Art is never finished.

A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light. ~ Leonardo da Vinci

    1. Ivon, if I could write with the same incite and perception as you, I wouldn’t need to rely on an old master to convey my thoughts. But who could say it better than da Vinci? I appreciate your reflagging my post along with your beautiful caption. You’ve always been supportive of me and many other bloggers, which means more than you can know! Thank you!


  1. I remember when you were a bit hesitant about your writing, which I think is wonderful. And now I sense you are pushing yourself more seriously into photography? Well, I for one think your images are topnotch. Love that Instagram surfboard picture on the sidebar!


    1. Yes, still hesitant, but the support of friends and fellow bloggers has made it easier find my voice…meek as it may be! I am trying to improve my photography skills, but find that I’m usually so overcome by the moment that I choke on the technical. Thank you so much for your encouragement, I always look forward to hearing from you. (That is my daughter on the surfboard, who found that surfing wasn’t as easy as she thought it would be. A Go Pro shot taken by her friend.) Take care, and a squeeze to Tzuri!


  2. What a gorgeous image, Elisa. I also thought it was a painting. I have to agree with da Vinci. I could have fiddled around forever with my lighthouse pic, but decided it would have to do as it is, or I would never finish and get onto the next one. πŸ™‚


          1. not an artist? you! i beg to differ πŸ™‚
            pray continue you paint with words
            anyway… my next canvas is now prepped black… and i’ve got the gold leaf out πŸ˜‰
            argh! πŸ™‚ scary


  3. Niki, my friend, sent me over here. I am so glad I did, because I have just crossed paths with another Bright Light, Elisa. LOVED this post, your shot, and the quote, one in fact, I do understand, even applied to Life itself. “From out of the void, all Beauty is made.” Bless you! Words came that will match perfectly with a photo that I am about ready to post soon. Thank YOU so much!! (((HUGS))) Amy
