One of my favorite artists is Grandma Moses and as I presented a list of research topics for my students (they are embarking on a multigenre research project) I had placed Grandma Moses on the list. Guess what? One of my students is related to her! Amazing!
My mother introduced me to these homey small town scenes. My sisters adore them, too.
Kari of Writing Up a Storm often features illustrations and paintings. Do you read her blog? I find myself so drawn to the story tellers. She tends to her readers, so I hope I am not overwhelming her with more than she can handle, but it is a nurturing treat to connect with Kari. I have a feeling that all of you love art as well as the spirit of creating and that's why I like to share my finds with you.

I have a gadget on my home page that gives me a piece of artwork to look at every day. They are all astounding, but this one especially captured me. I hope you have a few moments to sit and ponder today. I'll stoke the fire for you.
