Day Two: The Grapefruit Mural, Clearwater, Florida: Adding Layers of Paint

Second day at the two-panel Grapefruit Mural. No refinement as yet; just applied some bright colors. At least they're pretty blobs now. :) I'll be back at it tomorrow!

Close-up of applying a second layer. I am primarily left-handed, but when it comes to painting I am ambidextrous.

Over the next couple of days I will be refining the shapes while adding more layers. Thanks for your interest!

Birth of a Renaissance Master: Michelangelo – March 6th, 1475

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was born on the 6th of March in 1475. In my opinion he is the epitome of the High Renaissance.

“David”. Created between 1501 and 1504 from Carrara marble. Currently located in the Accademia di Belle Arti Firenze.

Thank you, sir, for your endless inspiration and contribution to our culture. You are missed but could never be forgotten.

My Heart and the Last Light of Day

There’s something magical about watching the sun calmly drift across a room.

After arriving home, I’d placed my earrings on a nearby table and burrowed under a soft blanket on the couch. While the sun continued its gentle march and evening slowly consumed the last light of day, it was by chance I looked down at this moment: when my heart danced to life.

Life truly is beautiful, isn’t it?

To My Friends and Loved Ones on Valentine's Day

Today I hope we all take an extra moment and let the people we care about know how truly important they are to us; how they brighten our days and enrich our lives; how they make this journey called life so very worthwhile.

I’m wishing you all a wonderful day of love, admiration and respect, as each of you is important to me. :)

Love,

Ana
