Delia's Pick

On the side bar of this page, I rotate some of Bill's new paintings. (When I remember...) Delia adopted Bill as her own four years ago, and she hangs out in the studio with him. Although, as I write, she is curled up with Sam I Am on the couch under a fleecy blanket. Bill is reading the paper downstairs.

Solitary Tree. acrylic on canvas. 36 x 36
do click to enlarge, you won't be disappointed!
Anyway, Bill emailed me an image of a new painting for the sidebar, and I thought it deserved posting on the main blog. It is just stunning. He painted it when Maria died, and though I'm not sure he would make the connection, I see her in the red sky. I see us in the strong mourning tree.
Or maybe I just see a beautiful painting that I proudly want to share with my dear readers.
I love it. (You can see lots more of Bill's recent paintings on his blog: HERE.)
Now, back to cleaning and decorating the house and getting ready for our FUN guests! Linda arrives tomorrow!!!)

    Whatever the inspiration & whatever interpretation you put on it, it is a lovely painting. Will you be keeping it?

    Enjoy your visitors for whilst they, too, will miss Maria, I'm sure you will all share happy memories of her during their time with you.

    Best wishes,


  2. Patience, please visit my blog and see if you have ever heard of what is going on with my boxer Annie.

    Thank you

  3. How lucky for you both to have talented people as a mate!

  6. That is a beautiful painting. It well deserves a place on the main blog.
    How nice to have a girlfriends day. We never seem to have enough of those nowadays. Enjoy your time together.

  7. There is a beautiful verse called "Do not stand at my grave and weep" which I was reminded of when you refered to seeing Maria in the sky of the painting. Very sad but so true and you would see her in such a beautiful painting.

  8. Love LOve LOVE the painting, and that the artist is in residence with the waggle (and you, Patience)!

    Goober love & smooches,
