From the Studio

Vision Board 2 2

The Change is always upon us even when we don't see it and wish it had happened already. 

My vision board is larger and I like to work with it in section. Small segment to really grasp the concept of the images I've chosen.  The segment above is for March and April, and I ask why is the word Resilience in there? 

 I think for many of us having an attitude of flexibility and resilience many be a surviving and thriving advantage over the influences around us today.

Feeling limited in ways has it's pluses like resilience, a rebellion of a situation that is accepted and forces us to thinking differently and creatively to continue, because we must.

I had the experience of sitting in a Circle Way with a group of 15 woman, listening to them as we share how our week has been. The wonderful, beautiful, imperfect and messy bits of life has touched us each in ways our heart can barely handle. Our support in a RAW WAY-Real, Awesome and Whole, plus the  resilience is what seems to be a strong theme in life and in art these days....

Can we let imagination take the lead?  

From my  heartHeart  and with gratitude of single feather - Copy Spirit 
  thank you 

P.S. Happy Birthday Dad, March 5th

Quote for the Week
The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It's the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for it existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.

Collage Collection 

Sun Breaks Through_sm 2

#030518-A, "Sun Breaks Through" 8 x 8 piece of collage art with a 2” white mat to the final size of 12 x 12 ready for you to slide into a nice 12 x 12 frame.  


Materials Used: 140 lb. Watercolor paper, gloss medium, acrylics, painted drawing paper, gesso-painted brown bag paper, page from an old book, wax crayons, sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: I’ve been wanting to play around with a house theme and I’m not quite ready to move into that directions fully. I have a few things to finish up in the studio first. I do love Kandinsky's work with the energy of line and shapes. So that I don’t loss my thoughts and ideas and imagery floating around in heart and head, I decided to play around in the studio and create a quick piece.
