Don't you love big white puffy clouds in a bright blue sky?

Is there anything else to this post other than cloud photos?  Nope.
You do know you're at OnlyDaydreaming dot com, right? 

happy friday!

what am I doing?

This blog thing...I don't really know what I'm doing.  I suppose I started it because I enjoy reading the blogs of the artists who I love and respect and I like getting to know more about them - so I thought maybe people who like my art would like to get a sense of who I am.  But that seems so...vain.  And just stupid.  At least, that's how it has been feeling for the past few days.  I'm not sure if I'm cut out for blogging.  I feel vulnerable and invisible at the same time.

watercolor love

I love art.

I discovered the watercolors of Carianne Mack Garside yesterday.  Her paintings have such a dreamy quality - which go a long way with me, if you haven't noticed.  Please take a minute to view her website.  You won't be disappointed.




I'm off to visit family this weekend and I'll be going to see this movie that I have high hopes for.
Have a super groovy weekend!
Love, me

It's dark and dreary and cold and rainy...and I'm loving it.  It's fair to assume that I will be drinking plenty of hot tea and staring out the window today, and probably feeling a little sorry for the mail carriers.

chasing the sun

Beautiful day.  Went for a drive.  Listened to the Dead.  Chased the sun.

missed connections

Currently loving Sophie Blackall's ongoing 'Missed Connections' series of illustrations.  She describes them best...

"Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections websites. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I'm trying to pin a few of them down."
~ Sophie Blackall

You can see more of them in her Etsy shop.

And speaking of missed connections, I missed a call from my niece this morning.  Apparently she threw a bit of a tantrum until her mother agreed to let her call Aunt Dana - and I was sleeping.  Darn it.
