Sketching and Thoughts-with Cecelia Rappaport

One day I was sketching to the sound of the surf rolling in and watching many of the pebbles and rocks dislodge from the sand and roll back out with the surf. It was as if they came alive and were dancing out to sea.

 It reminded me of the love I have for my husband of 30 years.  We have made many great changes together and are now reaping the benefits of many successes that we can continue enjoying with each new day.  Life is fun and we can play together for many more years to come.

 My simple attempt at a Haiku:

 Two rocks buried deep
 Worked loose, freed by
     rolling surf
 Happy, chance to play 


Do you See What I see? with Cecelia Rappaport

Flipping through my sketch book, I found this doodle that I had created one afternoon while vacationing in the Caribbean.
I think my subconscious was really tuning in to my island surroundings.
However, I am not always the best at communicating which reminded me of one of R.D.Laing (Knots) quotes:

"Jack can see he sees
what he can see Jill can’t see
and he can see
that Jill can’t see that she can’t see
but he can’t see WHY
Jill can’t see that Jill can’t see”   

I guess it really is a wise idea never to assume that someone will see things exactly as I do!

Art from a Tea Cup......with Cecelia Rappaport



Looking around in all my stuff, I came across a box I made many years ago. 
It was covered in red fabric with a starched-stiff teacup affixed to the top of the lid.



Inside the box I found information on Meret Oppenheimhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Méret_Oppenheim 
She was a surrealist born on October 6, 1913, over 103 years ago.
Her fur-covered teacup, saucer and spoon, entitled  “Object” (Breakfast in Fur) was the first piece of her art that the Museum of Modern Art acquired, making Oppenheim the First Lady of MoMA.



Here are two important facts I learned today.  Meret Oppenheim and Cecelia Rappaport share the same birthday and we both found the time to create Art from a Teacup!!!!

Create art and enjoy your day!!!!!!
