Seeing Positive and Negative

IMG_8281 (2)

This beautiful block print was done by my granddaughter and given to us as a Christmas gift. If you look at it, you can see both a positive and negative rose. This is just like life. Sometimes the roses shine bright and are easy to see. Other times they may be dark and harder to see. I believe it is important to understand the relationship between the two.

Life’s bright roses bloom

While shadows linger nearby

Thorns keep us careful

  1. Hello Dwight .. I’m still holidaying at my brother’s in Ballarat.. and he has set up his lap-top with my WP acc. so things are easy for me to do comments now … I’ve been using my phone which is quite difficult to use with my arthritic fingers … I suppose this is a case of “the positive and negative” .. I hope you’re having a wonderful festive season .. cheers Dwight

    • Glad to hear you are enjoying the holidays with family. We are having family over tomorrow as well. Glad he set you up with your WP site on his computer. Yes. life is full of positive and negative it seems! Thanks Ivor!

  2. Seeing the negative is the secret of great artists. You might enjoy reading “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” if you haven’t read it already. It’s an amazing book for any artist and would be great for your granddaughter too! πŸ˜βœ¨πŸ‘Œ
