A little information...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am currently caring for my sick mother and so, while I have uploaded some past works my new work will likely be slow in coming.

While life is not exactly the way I planned it right now, I wouldn't choose to be anywhere else.

I have created this blog to remind me, in the meantime, of who I am and what it is that I 'do'.

I hope you enjoy my 'stuff' as much as I enjoy yours.

Have a lovely day!

Angel in the Clouds

Mixed media

on Arches 300 gsm paper



I don't think this is finished yet.....
but sometimes you just need to leave things till they say what comes next
So, that's where it's at...

I too am curious to see where this will go, yet I love the streak of brilliance through the sky. :D

So true - leave it, till you know how to finish it!

Lots of love, M

I am loving the direction this is taking to be sure. you are right, sometimes you have to just contemplate what is there. I have just finished reading "de Kooning" and he would sit in a rocking chair, placed a long way from his easel, for hours contemplating what was before him...sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! This one is going to be a stunner, too!

I have been absent from the blog world for a little while, but I am back. Come over to my blog to see the surprise I have waiting.

Very nice work you have here. I have Cooliris on my computer, and after going through your blog and reading your entries, I loaded your pictures into cooliris. It's like being in a studio! Good luck to you and your Mom.

Wow. What an extraordinary piece. I really love the light, creamy yellow up at the top. It reminds me of light peeking out over your world...sort of like hope. Beautiful. Rest up and remember to find time to do whatever it is you do to take in strength. I imagine you'll need a lot of that taking care of your mom. I wish her and you well.

This is not yet finished! It's looks perfect as it is already. I wouldn't have known if you hadn't mentioned it. I love how you rendered your angel in flight in abstract form and the colors and how you applied them contribute to its overall appeal.
