Solitary Seagull

a sea of silence
is pierced by a single cry
a lonely seagull

Primary Lines

Primary Lines #1

This is the first piece in a new series, inspired by a piece of blue, red and yellow painted cloth that has been pinned to my design wall for a few years. I love the lines and interplay of the primary colors in this piece of cloth, and I finally cut it up and started a new series of work that incorporates some of this fabric in each work in the series.

More Black & White

Yesterday I started working on the next two "name" collages. After I had the names printed in black ink on white paper, I realized that I didn't have any other black & white papers to include in the collages. Into the paint studio I went and painted some white papers with black paint. Above is a scan of four of the designs that I painted. I will only use one, or possibly two, of these in the collages I am currently working on, but the rest will go into my paper stash for future collages.

Black & White in the Garden

As much as I love all of the color that is emerging in my gardens, I also love the simplicity and drama of black & white photography. This photograph is a tulip bloom, taken with a macro lenses.

The Thrill and Agony of Technology

Tuesday morning I flipped the switch on my computer and nothing happened. Not a great way to start the morning. I finally got my computer running again late last night, but what a struggle!

On a much more fun note, I made two more name collages recently, one of which is pictured above, and I have orders for two more. That will make six total --- am I starting a new trend in collage art?!?
