Happy Earth Day!!!! 

(and ♪ happy birthday ♫ to me! ♥)

I will be with my art goodies at the Wake Up The Earth Festival being held in Jamaica Plain, MA on May 5 (rain date May 6).  This festival has been held for over 30 years (though this is my first time attending). Let your inner hippie come out and come be crunchy granola with me!  I'd love to see you!

In the spirit of celebrating Mother Earth:

Thief of Sleep - Rumi

Thief of Sleep (work in progress)

Inspired by:

When the sweet glance of my true love caught my eyes,
Like alchemy, it transformed my copper-like soul.
I searched for Him with a thousand hands,
He stretched out His arms and clutched my feet.

From Thief of Sleep
by Rumi

Tears of a Clown (sketch)

Something a bit different from my normal style...

Tears of a Clown
(lyrics by Smokey Robinson)

Just like Pagliacci did
I try to keep my surface hid
Smiling in the public eye
But in my lonely room I cry
The tears of a clown
When there's no one around, oh yeah, baby baby
Now if there's a smile on my face
Don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
Don't let this smile I wear
Make you think that I don't care
When really I'm sad…I’m hurting so bad.
Tears of a Clown...
