The toy Castle the story behind the picture

The story of the toy castle
Long ago, in Eastern Europe lived a royal family. They built a castle on a hill where there were many lakes and trees.
THE Duke had many children. He decided to build a toy castle for them. It would be a fun place. The castle was built on poles in the middle of a laje in the deep forest. It was made of wood. The children loved their fun castle. They loved running thru the forest to their castle.
One day foreign Knights appeared before the Mai stone castle. They attacked the castle. God and slaves. The duke and his small aryl fought with courage but they we5re defeated. At the last moment of the battle the children and a grew guard escaped
They ran to the small castle on the lake. The crule knights followed
It was winter and the lake frozen/ the enemy surround the castle. The few guards fought bask. . They were no match for the heavily armored knights.
The small wooden castle was about to be captured. Those in the castle choose not to be slaves.
They set fire to the little wooden castle. The fire burned greatly. The heat of it melted the ice on the lake. The knights shed their armor and ran for their life.
Tag was Avery long time ago. Now sometimes in the deepest winter of a cold black night some swear they see naked men running for their lives.. That is why, to this day it is called the Naked Forest!

Freedom Pastel Pasinting 25x36

AFTER COFFEE AT “Buzz” in Oak Park
We continued down the street to 149 Harrison Street. What a nice street all lined with trees. We searched for Joisé. I had not been to her gallery for many years. I was pleased to find it still there.
I had taken some great classes from her!
Now upon entering the gallery some one else was there!
A delightful, enteric and enthuses lady artist. Victor a frame designer and Photo Artist, was displaying her works Marija (my eyes) said they were wonderful!
But where is Joicé!
Her Art was on the walls!
My friend then walked in. Elated I talked her ears off!
Then Maria gave me the signal I was talking too much!
So we ran away to the Green line, to return to my safe cave in Chicago.

Man and Nature (as a horse)

This is for a painting of man horse etc.

Looking at nature Man sat astride his steed,

> > This he thought no one could make words read> >
Two friends had traveled far.> > Many years had blown away.> >
For them both to reach the day.> >
They felt not alone.> >
In front of them stretched water and land> >
So this hill of trees and grass they stand.> > To see future sway>
And as forseen the future did, sway and sway, but the fate of them both was in future's hand.
Lovingly it held them close, tenderly, releasing both.They nuzzled noses, breathed in deep each others scent, they filled with strenght.
Reluctantly they went on to another journey, alone.

Why I did not paint today!!

Yesterday, Maria had a day off. We went to Racine bakery. They had some good soap. I missed their muffins, I like because they wered not baked yet.
Maria was tired. The nursing home always runs short handed or uses new worker slaves. So begrudgingly we went to Office Max for a computer table. Bad news they were too big and expensive. Then we went to Wal-Mart. I don’t like Wal-Mart because they are ruining small town businesses. Being a cheap skate, I give in because of price. My table only cost 37 dollars!!
THEN I TRIED TO PUT IT TOGETER! Bad move. I can’t see. Maria tried. “Then she stated” This is not woman’s work.”
Ok now what!? So I went to a tavern to see if I could find some one to help. Everyone was too Drunk!!
So I want to my computer friend and said “want to make 20 dollars?” May be I lost a friend! He did it! I think it tortured him! Now it stands finished as a monument to some Chinese worker that made it!!!

Johnson's Mountain

A crap apple tree can live more than a hundred yeas. On a mountain in Vermont it still lives for two hundreds years and may live forever.
Many years age Mr. Johnson planted an apple tree on a tree less mountain. He loved trees.
In a storm much later both were struck down.
The tree upon falling thrust its limbs into the rocky soil.
From the limps grew other trees.
Now the mountain side is covered with trees. All from the one tree.
They celebrating natures will to live. Man can help nature as a partner so he can live forever~ Irving
