"Hold on to what is good,
even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
even if it is a long way from here.
Hold onto life even if it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you."
Native American Quotes - I think this is beautiful I hope you enjoy it too. I do feel it reaches out to all of us.
May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart
May hope forever wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may
silence make you strong.
Chief Dan George
The new painting continues to make progress. One of the many qualities of pastels is that they are so tactile, I am working on a new ground with this painting, which allows for up to 10 layers of pastel to be built up, I am then able to blend the colours with my fingers. The result is a much smoother finish.
