Tug Boat Galleria by Laurel Marie Sobol

tug boat by lms framed

Working on a Tug Boat and it’s finally done!

It’s a beautiful little tug boat, red and white and black, with tires around the bow and sides.  It’s name is Laurel Sobol, of course what other name would I give my tug boat? The tug is in moving in the sea with waves gently moving.  I love my tug boat painting.  It’s acrylic and about 9″ X 12″ but it is much bigger than that as I look upon it, it makes me feel like I’m on the boat enjoying a ride on the sea.

To keep and to guide him
In times when the weather turns

Dour and hard
Making the sailor seek better shelter

To guide and encourage with light and signal
Bringing back to the harbor all battered sailors

Veteran Memorial Bridge~ Lined Journal…reminds us freedom isn’t free

There was and is a high cost for free thoughts, free press, and free speech.  Our God and our veterans are our hope to keep these freedoms hard won and fought for forever!  This journal has been hacked by NSA Obama pedophile hackers, who have with the stroke of a pen changed, polluted, and altered the press and freedom.  We do not consent and NSA loses all credibility when they pollute the press, thoughts, and speech of the people whom-so-ever these people are worldwide.

The red eyed green tree frog is very small, about 2″ to 3″ in all, it lives in the rainforest which is it’s habitat and it depends on daily rainfall for the insects that it eats.  This cute fella is a sight to behold, it opens up it’s big eyes to scare off predators, no wonder it would do the trick if you were after it.  the rainforest are disappearing worldwide from toxins and chemicals of big business, GMO’s in ethanol, Chemtrail bombs, and HAARP, along with nuclear energy waste…intended to target plants, animals, people, and natural systems and events such as earthquakes, flooding, hurricanes and such.  Melting of the poles is part of the agenda as genocide of all living things goes down.  Wars, religious, instigated by elite as well, corporations and bankers who took over the world in New World Order, takeover.  The UN and Geneva Conventions also taken over by elite as well.  I shall never drink another Coke or Pepsi, two of the seven major corporations taking over the world and polluting the skies, sea, lakes, groundwater with glyphosates from their mentor Monsanto and Blackwater.

Dandelion Mist

 

 

There it is big and full

The bloom so yellow and gold and bold

 

A piece of sunshine that landed here

Upon the earth to be endeared

 

With little petals that radiate out

In a gentle orbit all about

 

Take time someday to observe one too

Perhaps you will blow some dandelion mist

 

From the dandelion seeds And see them drift up and away

Spinning off into orbits far away a million little flowers

Stray

To make more sunshine another

Tiger Eyes

The eyes of a tiger are more  intense than I had imagined they ever would be

But it just so happened that I got the chance

I was looking at him and he saw right into my eyes

The tiger was a big one, not very far from us,

Proximity and relativity

Were part of the moments

The power and beauty of majesty~ Tiger

Now mean more to me

This tiger looking at me, me looking at he, well let me just say I can not be the same

That God made man and tigers is a most amazing thing

That tigers still live in this world so  few but loved

Testimony that there may still be hope for man and nature too~

About Elephants~ It was thought many things but…

Elephants

Are a most magical creation of God

And it’s long been surmised by men that elephant matrons

Led the pack of lady elephants, calfs, and teenage queens

But the elephant patriarch is just as important as the matriarch

Leading the throng of elephant herds to far off lands

As seasons change from rainy to hot desert sun

Finding water means life over death for elephants

And the animals that are many depending on them

To enlarge and dig up water holes when water is scarce to be had

On the hot summer land where bare patches  of growth are to be had

The elephant story can be learned more as well

By the studious fellows who care about these Goliath animals

Whose intelligent minds, brave and kind hearts, and sense within

Are not equaled by any other creature on land

Mischievous, playful, talented, smart, and a memory that would

Embarrass a crow

I love the elephants whether in India or Africa

Or in my local zoo like little new born Lily of Rose in Portland too

I have painted the elephant in the many forms I know

Baby fuzzy headed Indian calve lovely to behold

Teenager elephants of Africa

Pygmy ones too

Herds of elephants happy as can be grazing in enormous African plains

As the sun sets beautifully

No worries

No problems

No poachers around

Just all the water and fields of grass that abound

The elephants life as the sun goes down

Hunkering beneath trees beside water under the moon

No leopards or lions or wild dogs to bring them down

Just a peaceful mother elephant and her young

The Bumble Bee

Daffodil by laurel marie sobol copyright

Bee  by Laurel Sobol  framed

The Honey Bee is a relation of the Bumble Bee and both mean a lot to humanity

I was surprised to find a very large friend of mine

He appeared one day recently

On one of my blue flowers blooming profusely

He looked so old and tired

Exhausted was more fitting of a description of him

I tried not to disturb him as I gazed intently upon him

His fluff and stuff was twice as much as I had seen before

I tried to assure his little being that I had no poisons on my flowers

Other than the ones coming down in showers

I wanted to say to this friend of mine

How sad I was that so many of his kind

Had died so needlessly and most recently in the northern parts of Oregon from

Glyphosate a most deadly poison

50,000 plus bumble bees died off from this tragedy

Countless more died unnoticed where they are

Along their flight paths and nature’s path

The bumble bee is a glorious bee with raiment of regality

His yellow silk and satin fuzz insulates him from high heat and cold

But nothing can protect my friends from sprayed toxins everywhere

Only gentle folks who care about little folks

Can be of help at all

So don you gloves and garden hat

Prepare your garden with love and natural remedies

For plants to grow well

Lawns to flourish and propel

Then all of God’s little creatures will be that much more healthier

Little children, and big ones too, can play and dance on lawns made with

Natural and good things for earth and man, and all of the creatures that dwell therein

