Here comes the sun as George Harrison sang…I made this sweet 6″ sun on a downpour of a day last week. It will eventually be part of something larger, but for now it makes me happy just having on my sewing table. Don’t you love that bright batik! A tiny project it’s true but more […]
Through the winter window; a view to the barn. Morning light, flinty and just barely enough. Late light fleeting seam of weak sun disappearing in the west. Light we hunt for when the days are short and sometimes gloomy. Gathering all the sunbursts inside to hold for spring. Collage, marks, digital typography. Linking to […]
Embracing my word for 2016 “connectedness”. Big changes are afoot. Fresh face forward, new ideas, connecting the dots, connecting the stitches , connecting my creative life all in one place. Stay tuned. I’ll leave you with one last post to AJJ for the year. Now that 2015 is just about all “boxed in”.
I had a wonderful visit from my friend Damini this weekend. She has a large installation in a show “Forces of Nature” at Plymouth State College and we headed up to the artist’s reception.

Black and Almost White. Typography and ascemic writing. Doodles. Spiralling down into relaxation, see you in a few.
Be willing to let go. Be willing to expect the unexpected to show up. Be willing to try anything. Be willing. Just be willing to let go. My mantra of late, a daily affirmation.
Found drawing in my collage of a forest sprite. Simple black image on a painted and collaged background inspired by the hint of a lettuce leaf from a magazine edge that formed her hair. Watercolor paper, scraps of painted paper, vintage book pages, kraft, acrylic paint, uniball black pen, gelli printed fabric. Wind, rain, thunder […]
Fall is a coming as I mentioned on Mood Monday and the air here this morning is decidedly cool – YAY! I know many of you love the summer heat, but it’s not for me so I welcome this change. As I move toward this new season I am continuously reminding myself to Get Out of […]
Sweet sprite, full of love and light, bringing joy with her innocent expression and funky wing…..I want to feel like her, light as a feather, the world far from her shoulders and a twinkling in her eye….what can she be thinking?
