Quote for the Week
To get through the hardest journey

at a time, but we must 
keep on stepping.

  Tack Down Tuesday 

We can handle this sm

#030617-A, "We Can Handle This", 8 x 8 Collage on watercolor paper, matted 2” all side to a 12 x 12 ready for a frame.


Materials Used: 140 lb Watercolor paper, polymer medium, found papers from my demo box, painted drawing paper, sanded and alter magazine paper, underlayment paper on my desk that has many layers of paint for leftover papers, wax crayons, turquoise blue glazing and charcoal shadowing, sealed with a UV Satin Varnish


Meaning behind the art:  When I came to my art table to start the Tack Down for this week…I was full of many emotions…not bad but not clear.  So I opened up my demo box that I take with me when I present demo’s and I just grabbed the first paper and that was Purple.  Not one of my first picks but I then grabbed the next, challenged myself to make a piece.  I did a turquoise blue glazing something I don’t every do.  Kind of going against the grain I guess.  So you have these elements you don’t normal work with and you see what creativity works.  My thinking started to clear as element started to connect I went into the flow with the thought process of “We can handle this,” and keep right on work with it.  Adding the purple in from the very start was a hope of playfulness for me. Using color with spring around the corner has me anticipating all the richness of the season.
