But I am just too excited to wait and share “may we always sit in awe of others’ differings”. Watching this idea come to life after discovering and being inspired by the tiny family of mice that moved into our empty beehive in October is simply magical. I am so thrilled to report that the lilliputian family is still well and thriving all nestled in their bed of twigs and leaves with a very healthy stash of acorns in their bee-utiful new home!

‘may we always sit in awe of others’ differings!’

Song of Four Fairies

Song of Four Fairies

They spring from fountains and from scared groves/And holy stream that flow… So wrote the poet Homer.

Pythoness Parthena Parker!!

Twas the night before Halloween and Pythoness Parthena Parker was weaving her web for the Queen.... Whil Harry Le Lapin de Clapier waited, however, what was unforeseen was that the Pythoness couldn't for the life of her achieve the that elusive hue of asparagus bean green!  Both had quite legitimate fears that come tomorrow morn, the Queen would shout, "OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!"

Twas, the night before Halloween and Pythoness Parthena Parker was working hard weaving her web for the Queen….
While, Harry Le Lapin de Clapier waited and looked on, however, what was unfortunate and quite unforeseen,
was that the Pythoness couldn’t for the life of her achieve that elusive hue of asparagus bean green!
Both had legitimate fears that come tomorrow morn, the Queen would shout, “OFF WITH THEIR FLIGHTYFEATHERNBRAINED GOURDS!”

And so, on that foggy and frosty Hallow’s eve, somewhere deep in the forest, they both drank a lot, and I do mean A LOT of caffeine. Watercolor & Quip by Anastasia Traina ~ 2012~

Only God is Perfect!

I am reposting my painting Beyond the Bough because I have learned a very important lesson. The lesson took place after I posted this painting, something wasn't quite right, the painting was too green and/or the perspective was off, etc, etc, etc...  So, I very tentatively tried to fix what I thought was wrong. That is when disaster really struck, everything became a muddy mess. However, something in me would not give up even though I really, really wanted to dump my watercolor in the trash. Then my mistakes took on a certain magic, and I could see my way through the dark forest.  Now, I am so very happy that I did NOT allow myself to just give up...because it is so very true that only God is perfect!  Watercolor reworked by Anastasia Traina ~ 2013
