Special Delivery



Saturday was a monumental day! We installed a new mailbox! This may sound like a simple thing but to me... it is important to enjoy everything that I can. I love living in the country surrounded by nature... birds, frogs, cows,... everything!

The Veiled Moon

The night is dark and velvety,

All Nature seems asleep;

The moon has covered, well, her face,

As if in sorrow, deep.

~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "The Prayer of the Moon" (1940s)

Show and Tell: Celestia

Celestia painting KmBennettArt

The painting 'Celestia' has roots going back to my beginning as a serious artist. I had moved into a TINY (19 foot) camping trailer onto friends' property in the mountains. When I first acquired the trailer, everything was brown.... and I mean everything! The walls, floor, ceiling, cushions, counters, everything, was some shade of brown. I immediately set to painting the ceiling with light blues and lavenders and stencilled on gold and silver stars.
