Last night I was drawing my small deep blue copy of the dark and moody Van Gogh still life of potatoes (above).  And that is a great night meditation, let me tell you, those deep shadows and the humble potatoes, the basket-like-a-bird’s-nest.  And then this morning the sun rises and I have new yellow still life objects just discovered at the second-hand store!

Day and night wonders.

    with us her inner soul, thank you dear Aletha for inspiring us

    thank you, Victor, for this very kind, encouraging comment

  2. I do love me a sack of potatoes and that drawing is as good as the real thing – wonderful Aletha 🙂

    they come from inside the earth and remind us of our coming from earth also, part of what Van Gogh realizes in his painting
