Happy Feast of the Sacred Heart

IMG_1630Interesting how this image has been interpreted in such artsy ways. The devotion must always have been a favorite of artistes. A hundred years ago  tributes to the Sacred Heart were in many homes, I was recently made aware of while reading Dubliners. The image was displayed in honor somewhere near the front door. I made this version  four years ago in thanksgiving, I guess, since I met my husband on this Feast. We were both well on our way to becoming painful cases in my opinion. But that all ended on that providential noon in June on the eve of June 16th no less.

This seeing connections everywhere is making me wonder if I’m either crazy or just paying attention more.

Chipmonk

This is the first animal drawing for the nature journal! I was going to wait till it was one year of just plant drawings but then I was tempted by the sparrows. And then squirrels.The sparrows are tricky and shy, so they may take a little time to finish. I like to draw things from life but it may be a good idea to snap some pictures just in case, like I did with this chipmonk.
