Art and Positive Thinking

Welcome to my Renee Loves Art blog!

My focus is exploring, creating and reflecting upon the positives of life and connecting them to my art whether it be photography, pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, mixed media, digital media or any other possible media I dive into!

Positively Grassy

This is my 300th post!  I can't believe I have had so much to say and show.  Like grass, I have gone through a lot of seasonal changes in my photography and my art.  I started off very green and now I am a bit more seasoned and golden, but I am ever changing.

Veronica Roth has challenged us to create a post dedicated to grass.  My original plan was to create a painting, but I was working on another painting and was determined to get it done, so I ran out of time.  Instead I am going to post photographs of grass.

I have been doing daily walks with two wonderful ladies, Valerie and Michelle.  We have been sharing a lot of good memories from our childhood, mourning the loss of our parents, and  have had a lot of philosophical discussions.

We have shared photography tips, and are appreciating nature together.

We  have walked along many grassy pathways.

We have had a lot of laughs.  Along the way, our children, spouses and friends have joined us, but the three of us are the core of our walking group, and we discovering we have a lot in common.

Valeria and Michelle have been right under my nose all of these years, just like the grass that surrounds the hills, the cliffs, the animals, homes, the trees, the river, the streams, and the pathways.

Like grass in the wind, we have been bending and swaying to work around our schedules to make sure we are getting exercise and having a good time too.

Like this lone tree in the prairie surrounded by grass, I feel surrounded friendship.

Like a good friend, grass is always there,  supporting and complimenting, protecting, sometimes taken for granted,  but always there.

Thanks for the challenge Veronica Roth !
