Jumpstart the Slump

[ View large to see the layers & stitches & tiny hidden treasures ]

Distractions everywhere.

Holidays, road trips and the reality of a world of unreal realities.

It's been too long since I sat down with my little golden paints, sewing machine, some old sheet music and just played. A friend sent a note saying "I've missed you!"
I know she meant "your art."
So dear that someone noticed. I must say -- - it feels good to look down and see such a mess on my hands. Gel medium and walnut ink stains, mixed with odd specs of metallic.

Exhale .. .. .
I feel better.

It's really true: Art Saves Lives.

It does save lives. That's a beautiful piece. Good to get back to what's familiar, comforting, and creative. Okay about that red DQ coating - If Trenton, New Jersey was a better neighborhood than yours...Lord help ya Mama!! (Actually I lived in the suburbs.) I am especially thinking of home today as the Inaugural train passes through - a very historic place.
Enjoy your creative weekend! Glad you're back safe and sound.

Always a visual treat to stop here to see what you've created. You sure have a knack and a style that is completely your own.I think that's called branding, huh? Awesome!
