Artistic License

This was supposed to be posted on Curious to the Max, the blog where we post all things “Curious” . . . too many blogs, too little time, too little grey matter . . . .judy

Doing little mini paintings.  They appeal to my need for instant gratification.

I don’t care about painting exact replicas of the subject – either content or colors. . . . If you saw the reference photos you’d say “Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?”  The first reference was a picture of a slice of pumpkin pie and the second was a bucolic scene with the house in the distance.  I prefer to call it “artistic license” rather than “novice efforts”.

people will forget what you did, 

but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Pawsitively Tuesday – love & light

Darkness can lead to light

when you find what you love

or love what you find

Love isn’t always

at first sight

Pawsitively Tuesday – Nuts to you

Here’s the good news

Eat nuts for your health

Pecans, walnuts, cashews

macadamias, if you choose

Just remember please

Peanuts are not nuts

They’re legumes, just like peas

no ifs, ands or buts

Legume by Peggy

The analysis of tree nut consumption included 826 patients.  Previous studies showed positive associations between regular consumption of nuts reduction in cardiovascular disease and cancer, as well as a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and insulin resistance.*

The results showed that patients who consumed two or more 1-oz servings of nuts weekly had a 42% lower risk of cancer recurrence and a 57% lower risk of death from any cause during the follow-up period.

“The associations were limited to tree-nut intake and were not significant for consumption of peanuts or peanut butter,” said Fadelu. “The biologic mechanism is unknown but is likely related to the effect of nuts on insulin resistance.”

April 29th, International Dance Day

“People reflect each other constantly,

but when they dance, perhaps what they reflect most is that moment of honesty.”

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, dancer and choreographer

Shake, rattle ‘n roll, Internationally by Peggy

“In 1982 the Dance Committee of ITI founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on the 29th April, the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), creator of modern ballet. The intention of the International Dance Day Message is to celebrate dance, revel in the universality of this art form, cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers, and bring people together with a common language – dance.”