Canary Migration

Tropical Canary

Tropical Canary

Tropical Canary

From here to there and back again

You fly a path that’s just begun

Thousands of miles you will fly

Only a fraction of your population will venture the return migratory trip

Like a precious jewel you are

Returning from afar

A shooting star set in motion

I await your flight like the star so bright

Only more so because you have a beating heart

And silky feathers

The down of which you line your nest

For the helpless brood set there

To be loved and raised by faithful parents

Who will teach you all they know

About staying alive and living well

To live a full life, full circle too, returning again when migration is through

Little ones not yet born waiting for their debut into God’s earthly view

Little babies, children playing, teenagers contemplating mysteries of life

Parents and elders singing about life, love, and freedom to laugh and live

The life of children living on earth

Bringing God joy with prayers and faithfulness

That all will be well so help us God

Wild and free flowing from headwaters of crystal clear purity

Cold as ice from the Arctic shelf made in heaven by God‘s own hands

Gently let loose from the depths of clean wells

Gracing natures hollowed out lava tunnels

Three Sisters and Mount Jefferson share their jewels of pure pools

Clean and beautiful hills and fields sprinkle between tall ancient pines

No lovelier place on earth is there than my beautiful Oregon Cascades

Whose ancient mysteries remain pure and pristine as God made them

These amazing photographs were taken in June 2013 in the Oregon Cascades on a beautiful spring day.  The Chemtrails were minimal, breathing was good except for a little irritation from allergies pertaining to toxins of the toxic brew.  The beauty of the area is so great that it makes much of the discomfort and allergies seem to dissipate in a vapor…

Monarch Butterflies move into spring and summer like the seasons…

Like a beautiful spring day warm and cool the Monarch sweeps into view like a silk gossamer miracle blessing everyone who looks upon them

It’s a love of butterflies within that cheers up the heart and brings amazement to wide eyes of the beholders of these flying gems in the sky lighting upon blossoms and circling children at play.  The first butterfly I recall as a child was the Monarch butterfly with it’s wide ample wings and stately flight.  This year I decided to paint a Monarch butterfly on watercolor paper with watercolors flying in a brilliant blue purple sky.  The finished butterfly came out as I had hoped, looking soft and silky with a satin glow, and a delicate nature about it that completed the work of art when I was done.

I love Birds and Blooms magazine http://birdsandbloomsblog.com/2011/03/12/make-way-for-monarchs/ …

They’re headed our way! The monarch is one of our most beloved butterflies, so much so that it’s the state butterfly or insect of Alabama, North Carolina, and West Virgina, along with several other states. Children study them in school, and National Geographic has featured their amazing journey as part of the Great Migration series. NASA even sent them into space!

filled with wonderful information and pictures of all the life cycle stages of the Monarch butterfly.

I wonder every year if I have enough beautiful flowering plants that will attract one of my favorite butterflies ever.  I must be doing something right because they come by and seem to migrate north and now I know east as well into eastern Oregon.

Painting the Monarch butterfly was daunting somewhat, I knew it would be with all the different markings, and specific details, the dimensions and proportions, ratio and so forth.  Love of the butterfly is what seems to emanate most from my painting.  Here it is and it is also in Fine Art and Poetry XI~ Morning Miracle Prayers Plus.

Monarch Butterfly

  monarch butterfly framed

Accompanied with it’s own poem in the book, this poem is separate and different:

Little golden orange silky one who’s flown so high and far

From San Francisco area to Oregon shores

Flutter like a golden light high into the sky

Into heaven’s realm you go

Than back to earth once more

Shining in your silky rays

Of downy soft feather wisps too numerous to count in all

Then up again you fly some more after sweet nectar

From lovely blooms that lay mingled along your long ardent trail

That leads you high into the Cascades to rest upon the evergreen pines

Before you rest to return once more

To San Francisco shores

Mustard Fields in the Country

What is that shining so golden yellow in the distance

A ray of light streaming across the earth

Streaming north to south

The brilliant hues of magnitude high up into the sky

Reaching orbs of blossoms into heaven’s arms

A gift of love from high above to those on earth below

Made and cultivated by the people to nourish and sustain

Mustard blooms turned into seeds that meet these needs of man

And countless creatures of the field like mice and birds for starters

The tangy flavor of mustard that comes in many flavors

Dijon and regular or mixed together

On a sandwich or in a dressing over organic salad greens

Always refreshing on a hot dog or a veggie burger too
