the power of teal


 
Celebrating the athleticism and sublime grace, artistry, strength, and courage of Simone Biles who reigned supreme at the US Gymnastics Championships last weekend.
 

The teal leotard she wore was to honour the victims of sexual assault, being a survivor herself.

“The colour is for the survivors. I stand with all of them…”  Simone Biles

A true hero and inspiration for our times.

a bouquet for heroes


 
On World Humanitarian Day this bouquet from today’s afternoon in the studio is to pay tribute to all those who risk their lives around the world every day to serve those suffering and in need. They are all heroes.
 


 

 

with special thanks to C & V for the beautiful bouquet

afternoon at the ballet

 

Yesterday afternoon the ballet came to the studio. Inspired after watching the sublime Tiler Peck, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, in Ballet 422 on Netflix. Watch this great ballet documentary and be inspired by her too.

Oh the joy of spending time in the studio with my granddaughter who teaches me so much.
The painting is all hers.

Croatia’s overtime goal brought tears to supporters on both sides.
England, you did us all proud. It’s been quite a ride.
Now on to Sunday’s final.

a day of celebration and remembrance

 
On a day of celebration of the rescue of the Thai boy’s soccer team and their coach this little watercolor sketch of France’s only goal against Belgium today is dedicated to the memory of Samarn Kunan, the Thai navy Seal who lost his life, together with thanks to the brave and dedicated international team that saved them all.
