A Little Piece of Bethville

“I hope you will discover and enjoy the benefits that aging can bring; wisdom, depth of character, the smoothing out of what is rough and harsh, the evaporation of what is inconsequential, and the concentration of true worth.”
— Andrew Weil, M.D.

A Little Piece of Bethville I – Watercolor

Here’s another glimpse of one of my Bethville paintings.  🙂

As 2011 draws to a close, I would like to thank those of you who read this little blog and take the time to “like” or comment.   I really enjoy sharing my little artistic endeavors.  Here’s wishing you a very safe New Year’s Eve and A Wonderful 2012!!    See you on the other side!  😀

Andrew Thomas Weil (born June 8, 1942) is an American author and physician, who established the field of integrative medicine which attempts to integrate alternative and conventional medicine. Weil is the author of several best-selling books and operates a website and monthly newsletter promoting general health and healthy aging. He is the founder and program director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (formerly the Program in Integrative Medicine), which he started in 1994 at the University of Arizona.   He is frequently criticized for his promotion of alternative medicine,  drug use and the potential conflicts of interest this raises in relation to his business dealings.  More at Wikipedia

    I haven’t been here in soooooooo long! Love the little glimpses of Bethville, and among my favorites are the ones done on masa paper.

    Have a wonderful New Year!!!

    I am becoming intrigued by Bethville. You are showing us the tiniest segments of buildings. Do they have signs above the doors, perchance? I hope they do.
    I really can identify with your quote, above. Though aging, I am more comfortable than ever in my own skin. Yes, the rough edges have been smoothed out.
    Happy New Year to you and your husband!

      Thanks, Leslie! Yes, they are buildings on a street with signs on them. I know what you mean about the quote, too. I wouldn’t want to be 20, 30 or even 40 again for anything. Here’s to smother edges! 🙂

      Did you see the negative painted bird on masa from Monday? Whenever I paint on masa I think of you. Thanks for sharing your techniques.

      I hope you and your family have a very Happy New Year, my friend!
