"I really don't know clouds at all..." (Joni Mitchell)
“Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's cloud's illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all…” Joni Mitchell
As these words go, as reflection of the songwriters look at life, and how things seem a certain way, but in reality are so different. These words echo my heart.
There are seasons in life, there are changing conditions and for all of us these things come about without warning. Then we must process and adjust to meet the challenge. Seems such clinical approach. In reality nothing ever is clinical. Nothing really is predictable. And emotions get in the way. “Something’s lost and something’s gained in living every day”. In the end we don’t really have much control. My life is in Gods hands. Each day I am more and more resolved to this end. I remain in his mercy and care, every day. He provides for me in spite of myself.
I really don’t know clouds at all. I just take each day one minute at a time.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
