Quote for the Week
The secret to being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of every day. 

  Tack Down Tuesday 

Contained Happinesssm

Contained Happiness Framed

#052917-A, "Contained Happiness" 8 x 8 piece of collage art on watercolor paper with a 2” mat all sides to a final sizes of 12 x 12 framed ready for your walls.


Materials Used: 140lb. Watercolor paper, polymer medium, acrylics, gessoed and painted drawing and Kraft paper, graphite pencil and acrylics glazing, wax crayons sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: Grounding myself after a wonderful week up North with some special ladies and the hosts of Dillman’s Creative Art Foundation…I went to the white paper first and with lines in my stash of papers. I was reflecting on my trip some time back to Milwaukee Art Museum where I saw the Kandinsky exhibit. Playing with the lines and layering the paper always makes me happy.  And I cut up my big piece of paper I made up there and brought in some piece of it in this collage.  The rest of it went to my journal covers I’ll be making in the next few days.

Book Club Artist July 7th-August 2nd

A gathering of artists, who share their creative life, spirituality and books. 

Art is a portal. Through it we can explore these mysterious depths, see the beauty of our world more clearly, understand ourselves and other more deeply, and realize the gift of our individuality. Like walks along the river, making art is a journey of illumination and possibility, pregnant with potential for ourselves, those we touch, and ultimately, beyond.
