No art from me today,
but I do want to share something from this man.
I love this man's work.
He is a prolific illustrator and has published
several books and art journals.
He reminds me that art is life.
He reminds me that drawing can be done anytime,
with anything as a subject.
He is skilled at handwriting
and combining color
but more than anything
he is skilled at living.
He is skilled at observing.
At taking the time.
At sharing a day in the life...
I am grateful for people like Danny Gregory,
who give us a glimpse into their world
through art and words.
Danny reminds me that we all have a story to tell
and that we all have a different way
of looking at the world.
He reminds me that we're all ok.
He also reminds me that
there is room for everyone in this world
and that there can be such beauty
in sharing the most simple things.
The drawing of a bagel
a cup of coffee
a park bench.
His latest book is this one.
A kiss before you go -
an illustrated memoir of love and loss
(about his wife, Patti)
You can hear Danny talk about his book here.
This one will be sitting on my shelf soon.
Wishing you all a great weekend
and for my Canadian friends,
a WONDERFUL Canada day tomorrow, eh!! :-)
Tomorrow is all about fireworks and lollipops for me.
