Wish you were here...

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)

covered bridges

This was painted from a photograph I took last summer at Fundy Park. I love Fundy Park. And yes, I also love covered bridges...

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.

happy girl

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?

flat rocks...

I had been away from painting for over a month when i did this one. I get really out of sorts when i go without the paints & pens for a while. They always bring me back to that sacred, quiet space...

By now, you know that I'll paint anything if I'm in the mood. I also pretty much eat anything... :o)

Dalai Lama

My attempt at a portrait in watercolor... 
As gentle as this man seems, I doubt he'd be too impressed.
And yet -  I know he'd forgive me. :o)

this Jewish woman is trying desperately to escape from the Nazis who are hunting humans in her home. One would like to think she escaped - but...

...so much for sparkles & rainbows. :o(
