A bit of spring in these cold days...

The Amen of nature is always a flower.

Yes!!....The amen of nature is always a flower. I would love to be walking in that field of poppies on a spring day.

Glad you like it! This is one of my favorite paintings by Monet, the green-red contrast is just amazing here.

I LOVE BLACK AND WHITE said...

The green and red are christmas colors too... up-to-date

Hey, that's right :)

Cécile said...

I love this quote! My, Thinker, too many great quotes on your blog, I can't take it anymore! ;) I have to get a whole new notebook for these... :)

thinker said...

Hi Cécile, Glad you like the quotes!
There really is a lot of them already, but what can i do - they keep coming and coming ;)

now I wonder about the winter... even though my favourite seasons are autumn and spring. and yes, certainly a flower is the Amen for spring. I totally second Cécile, your quotes are really good... As you know, I use many of your words on my blog. I should create a new blog to make images for your words :) Or maybe you could make a series of small scale sculptures for your favourite quotes... just an idea :)

thinker said...

You are right, the winter quote is missing, i will do something about that right away:)
Glad you like the quotes, i and i like your idea, a good quote as an idea for sculpture, or an art piece. I already have a few ideas...

Luisa Santos said...

I look forward to seeing them!!! I really think it could work out really fine :) and they could be presented both online and in a gallery. actually, even just in a small intimate book... let me know if u want some help in that :)
what about the blog? would you be up to choosing a quote a day and I would choose / take a photograph a day? we could do a 365 days blog beginning in January 2009 :) lets do it?

I like the 365 blog idea, let's try it :)
