erika.. beautiful beautiful work, your words fall soft as rain on my heart
The words are an important part of this work, so it makes me glad they’re soft as rain for you, my friend. I appreciate your kind comment very much xx
The words and the image….I feel you have made a dream weaver from some place only you can touch….there is something about the colours here….I hope this will explain… I look and feel a warm sweetness that is not like a sugar sweet but sweet like when one is thirsty and drops of rain have found your tongue …. XXXX
You’ve described this so gently and beautifully KarenSue… yes, I feel like I’ve found a healing through this work, and the drops of rain have found my tongue in a way… I can’t thank you enough for such kind support from you KareSue. Thank you always XXXX
This is a lovely piece of work Erika – the words compliment the painting beautifully and there was a feast here for the feelings. Not only for the eyes. i am so glad you can sing about letting the sadness go, its often a mater of allowing it to go i sometimes think, the bruised anchor has fallen and your joy from this is communicated in a truly inspirational way, now you can ‘follow the clouds’ watching them slowly give way to the radiant sunshine of truth,once again my dear grandaughter has brought a sing to grandfather’s geart. Bless youx
oh… what a beautiful comment from you George…You leave me with nothing to say except thank you, for your kindness and understanding, dear grandfather xx
