My Little Corner of the World

"My Corner of the World", 6x6" Oil on Gessobord

  " Light is the first of painters. There is no object so foul that intense light will not make it beautiful."                  
 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Time for  a coffee break! You deserve it. 
Step right in and have a seat. Welcome to one of the cozy little corners in my world. The big blue hand-me-down stuffed chair is calling you to stop whatever you’re doing, to pause for a moment and relax in quiet mindfulness.

Arlo Guthrie said, "You can't have a light without a dark to stick it in." Can you feel the morning light as it breaks through the slats of wooden blinds to warm your heart right where you sit?  Like a rooster waving sticks of soft yellow pastels, the sun breaks in —without the need of a key—to illuminate this sleepy corner of my family room every sunny morning. I love the play of light on the walls and wood floors, but especially the striped pattern it creates on my red pillow.
Would you care for coffee or tea? It’s moments like this that souls thirst for.

  2. I don't think this was exactly what the challenge called for, but it is a path of light. I hope you enter it also, Helen. Thank you for commenting.
