From the studio this week,
 With the weather a bit warmer then usual and our winters here in the mid-west less like our normal winters, Spring has had her presence early.  Officially on our calendar it started Yesterday March 20th, Happy Spring Everyone!  
I know I've been feeling the urge to get some clutter cleaning, fresh coat of paint on the walls and rearranging done. 
"Change"  I think it's what it's called 
and the renewal of life's Spirit too. 

This year I was accepted to be part of a gallery in Door County WI Woodwalk Gallery and they were just listed as one of the 10 best Galleries in Wisconsin...  what a great honor for them and I'm very excited to be part of this journey with them this year, Road trip!!! up in April for drop off of Artwork, Can't wait!

Well, with all this Spring Spirit in the air a workshop this weekend will direct my work week with preparation.  Heading to Lake in the Hills to Amber's Art Place  


Quote for the Week
Be humble at the mountain top, be strong in the valleys, and be faithful in between.
  Tack Down Tuesday 


Gray White Green Gold matframe

#032017-A, "Gray, White, Green Gold" 14 x 14 collage artwork, matted and black frame to final size 20 x 20, ready to hang on your walls.


Materials Used: 300 lb. Watercolor paper, polymer medium, acrylics, stained tissue paper, painted drawing paper with graphite and gesso, painted and gesso map page, graphite pencil and acrylics glazing, sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: I found myself needing to find my personal rhythm, this happens for me when I do a demo or teach a class or workshop.  I need to walk the woods and have a quiet time with all that happened, reflecting and letting go.  This is all good not one things bad about this and I’m very grateful I’ve found what works. I’m not always able to do the walks when I need them most. While walking this morning, I witnessed many things changing and happen, a coyote graced my glance with two different moments of a stare.  And then I saw Five Does out looking for the fresh spouts and a beautiful big Red Tail Hawk.  As I walked the second time around I witness an old tree top fall.  Heard the crack and then seen it hit the ground.  No wind so must have been super rotten or soaked with water. 

By the time I returned to the studio I wanted to make a larger piece and one with angles and a favorite color combo of gray white and green gold, which looks like yellow but still I like the relationship between them. I tried hard to stay away from red…I do know I slip it in from time to time, but not today with this piece. And it’s also another one for my healing circle series. This became more of a study working with angles and lines.
