Eye Study






The eyes are considered as one of the most wonderful things we have. 
With our eyes, we could see the beauty of our world and other things. 
Sometimes, you can also tell how a person feels 
through his or her eyes 
 whether sadness, happiness, or sometimes even lies.
 It is no wonder why, 
 that the eyes are said to be
 the open windows to the soul of a person.

Canvas-Rooster



“A rooster crows only when it sees the light. 
Put him in the dark and he’ll never crow.
 I have seen the light and I’m crowing.”

Sketchbook- Peace




Peace...
It does not mean to be in a place
where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.
It means to be in the midst of those things
and still be calm in your heart.

Sketchbook-Wisteria



 A New Page by Randolph L. Wilson
 
Peridot twinkling Pine, Father sunshine
Shadow rhymes, intermittent portals of ray
donning signals from 'On High',
Navy blues mingle with Dogwood whites
sprayed with Wisteria purple
on a young, quiet Saturday night
My Bluebird ancestors, perched on a farm bell,
bringing joy and good fortune
as long as the Summer day
Coffee on a sturdy wood porch,
waiting for the Milky Way

Sketchbook- Moon Wishes

acrylic on paper

***
Have you ever just stared at the moon...
and made wishes to it?


Have you ever just stared at the stars
and just marveled at the sheer magnitude of its numbers?
Curious as to its hidden secrets?

Have you ever just talked to the universe
and asked for your wishes to come true?

To all of you that are reading this....
to all of you that are in need...
to those yearning for clarity...
for you that feel alone...


May this new year bring you all of your heart's desires.
May it bring you all the love and happiness that you deserve.
May the moon bring to you
all the wondrous magic that you've been asking for.

Wishing all of you a joyous and prosperous 2017!

Sketchbook Winter



Winter is the slow-down.
Winter is the search for self.
Winter gives the silence you need to listen.
Winter goes gray so you can see your own colors...

Leo the Lion


  ***

The Lion and the Mouse

A Lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws. 
A timid little Mouse came upon him unexpectedly, 
and in her fright and haste to get away, 
ran across the Lion's nose. 
Roused from his nap,
 the Lion laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny creature to kill her.
"Spare me!" begged the poor Mouse. 
"Please let me go and some day I will surely repay you."
The Lion was much amused to think that a Mouse could ever help him. 
But he was generous and finally let the Mouse go.
 Some days later, 
while stalking his prey in the forest, 
the Lion was caught in the toils of a hunter's net. 
Unable to free himself, he filled the forest with his angry roaring. 
The Mouse knew the voice and quickly found the Lion struggling in the net. 
 Running to one of the great ropes that bound him, 
she gnawed it until it parted, and soon the Lion was free.
"You laughed when I said I would repay you," said the Mouse. 
"Now you see that even a Mouse can help a Lion."
                                     -Aesop's Fables

The Truth is like a lion.
You don't have to defend it.
Let it loose.
It will defend itself.
            -St. Augustine

Kindness and Truth.

This is for you ACB.
I treasure our friendship.
