“Were the diver to think on the jaws of the shark, he would never lay hands on the precious pearl.”
Happy Halloween! 5″ x 9″ Watercolor & Sharpie
I painted this little scene last year. Although I did have a little time to paint this weekend, I never thought to do something goulish! It did feel good to put paintbrushes to paper!
We also put the hardtop back on my little Jeep Wrangler, so I guess that means our summer is over! It is going to be around 70 today, I think. That will be nice for all the little trick or treaters. Eufaula merchants, like me, will be giving out candy between 4-6 today. I love seeing all the cute little kiddies in their costumes.
Saadi was a Persian moralist poet best known for Gulistan (The Rose Garden), which combines prose and verse, and Bustan (The Fruit Garden), which includes histories, anecdotes, and fables. He was born in 1291 and lived in Shiraz in what is now Iran. For 30 years, he traveled throughout the Middle East, including Turkey, Egypt, and Arabia. One of his most famous poems adorns the entrance to the Hall of Nations at the UN building in New York. He died when he was 107 years old.
