There is a restaurant in my neighbourhood where I sometime go for breakfast…it is a huge place, but in the morning it is quiet with just a few people sipping coffee and reading the paper…there is a particular waitress who makes it her business to remember who you are and what you like even if you go there only once a year…she is a treasure…as soon as she sees me walk in she puts on a fresh pot of decaf, and hurries away to the back…within minutes my favourite breakfast is in front of me and yet not a word said except good morning…she reappears to refill my cup with out my having to crane my head to find her…
I sit back, open my current book, put my feet up and bask in the sunshine pouring through the window..good coffee, crisp toast, bacon and eggs…that is pure joy

On my way home recently, I saw a bed of young Cosmos, with only buds not yet opened…I thought of these simple flowers floating on their fragile stems and how appropriate their name was…
I painted them as if floating in the cosmos…the sunny day was glorious…I could not let it go…my desire always is to capture the moment, the feeling, and in this case, that glow of "Pure Joy
"..

I cannot believe that the inscrutable universe turns on an axis of suffering; surely the strange beauty of the world must somewhere rest on pure joy! Louise Bogan

Learning to live in the present moment is part of the path of joy. Sarah Ban Breathnach

    I love how the ends of the petals on the two flowers in the center are highlighted. They really pop out of the piece!

  • Thank you so much Ken…I enjoyed painting these little flowers in a different way..it’s really interesting to portray flowers almost as personalities, with some more dominant than others….
