What Did You Say My Sweet Pup


Featuring an array of critters!

"The principle of true art is not to portray but to evoke."
Jerzy Kosinski



This kid loves art and his dragons so much
 that this year he became a part of his art.


"Art enables us to find ourselves and
lose ourselves at the same time."
Thomas Merton


"Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
Anatole France 






"An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language."
Martin Buber 




These eyes, are looking at YOU!




Stay away big bad dog! You'll never catch me up here!


"When humans act with cruelty we characterize them as 'animals'
yet the only animal that displays cruelty is humanity."
Anthony Douglas Williams




Squirrel? Do I smell SQUIRREL!


"All real living is meeting."
Martin Buber




Yes, as a matter of fact, my Mommy put these silly bows in my hair!






An artist's true reward is to be enjoyed and evoke something
 you quite possibly never felt or will ever feel again. 




"One cannot in the nature of things 
expect a little tree that has been turned into a club
to put forth leaves."
Martin Buber




Here, this is for you!


"If the path be beautiful,
let us not ask where it leads."
Anatole France




In Minnesota this year it's
May showers are bringing up blossoms one by one!



"When the owl sings, the night is silent."
Charles de Leusse



Enjoy your day, and take good care of you.

Love this post Karen! Now that you mention it we do say that about badly behaved people acting like animals.. it's just not right and I won't say it again ☺ Sweet children and pets here. Hope you have a very lovely Mother's Day ✨

Lots of Martin Buber. I always liked him better than Reinhold Niebuhr back in my college days. Still do.
