waiting for Obama

I am over the moon enchanted and delighted that Barack Obama will be officially the leader of the USA soon..I believe this is the first election that I have witnessed in my lifetime that thrilled me to no end..and kept me smiling for days. despite climate of gloom and naysayers and financial fear..I do feel optomistic .

deep dark

November has me feeling grey,dark,a little morose..gloomy.As the time dictates ..I am more on the inside looking out..dark in morning..dark at night.It is snowing outside in this ink black night ..but it lands and disappears into the soggy soil. I find myself thinking about the brightness of snow to come-and wishing it's arrival. My art is reflecting this sombre tone,and I rather like it..It's not sweet..or even hopeful ..it doesn't pretend to please..even a little (except me of course)
