it seems I have misplaced "Joy".....
can't seem to find her anywhere
I thought I caught a glimpse of her a few times...
but I was mistaken
if you know where she is...can you let me know?

a little girl came into the store the other day
she brought along her cherished baby doll
it was thread bare and missing hair
rough around the edges, but full of her loving care
the girl came and went, but the doll was left behind
wedged in a cubby hole...a little hard to find
when I touched the doll...I felt all the love
this doll must have been pure joy and comfort to that little girl
so glad I was able to contact her and return the doll
the re-connection made me bawl

I hope I can find my Joy soon
determined to keep looking

Abandoned Art...

since joining the art group that Michael Demeng started called "Art Abandonment" on facebook...I have been itching to leave some of my work somewhere.....

what a better place than where I was today (while on vacation at the Oregon Coast)...but BANDON !

now I can say it was ABANDONED in BANDON!

this painting is called "fishing around"
(9 x 12 ; acrylic on water color paper)

if you can find it can keep it :)
