all of you enough for your  emails, comments and understanding, your words that touched my heart and  how much it has meant to me..
  Yes, Mary Louise was a cat, but she was my cat. Some may not understand how your heart can hurt from losing a little cat, but each one of you did ...  BJ

  1. Oh BJ! I think this is just spectacular and oh so very beautiful! Sometimes it just helps so much to seek refuge in painting, taking yourself out of things for a bit, doesn't it? I know it isn't totally healing but it helps. Sending you hugs, sweetie, and so glad you are feeling physically better too.

  2. BJ your hollyhocks are so lovely - sometimes it helps when we create to come closer to healing - Mary Louise was never just a cat - she was so loved by you and that makes her very special and she could never just be a cat. Take Care My Friend xo xo Debbie

  3. Painting is such a therapy isn't it? I understand how it feels - I felt such pain when we lost Codi. Keep on painting Barbra. This one is gorgeous xx
