The Scapes of My Memories

These 'SCAPES' Landscapes, City-scapes, Seascapes and possibly a few escapes too
These are my paintings of some wonderful places we have seen and enjoyed.
Wouldn't it be nice, I said, to return to the wonderful places we have visited. But the places of our memories are most likely gone or very different now.
We cant go back. But hubby suggested I could go back in my art. And indeed I can.

These happenings of yesterday now belong to history.
I'll try to use this moment wisely, for it soon too will pass away,
I'll share these Places of happy visits or events I've seen throughout my long lifetime.
These paintings are the way I recall these locations and occasions, my wonderful places of yesteryear done my way. I hope you enjoy my memories as much I have enjoyed painting them.


Here is a poem I rather like:
Once, I heard distant thunderstorms and walked among spring showers
My eyes saw happy sun-drenched days on Mountains Plains and towns
I've also looked upon the works of man with wonder and with awe.
Some took my breath away, brought joy to my heart, or a smile to my face.
These were Precious moments that live in my memory, soon enough they too may disappear
for now my mind is veiled with autumn haze, old leaves swirl through the air.
But once I strolled down country roads and city streets and felt God's presence there.
