No. 32 Light Ascending

Wow I can hardly believe that it's been so long since I've posted. It sure hasn't meant that I haven't been painting because I am either painting, stitching, outside dyeing fabric or playing in rust buckets. Never a shortage of things to CREATE!!! Today this painting was just crying out from me somewhere and had to come out. There is always something about the connections of fields of color with these dots of light.. or just white. I find my self drawn to it. This incorporates my love of rust. There are seven different pieces of rusted fabric here and it harkens my love of stitching as well .. those white strokes... and it's about intimate connection. It makes me want to do more and more and more like this.. larger. Oh and see that lovely gray there .. that's natural dye stuff. I'm loving that gray. Going to do more of that too.. !!!

I'll just post an image of what I've been painting. I did a fun piece for a gallery that is doing a spring theme show. I called it Mother Earth in The Garden of My Heart. Red haired wild girl..

It was fun to paint the flowers and hair .. and to put a bluebird in the hair. There's even a dragonfly in it. So yeah .. maybe i'm all over the place .. but i'm having fun.

Let me know at if you are interested in either of these paintings.

Thanks as always for your comments .. they mean a lot to me.
