quiet strokes...living more soulfullyMay 14, 2011
all photos and art pieces by me
Creating and living more soulfully
go hand in hand for me.
When I feel full of hope and energy,
When I feel lost and weary,
When I feel a divine presence,
In between? A lot of praying and creating.
I am now in the mood for quiet strokes
and want to share some new
mixed media by me inspired by
the tranquilty of oceans,
the hushed tones of nature whispering,
and the poetry of my sweetest dreams.
16x20 mixed media on canvas
(duct tape, acrylics, ink, and SECRETS)
A beachy union jack I surprisingly favor.
Though I have done other Union Jacks
since EVERYONE is crazy about 'em
(shoe-ins to sell), this is the one I like for myself
(but still for sale!!!!).
mixed media abstract pair (WAVE) with vintage dictionary pages
3' x 4' textured acrylic abstract
Couldn't snap a decent photo of this baby.
Tones are muted blue-greys, cream, and umber,
but it has layers upon layers of texture my camera
cannot capture with the light available.
a square LOVE piece on wood
and a small 8x10 collage on canvas
textured little 8x10s on vintage book covers
piece on right was created with a secret chemical process!
the LOVE SQUARE in more detail
Quiet strokes of lovely
is a prescription for myself as
my health is fragile at the moment.
The gift of creativity is
oh so very welcome as I recover
my energy, my RAWR, and my peace.
Sharing it with you helps me heal a little.
It's not a secret I live with Crohn's disease,
and this flareup is but another bump in the road!
Good thing I am gifted for making
inflammatory bowel disease so SEXY and CHIC.
thanks so much for stopping by,
and i hope you'll click follow
and leave a comment so i can
follow you back.
Peace to you right where you are.
