Helen...this magnificent tribute reminds me of the wild white swans that glided in a marshy lake beneath my husband’s corporate apartment years ago...I would periodically fly in to cook, stock his freezer with Favorites and that would be my early morning view by the prep counter window overlooking the lake... it was magical, ethereal...and the white swan would be lost into the reeds of a new dawn’s golden shimmer. ..a memory bookend to this dark swan’s emergence from the wetland reeds into the moonlight!... breathtakingly beautiful...the eyes of my heArt momentarily suspend in DEEP TIME And in WONDERment!

HEY HELEN, BEAUTIFUL DRAWING & BEAUTIFUL MESSAGE. MANKIND SEEMS TO BE EVER INTENT ON DESTROYING THE ENVIRONMENT WITH HIS GREED. YOUR THOUGHTS REMIND ME OF THE STATEMENT BY 'CHIEF SEATTLE,'' CALLED ''THE EARTH IS PRECIOUS..'' WRITTEN MANY YEARS AGO, BUT CLEARLY STATING THAT ONE CAN NOT, OR SHOULD NOT, SELL THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT THAT WE LIVE & BREATHE IN DAILY..BEST REGARDS,VICTOR

Helen Duley replied:

Thanks, Victor. As some-one with distant Native American heritage, I always treasure that saying....and do try to live up to it!

I think what you do is beautiful and very unique Helen, there are very few artists who are prepared to devote lots of time doing painstaking work like this. It is stunning!

Helen Duley replied:

Thanks, Constance. Yes, I like to make each of drawings/paintings a work of meditiation into the natural world. each one is of a 'dreaming" ( as the Australian Aboriginal people say), of a spritual and soulful journey towards belonging

Helen Duley replied:

I have some mystic feeling about it, probably those delicious dark blue tones are so captivating or touch of fairytale here, but this work is definitely catching the eyes, Helen...

Helen Duley replied:

Thanks for your lovley comment, Jenny.
