Severe allergies prevent me from outside activities I once loved doing, including gardening. But your art keeps me company and brings me much joy.

Beautiful Floral, Forests, and Frondescence

I love all that I fave, but these are especially nice.

Beautiful Floral, Forests, and Frondescence

I'm most fond of cats (raised many, none now), but also had dogs, birds, and horses. I like observing frogs and lizards and most all animals, including certain insects. I enjoy seeing what all of you have photographed, drawn, or painted.

Beautiful Floral, Forests, and Frondescence

Beautiful still life by talented dA artists. My most favorite art form is still life, including that which I try to do myself.

Beautiful Floral, Forests, and Frondescence

All of these are by wonderful dA artists. I enjoy looking at them very much.

Bio: Female, age 66. California born and raised except for 5 years in Arkansas. Was married too young and too long (28+ years). I have one son, no grand children. But I'm Aunty to many nieces/nephews, a great aunty to even more, and more recently a great great to two. That makes me smile.

And if it's not already fairly obvious, I'm candid and comfortable speaking my mind. It's how I believe we all should be. --Claudia, July 2014

Favorite Colors? ©
Medium to Light Blues,
Purples in all Hues,
Soft Sunny Yellows,
Everything Greens,
and All In Betweens.
~~Claudia 2010

My quotes, philosophies, and poetry: ©
"One thing I've learned in this long life of half joy and half sorrow,
it's Love that decides when and how it loves -- not I."
~~Claudia 6/2010

"It's not how piercing the comebacks,
but how meaningful the argument." ツ
~~Claudia 2011

"If the light be truth, I always choose the light.
If the dark be illusion in which to hide,
I choose to illuminate.
If in between I fall and must again choose,
I hope always to use the dark as the direction from which I depart, and not arrive."
~~Claudia 11/2011

Just A MessageI say,
make friends with yourself,
be at ease with yourself,
as the old adage "Wherever you go, there you are"...
You cannot leave yourself behind,
nor should you even try.
Let it go with you everywhere,
as both shadow and leader...
Learn, grow, make friends, and be at peace
with the one you first met
and will last hear with your last breath,
the person you know best...
an individual unlike anyone else
anywhere
at any time.

Really? Coincidences, huh?  :)  How do you like this drought? And the quakes and fires?  I would say I wish I'd been born and raised elsewhere, but really there is no better elsewhere.  All places have their goods and bads.  But if CA can't turn this drought around, we're in very deep doodoo!  :(  Where would you choose to live if you could?
