The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

March 24 You've got to give a little...



You've got to give a little, take a little,
And let your poor heart break a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.

You've got to laugh a little, cry a little,
Until the clouds roll by a little.
That's the story of, that's the glory of love.

Hmmm....so why does that old song come rolling into my thoughts? Hard to say. Today was a good day of laughter, no tears, but a fair amount of give and take with the first pot luck of spring at work this noon. The Five Wings Arts Council (that's us) shares a communal space between offices with female eye doctors and their staff so we had a pot luck get aquainted lunch in the shared space. Great fun and there's a plan afoot to do it monthly.

I spent a couple of hours photographing a Staple's area artist's watercolors and uploading them to the mn.artists website. That was an enjoyable process, too.

Now it's past dark and no one has put the chickens in for the night. Savannah doesn't want to go out alone, so I must finish up and venture out with her. She wants to look for Orion, the constellation, too and I won't deny a 14 year-old that.

She tells me the lyrics are from "Beaches." There were messages and mentions today of southern California, beaches of Lake Michigan, people coming back from Mexico, going to Mexico....maybe my subconscious mind processed it and came up with that connection.
