Give me a sign

Give me a sign…because it’s 3:00 a.m. and I am up painting, painting, painting.  Six hours later the sign emerged.  Acrylic painting and collage with paper and burlap on found plywood. A nap, some photos and all is right again and the sun is out and it’s warm.  That is a sing(guess the powers that be wanted me to type sing instead of sign)…it fits.

    Oh my ! This person definitely needed to come out, even at 3am. LOVE the rough plywood base. those awesome blue patches and the sweet mouth – looks like she’s singing!

    She may be your insomnia muse. Very cool.

    Incredible Corrine! You have a fickle muse but she sings alright! I love this piece and your process.
    Sign me up!

    Absolutely enchanting, Corrine! I love the whole, but can’t take my eyes off that burlap! I want to touch it! If this kept you up all night, I would say/sign/sing, “So Worth It!”

    Corrine this piece is really something, it flashes out and has light, so bright and spectacular, it draws me in!

    I want to say it’s electrifing but what I hear next is grease lightning. It is lightning though, no wonder it kept you up at night. I wonder what he/she/it is thinking – or singing!

    Oh, Jo’s comment cracked me up.
    I’m an insomniac right now! So I can relate to looking for sings!
    I love that little patch.

    sweet dreams!

    What is this sing telling you?
    It’s tellling me that you are most definitely a creative person.

    Well she says she has a tool that paints brave colors and can tell a damn good story, at least that is what I think! Fabulous!

    Oh I hate it when I can’t sleep, but I’ve never been able to be creative when I can’t. Very nice! I love the textures!
