she’s my favourite painter too, but the lovely cherry simone is still out of action so no embedded links yet…

Humility, the beautiful daughter

She cannot do either right or wrong

She does not do anything

All of her ways are empty

Infinitely light and delicate

She treads an even path

Sweet, smiling, uninterrupted, free
