All Is Well With A Candle In The Window - Origianl Art Painting by Mary Beth Brath - Daily Painter of Pennsylvania

All Is Well With A Candle In The Window
President James Buchanan's Home in Lancaster PA
by Mary Beth Brath

Finally - finished. I enjoyed an awesome day of plein air painting with members of the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters recently. I had most of the painting finished on site but I needed to adjust some angles, put a candle in the window and simplify colors.

I was intrigued by this quiet rear entrance covered with a very healthy grape vine. There was no candle in the window - that was my doing. The "grape vine" of gossip surrounding Buchanan's presidency is also quite healthy. My candle symbolizes peace and assurance that all is well.

Big Life. Collage. Shelby Pizzarro

Big Life. Collage.
There are times when life is a song. You know all the words, sing along, and even throw in a few improvised moments with wild abandon. And everything falls into place. Like magic. But we have all experienced times that are challenging. We not only forget the words, but at times the tune. And life seems to be getting smaller, restricted, limited. And this is where I am at the moment.

On the way home from a doctor's appointment I stopped at Starbucks for coffee. I reached into a bin of cup sleeves and pulled out one with the following message:

"Your life is big. Keep reaching." - Oprah Winfrey

Encouraging advice continues on the back: take a few moments to pause and reflect. Teavana and Oprah call it your own personal "steep time". Time to Steep Your Soul.

It was just what I needed to read. Synchronicity? I believe so. And it was enough to get me back to hearing a  bit of the tune...if not the words. I rifled through my box of ephemera. I found a vintage romance magazine. The image of the woman from a 1920's ad was just what I needed. Someone happy, effervescent...dare I say Bubbly? Someone clearly reaching and enjoying life.

The substrate for the collage is a canvas panel. The background is a page from the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper Want Ads circa 1972. Hershey Kiss wrappers, fine art images, tea dyed gauze, a dried petal from an iris plant, tea bags, printed and rubber stamped tissue paper, dictionary text. Acrylic paint sponged and pushed through purchased and hand cut stencils finish the collage.

So, although my life is still not filled with lyrics and a tune, I am hopeful. I know the big life is there. I just need to keep on reaching.

this opportunity to our group of Pastelists leaded by Richard McKinley.
We all had wonderful time there. Great weather. Great views. Great art.
Much to remember.
