where's the sun?




I'm moody.




I know. Not news.




I've been cruising around trying to find artists who paint things that look like home to me. It's cheering me up.




Sharing time:

The leaf painting is by Paul Wolber.

This is his blog: http://pwolberart.blog.com/

He's a professor in Michigan. So....close to Iowa.
The landscape is another one I like. The artist is Ellen Wagener. She's an Iowan. More here: http://www.lucidplanet.com/iwa/ArtistPages/wagenere.htm#stmt
She says this about Iowa, "I think this area is rich. It sheds its skin a minimum of four times a year. Watching the corn grow and beans yellow under the saffron sun is a rigorous pasttime if you are paying attention. "
Amen to that.
