for March were inspired by the beach..
it is funny how I can see one thing and then my mind
with something else..
a line of shells on the edge of the shore, reminding me
of ripped and torn paper..
and suddenly in my mind at the beach I was tearing and weaving..
a collage in my mind...
I am continuously painting, drawing, sketching, sewing and glueing things together
in my mind..
I wrote about a relationship
issue that I have been chewing on and coming to terms with
the changes ..
obviously still being worked out this month,
although healing happens..
it is still an excavation in process...
I find that when I have something really deep,
that needs chewing...
and my emotions are so moved..
abstracts are the best way to convey
I knew I wanted to use my dendritic prints and mono prints
on the page...
to express the depth of my emotion..
and the lines of attachments...
So after writing directly on the page, I began to gesso and then
to layer the paper..
it was tedious and meditative, all at once..
and dear reader..
the perfect words literally appeared magically on the page
circled to remind me
of my journey .....
Ingredients: gesso, pencil, colored pencil, mono prints, dendritic prints, antique book pages and papers, tissue papers, acrylic ink
If you saw my last video, then you know that
I am busy in the studio..
but also in the garden this time of year..
I am hoping my Easter lilies will be blooming..
So I am sending you all my kindest wishes for a lovely weekend..
may we all spread new seeds of love
wherever we go..
