    Your blossom world image reminds me of a snow globe–beautiful, as always.

    Just read your interview, and here are the two sentences you said that stood out to me, as something I hope you create Art in response to…

    “it feels like recess when i create.” Love this explanation of “art playgroundist”–which is a term I also love!

    “to risk living my insides on the outside.” Something I’m in the process of doing, every day.

    Thanks, Rachel, for listening, creating and sharing with the world!

    Thank you!
    Today my name is Baldie.
    This is for you, for your visits and cheery comments on my blog:

    Hello Rachel, the poet!
    Uhm… I am stumped.
    What rhymes with coffee?
    I see!
    You came with sunshine
    And drew it with a clean line
    Right here on my blog.
    Now you lifted the fog.
    Thank you!


  30. I, too, love a blossom world, my garden, and your painting…
