Spotlight Art – Daruma Reflected in a Sugar Pot, Reflected in a Coffee Pot, Reflected in a Sugar Pot … or Happy New Year – A Painting by Phil McAloon @ acrylicphil

Phil McAloon's paintings

For 2022, I am putting my money on post hoc, ergo propter hockery, by including not one but two lucky charms in my last picture for 2021 … and including mirror images of both in silverware. Thus this portrait of a Daruma and a dangly lucky thing I picked up years ago, reflected in a sugar pot, reflected in a coffee pot …

Happy 2022 everyone, and may your God go with you.

Coffee or tea? No, Daruma.

Green Groweth the Holly by King Henry VIII (Attributed to)

Green groweth the holly,
So doth the ivy.
Though winter blasts blow never so high.

As the holly groweth green
And never changeth hue,
So I am, ever hath been,
Unto my lady true.

Green groweth the holly,
So doth the ivy.
Though winter blasts blow never so high.

As the holly groweth green
With ivy all alone
When flowers cannot be seen
And greenwood leaves be gone,

Green groweth the holly,
So doth the ivy.
Though winter blasts blow never so high,

Now unto my lady
Promise to her I make,
From all other only
To her I me betake.

Green groweth the holly,
So doth the ivy.
Though winter blasts blow never so high,

Adieu, mine own lady,
Adieu, my special
Who hath my heart truly
Be sure, and ever shall.

Green groweth the holly,
So doth the ivy.
Though winter blasts blow never so high
.
