Sunset On Her Breath

Beloved_blog

I was forced to take a break from my computer during the holidays as I left it at the security check point in Phoenix – but very happy to have it back! I had a really boring title picked out for this painting, but after re-reading Bret’s blog I found these great lyrics from 40 Day Dream by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros:

“She got sunset on her breath
I inhaled just a little bit
Now I got no fear of death”

I once again want to give Bret his due credit for inspiring me to launch this blog. It has opened my eyes to the wonderful world of blogging and all the amazingly creative people out there.
