Feeling Colorful

This week I am feeling colorful I guess. I had a vision of a design and ran with it. It fell in line with a topic of study given out by an online art study group I am involved with. This month's theme was "Water" and while this piece is very abstract it reminds me of a sun spray on the ocean. It reminds me of many things. I has a spirit, like as Sun Totem. I like it. It is bright. It is outside of my norm. I feel like the frame color was risky but I do enjoy the high contrast. Loving pinks with oranges and turquoise right now. Anyhoo, here ya go. Let me know what you think.

Like White Linens

I LOVE white lace curtains, tea stained ephemera and old crochet trimmed tea towels. I seek them out at yard sales and antique shops. I have made a few mosaics as of late that have this feel for me. It is a direction I am working towards. I would like to capture that essence eventually. At my wedding I shredded old white and off white fabrics and lace and created a banner to hang on the porch. It made me very happy.
