“I have a weakness I scarcely dare to avow. [It] consists in preferring rather mournful aspects to all others, low skies, solitary plains, discreet in hue, where each tuft of grass plays it’s little tune to the indolent breath of the wind of midday… I wait impatiently for the bad weather to come, and I am already negotiating with a seller of umbrellas. I assure you that bad weather has more life than good.”
-Pierre Puvis De Chavannes
Art lives everywhere. I don’t think that we have to wait for rainy days to make art however, I think that it’s finding art in rainy days that is just as important as finding art in the joyous days.
Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

I love the connections between Puvis de Chavanne and Willa Cather.

That’s news to me. Are you speaking of in her writing? I’m glad you commented because I got to google her. lol She’s new to me. I’m going through a book and it only refers to the painters and not much outside of that.
