Travel Memories: Hawaii- Black Sand Beach

On the BIG Island-
Lava stole the land.
The ocean wore it down.
Now it's blackened sand.
I placed on the dark canvas.
A Plumeria, 'heart', and leis.

Take me back.

Still snowing in NE

New England.
Snowing again.
Not just snow, but SNOW.
Big flakes;
small flakes.

Trees disappear into the white.

Escape from the snow.
In reality-
or in your mind.
Keep it shining.

Swirling snow.
Melts on the window.
Waiting, watching.
Will we take off?
Should we?
Put trust in the man on the runway?
Take me away.

[Unbeknownst to me, I did this simultaneously with the Hudson River crash. It was happening as I was painting it. Yikes. The pilot could be trusted as we saw.]
Pastel, 5x7, matted, $100.

Making Raviolis

As kids they were the treat of treats.
When all the tables in the kitchen and dining room were covered with puffy little pockets we knew something special was happening. We worked the forks while Mom and our aunts made them light as a feather; cheesy and delicious.
My sister and I, determined, made them for Christmas. They were little bullets-- but tasted good. We'll keep practicing until we make feathers like Mama mia.

8" x 10" embellished Giclee print, $60.

or original painting, $150.
