Away




Underneath the snow and layers of crystalline ice,
The water is still flowing,
Making its way silently,
  darkly.
Away, away,
Always moving quickly away.

non-speaking, speaking

Captured

laughing until I reach a zen moment, 
I remember to forget...forgetting, I remember it all again-
cycles of time, 
spoken out loud 
to my inner self.

Elmer's Glue Crackle Technique

I just learned a really cool and inexpensive crackle technique.
Paint your cloth or base. I used acrylic paint- what ever I have open or ready at hand. Spread on your glue and immediately paint with a contrasting paint.
Let it dry and watch the magic crackle appear.
easy!
Apply Elmer's Glue to painted base

spread glue with brush or old credit card

Paint without drying glue


Finished, Dried and Cracked Surface

Sense of Touch

     Ever notice how sometimes you just start to work and pieces fall together as if by magic. As if just showing up in the studio is somehow like catching an ocean wave and riding with it. And OH what a ride!
Sense of Touch completed
Yesterday I had just such a day. I put down a background and played with some collage materials leftover from another recent spurt. I ended up with 4 wonderful pieces. Sense of Touch is one. This will be an entry for an upcoming exhibit.

the starting point


detail
     I started with a manipulated and digital collage printed on a molding paste substrate. The surround is a combination of paper compositions created earlier and painted cloth. I overlaid parts with silk organza and stitched into the piece as a mark-making tool. 
      I feel I was definitely in touch with the energy of creation. A sense of touch.

in Holiday 'FUN' and the 'pleasures' of my studio.
I take myself out into the back woods- just under 50 acres with ajoining properties.
I can tramp around to my heart’s delight, creating mind reflections.
Being the age of my body and concerned about slippage, I take a stick cast off by a tree to steady me. 
Instantly, I am transformed into a Druid YoDa-like woman of the forest. 
Woman of the Woods
I am traversing looking for omens and other odd events to throw light on the thoughts harboring inside my mind. Do you see her in above picture?

Dare I Wander and Ponder?
The snow still beneath my feet,
Except for the occasional leap-
from my heart.
I tread a slow path though the woods.
stopping to stare and wonder. 
Stopping to gaze and ponder. 
These moments spinning


into golden memories.
