Tucked Away Review


The following is a review by my dear friend who is a writer and a photographer (and owner of the original painting).
Check her out at

Wispy hair frames an expression unreadable by passersby while leaves crunch under feet anxious for homecoming. Her scarf reminisces a delicate fragrance meant to charm senses and intertwines with the crisp Autumn breeze.  She’s almost there…
…and Tucked Away becomes part of my home, part of a collection that represents the beauty artists are ALWAYS able to eloquently reveal.  Vibrant-colored emotion captured by my dear friend, Boston, now occupies a wall once unadorned.  If I could somehow translate what it is to be owner of this piece of art, I’d happily write pages and pages but alas, we haven’t the space or time. Incidentally, if I claimed I wasn’t biased to this particular artist, my pants would thoroughly catch on fire!
Nevertheless, I confidently commend Ms. Misty on this rather exquisite piece of art.  Packaged safely, eagerly received, it’s with pride I continue to promote her work!

I dream...

What do you dream about?

I sleep a lot a lot a lot. 
I ♥ my bed!
I probably sleep more than the average person and would sleep more if I could!
The only problem with my sleeping is that I dream a lot a lot a lot, probably more than the average person.  Sometimes my dreams haunt me, I have a lot of nightmares.  My Psychology of Sleep and Dreams professor told me creative people are prone to nightmares.  Maybe I should be satisfied with that concept, but my nightmares still plague me.

I’ve created this as a girl who is sleeping/dreaming… but in reality it’s me daydreaming… about either being at home in my comfy bed or lounging on the beach. J

I ask the question again… what do you dream about?

I have a blank sketch ready to receive answers:

Fire Dancers

I've created some fire dancers...

Fire Dancer (poem by Jezibell)
She does not speak in words,
But in meaning.
She is radiant motion,
Leaping beauty.

Gold-clad and slinky,
She undulates with the flame,
Sparkling and crackling.

She is the gypsy Goddess,
The tireless traveler.
She appears where she is needed
To light,
To heat,
To heal.

She is joy!
Wide-eyed, bright-smiled,
Burning pure,
Dancing passion.
Even her tears are illuminations.

She spins within the worlds,
From the blazing burst of the comets,
To the fiery forge in the heart of the earth.

Yet she is as close as a candle.
