Thank you, Julianna Swaney

As I told you in the last post I am having a some pains on my hand and so I was about to take the day off from blogging, but I decided to give it a shot; my left hand is the one that hurts and since I use my mouse with the right one (like, I guest, most people), I can still stay active in the searching and spying part of this posting process.

Since today was a rather hard day I thought to add no more pressure to my life, if something special came along I could add it to my to-post list or write about it, if nothing came, no harm done. After all I was active all day: buying medicines and stuff people need after surgery, going for groceries, buying my brother a little gift, taking grandma to her house. I was productive, just not in the writing department (I did, however, excelled in the not-fainting-in-the-hospital department).

So here I was, cruising the Web without a strong agenda; when I came across the lovely drawings of Julianna Swaney (Oh My Cavalier!) and I thought that, for them, I could ignore a little pain and write a post.

Her pieces are just so heavenly and simple; no fuss no chaos, just elegant and splendid drawings with soft watercolors. Yes, my mood affects tremendously mi pick of featured artist and for this night; the night of a long day filled with hard emotions, Julianna Swaney gave me exactly what I needed: delicate beauty.

That is all I could ask for, a little reminder that calm and pleasurable days do exist and that maybe soon I could be in the middle of one. For now, I will try and sleep and you go ahead and take a look at what Swaney does:

Maybe I'll Just Marry The Sky
