Only a few will catch your heart

I spotted this inspiring quotation on facebook this morning while going over some of my summer photos. So, I poured another cup of coffee and played around a bit. 

Here is the photo I started with. This luscious Dahlia Van Gogh was sunning itself on a perfect summer day in Thuya Garden, Mount Desert Island. I keep telling myself that one of these days I need to get around to painting these pretties. Perhaps that is why the Michael Nolan quote spoke to me this morning.


  1. I love that quote and love what you did with that picture!

    1. Thanks so much, April. "Real life" has been sapping my creative time & energy lately so the quote was spot on & it was great to make some time to play.
