Thank you again for all your kindness and understanding!! This is a painting that I have been saving for a special time because my little girl inside likes it so much – especially the name!! So I am trying a different tactic to get warm here … to me this is a summer painting … long lazy summer days … so maybe this will warm things up!!
Sky Blue Pink, Digital Â© Diane Clancy
As a child, I always loved the name of “sky blue pink” – I was never sure what color that is. I still think about this … (ok, so I am pretty young at heart, immature, whatever you want to call it) .. often when I see the dusk sky, as the sun starts to go down, there is a certain look – the sky is still blue but the horizon is deeply streaked with gorgeous pinks … lifting their fingers up into the sky and there is pink streaked across the clouds …. I go “sky blue pink.”
I have no idea if there is a real rationale or meaning to this phrase, but I heard it as a child and it stuck. And that kind of sky looks like the color to me (I assume it is a color). And when I saw this painting emerge … Yes!! Sky Blue Pink jumped right out!!
I slept last night for 12 hours … so hopefully will feel more rested … also I agree Obama’s wife opened mouth and put in foot … hopefully that will not hurt him too much. I think we have all said things that didn’t come out the way we meant them … and I know that was one of the ways. Who would bother to run for President of the US or support a spouse to do so without loving this country? It is way too much hassle unless you are passionate about this country!! I have a friend who went to Africa recently (lucky duck) and he said that each village that he entered – where there was no phone or TV – what people wanted was news of Obama. So even in small villages across Afrrica, people are feeling a great surge of hope this this candidacy … pretty amazing and awesome to me!!
And some news of some help. I found out one of the women downstairs was chopping on the ice the other day to help me get the car out, and a neighbor across the street came over and helped a bit. I found this out last night. So between your wonderful support and their help, I don’t feel quite as alone with the car … thank you!! And thank you for all your understanding about being behind!!
