dc maria (finished version, i think)

ok, Maria... 
if you drive around in belgium you'll come across many small catholic chapels,
many of them dedicated to a most famous Maria.
each and every chapel with it's own inscription;
Maria (our lady) of the roses
                                                                                      of the dry tree
                                                                                      of  the white branch
                                                                                      of the seven sorrows
                                                                                      of the secret garden
                                                                                      of the cherry tree
                                                                                      of the hill , etc.
                      to me they sound fairy-tale like  and i wonder.... and think up stories, i see pictures.

                    a few weeks ago, sitting in the car, passing another number of chapels i was wondering 
                    would there also be somewhere 'our lady of the owls' and in a flash  the above image
                    was born in my mind.
                   i had already started painting it when dear Patrice came up with this week's theme,
                  well, here she is Maria (of the owls).

                     this Maria came also to my mind

                    thanks for your patience :)   x

dc health

i was thinking sunflowers look so healthy, strong,
full of life, reaching for the sun, swaying in the wind, their beauty makes me happy.
when we are in good health we are like flowers.

we offer flowers to people who are ill,  flowers lift the spirit,
a lifted spirit has a positive effect on the entire body.
when we are in good health we are open,
when we are ill we live like in some kind of cocoon,
we make a strange kind of journey,
 we depend on healthy people who care for us....

just some thoughts when i read about dear  Ariane's theme of the week,
please have a look at her beautiful blog ,
there you'll find more reflections on health.

for you out there who are not feeling well i offer you some sunflowers,
for the ones in good health please enjoy them too

have a fine weekend
