They're Baaack...

Well, what can I say... my little birdies are back. I wasn't sure that they were gone for good anyway. They are quite different in this new series of mixed media pieces and I am having a lot of fun creating them. So far, they range from 4x4 to 6x6 inches. Super fun! Here are a couple of pics... Some of these are listed on my Etsy shop and some prints are available through my Society6 site.

Surprise!

Yesterday a friend sent me a message to let me know she saw my art on a Cloth Paper Scissors blog. 


What??? I love that magazine! A few months ago I thought I would post some of my work to the CPS website for fun. But, I had no idea... so I went to www.clothpaperscissors.com to see what my friend was talking about. And sure enough... there it was... one of my paintings in a blog post about mixed media painting! Pure excitement!

Quiet

Well, it has been a while... the time and space away has been more out of necessity than desire. 


Life is so unpredictable and changes in a moment, when we least expect it. 

We get into our routines, our daily comings and goings and then out of nowhere like at a railroad crossing, the gates come down and force us to stop, abruptly. 

This one was very abrupt. 

As difficult and painful as it can be, I have to believe that there is something more powerful here (and beyond). Something greater to take away from all of this. Something to learn. Something to be grateful for. Something to strive for...

Toward the end of January I was thinking about what my next word would be. Well, here we are 18 days into February... my word chose me this month. Quiet. Even though there has been so much going on there has been an overall sense of stillness, of being introspective and quietly sitting with my thoughts.
