Happy Valentines Day or as it is known in our house as Ballantyne's Day.  Found this wonderful quote by Rainer Maria Rilke, which I feel says it all. "For one human being to love another that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof; the work for which all other work is but preparation." 
The Red Thread That Binds, mixed media , 2010


  1. Wow , Stunning work beautiful colours

    great post Liz.

  2. Lovely work--I can get lost in the strokes of the pastels against the scarlet, pink and salmon ground. That blue is the icing on the cake!

  3. Dear Liz,
    The "The Red Thread That Binds" is beautiful and so is Rilke's thought on love. Thank you for this perfect for the eyes and soul post.
    Happy Valentine's Day/Night!

  4. Thank you all for the lovely comments, so very glad you enjoyed Red Thread and Rilke. Fascinating how my ideas of love change with the years.


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
