I love this one! And the song, too.

What a sad song. Here's wishing you happier thoughts to drift by in your sleep.

What intriguing image and song! I am so glad I "discovered" your blog. I already put it in my favorites. I live in Madrid and I am also a painter. Would love if you have a look at my work in the blog I started 3 weeks ago:
www.maiasintothemoonlight.blogspot.com
I will be visiting here often.

Ah, nothing like a little cat nap in the long grass as the lazy days of summer are almost upon us!

Both images are peaceful.

Eva - Oh, I can see yet another series coming on.

mum - I suppose I just take the song as a suggestion that overthinking things doesn't always increase perception.

Thanks for your comment. Yes, I will be painting and sketching in Portugal. Everywhere I go my brushes and pencils and paper come with me, I never know what will happen. A delay at the airport and all those faces to draw! Having a coffee along the beach and all those bodies in the most awkward positions...

Long time ago, the only english I listen was in the songs. When I ear the word "drifting" I quickly think in a verse of a Genesis song, "Follow You Follow Me": All your fears are drifting by me so slowly now...

This makes me wish it were warm out (instead of raining & cold!) and I could go drift off to sleep in the summer grass. Love it.
