"yes I said yes I will yes"


Happy Bloom's Day. Someday I hope to be saying that from Dublin!

From Molly Bloom's speech:

...the sun shines for you he said the day we were lying among the rhododendrons on Howth head in the grey tweed suit and his straw hat the day I got him to propose to me yes like now yes 16 years ago my God after that long kiss I near lost my breath yes he said I was a flower of the mountains yes so we are flowers all a womans body yes that was one true thing he said in his life and the sun shines for you today yes...
...I was a Flower of the mountains yes when I put the rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used or shall I wear a red yes and how he kissed me under the Moorish wall and I thought well as well him as another and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him and yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will yes.

Hi Laura,

Happy Bloom's Day. Lovely quote.
An excellent portrait. By the way I think we all need to say the mantra -- to venture into this career is 100% brave. Your work is terrific.

Take care,

And yes...to your recent portraits too. They are wonderful! You capture so much with your seemingly effortless (no such thing, I know) loose washes.

Charlene Brown said...

You have captured James Joyce's expression perfectly (and, as Mineke mentioned, seemingly effortlessly.)

Cathy Gatland said...

Such passion! I've never heard of Bloom's Day, but yes, your portraits are loose and lovely!

Wonderful, Laura! I, too, hope one day to see Dublin. My younger sister has been there and sings its praises, but in the meantime, I'm singing your praises over another watercolor gem!
