Large MM Abstract.

Large MM Abstract.

This painting was created using the same methods as the one I used on my blog yesterday. It seemed right to put the other one on again today.

I am not sure that it fits with the blog I have written today on my other blog and for that I apologise.

I am still struggling to come to terms with the fact that somebody I have got to know on here is off sleeping in a car and I can do little about. I also have a dear friend who is going through Chemo at present and I can do little about that either.

Another of my blogging friends is also very ill and can not paint because it is exhausting her. I can do nothing. I feel helpless.

In the meantime here I am complaining that I cannot find the inspiration to paint, seems so trivial. At the same time my health is daily increasing with the tough schedule I have set myself. I have lost 28lbs in weight running better and yesterday cycled twice as far as I had thought I could and intended.

So one day soon I will paint. I have been trying to do some drawing but it is far from good enough to show on here, after showing Barbra’s tree roots.

I have also been remiss in leaving encouraging comments on the many blogs I read every day. That I will put right .

It is these thoughts that prompted my other blog this morning.

I hope you have a good day.

This blog is linked to my other.  So You Thought Nobody Was Watching


  1. Good Morning Ralph, Yes we are powerless unless given the power! Another "signature painting" my friend, I would recognize it anywhere!

  2. There is nothing good about feeling helpless. However, there are times and events that make it so. Sometimes something small - a card, phone call, flowers from your garden - can mean a great deal to someone having a bad time. Just knowing that someone else cares makes a huge difference.

    Glad to hear you are doing better! :-)

  3. You are inspiring people which is far from being helpless - and you give people pleasure with your art too. It is so sad that some people suffer such misfortune in their lives - but some things are just out of our control. Just keep inspiring, Ralph!

  4. may you paint
    from your great heart
    a beat of hope
    a tear of grace
    a memory
    and a flower

    may the light shine
    on your canvas
    as that first great light from darkness
    as the word I AM
    rang from steeple heights

    may you breathe
    and paint
    may you breathe
    and paint
    may your great heart beat
    and may you persist

  5. A beautiful piece Ralph. I'm sure your prayers help more than you know.

  6. On est vulnérable face à l'impuissance... Vous faites déjà beaucoup, vous pensez...
    J'aime votre peinture, elle est très souvent tellement forte... comme vous. Courage,
