In this life it is rare to find such a thing as a peaceful place, a place where contentment rather than happiness holds sway. Happy is a high emotion and can rarely be sustained for more than a few hours and as such is over rated. Contentment is the greater thing, for it is quieter and more constant a companion when it arrives.
Of late I have been at peace while painting and find myself content to live each moment as it occurs. And that is why I have been absent from blogger. For the hustle and bustle of posting, replying and commenting would steal time from me, time that I do not wish to part with as of yet.
Lost with the miniature, using the brush to tease out the character that lies within the sculpt is a fine thing indeed. This is a close-up of just one of the pieces I have completed in the last week. And I am not ready to post the figure just yet. Next week, perhaps.
Color aplenty remains in my gardens and while there are still pictures like this to take, I'll be there to take them. I enjoy my time on blogger but right now, I'm enjoying my real life more.
I may post next week as I have completed figures and a product review to do. If my days remain as pleasant as they are right now, I won't be in next week. But I'll be back, because nothing lasts forever.
