This is what I see, on a lazy summer afternoon, sitting in the Adirondak chair on our front porch, sipping a cold glass of iced tea... or maybe a glass of wine. :o) Not a whole lot of ocean, but certainly a whole lot of nature. Mmmmm... I can almost smell the lilacs.
This doesn't do justice to these cute little vitamin E caplets. The reflected light in these yellow soft gels is so beautiful. But maybe I see beauty in them because they bring back pleasant memories. Like being in the 3rd grade and lining up outside the classroom at the water fountain for our daily dose of see through vitamins with the magical light inside. :o)
No painting last night, so once again, I'm going into the "when i have nothing to post" file. :o) This was done a few months ago, when the grass was green & there actually were little yellow birds in the sky.
The only woman blacksmith in London, England in 1928. Maybe in all of England. Tough as nails.
I bought a small book with photos from the 1920's, so all black & white. I love black & white photos. Another off night tonight... not too happy with this one, but I think it's more important to get used to the "not so happy" feeling than to continuously strive for perfection. I don't do perfection. :o)
These collages are new to me but there's definately something liberating about not having a set plan. The end result may not be a masterpiece, but getting there is heaven. As meditative as a walk in the woods on a crisp fall morning...
This one was done several months ago, so some of you may have already seen it. Instead of painting last night, I watched a movie, so I'm posting something from my "whenever i have nothing to post" file. Tonight, I plan on painting. Stay tuned. :o)
I found these words of wisdom somewhere in a book at one point, and thought they were meaningful. I made myself a little poster & it hangs across my drawing table, so now & then, whenever I need a pep talk, I read it & smile.
This started out as a collage but i ended up basically painting over the whole thing... I think it's important as an artist now & then to go out of our comfort zone. This happy girl is definately out of my comfort zone, but i must admit it was fun to do. Who knows where the next uncomfortable zone may take me?
