#dailygratitude - stop


“Take in the view.”

“STOP and look.”

The world is telling me.

The sky so blue.

The shadows deep.

Along the roadway home.

“See my beauty?”

“See my grace?”

“Be mindful of right now.”

Oh so busy

With our lives.

Sometimes we do not see.

Shadows. Colors.

Shapes and rhythm.

The Artist paints the lines.

“Royal Oaks at Highland”

Oil on canvas



The backstory:

Created “en plein air” this piece was one of a series derived from scenes of Duarte California, my hometown for many years. The quiet backroads were a welcomed relief after a long day of busy streets and freeways. Beside the bike path, old oak trees lined the road. The stop sign begged for me to stop and paint. Finally one day, I listened.
