Transitions, a Small Collage

February 16, 2011

Transitions – Collage with Hand Painted Papers,
Acrylic Paint Skins, and Japanese Candy Wrapper
4 x 4″

These few days have been splendid – just perfect spring days. The birds are singing their little hearts out and tulips and daffodils are poking out of the ground. I know this isn’t permanent. There will be more cold snaps. But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. I can’t wait to be digging in the dirt on a regular basis.

Today I started all of my tomato seeds in cups. This year we’re doubling the number that we had last year. And they are all heirlooms – a wonderful Roma, Cherokee Purple, German Pink, and Indiana Red.

Spring means evenly dividing my time between the garden and the studio. It’s my kind of life.

    Love the colours and contrasts here. Your life does indeed sound idyllic, so happy for you. Have just been up to Wellington to see a fantastic art exhibition of 19th and 20th century paintings on loan from the Staedel Museum. Just feel so energised by it, also by the fact our classes have started again. I seem to need to be kept to a deadline!

      Thanks, Sandra! Yes, can’t help being excited about spring. I want it to last for a while, knowing that all too soon we will have a hot steamy kitchen as we fire up the pressure canner!

      Sandra, I envy you a little with the classes. Deadlines are good for me too.

    Something about this speaks to me. I love all the layers and textures and how it seems to pop out of the page.

      Thank you, Fadwa. I’m happy you like this one. These are the ones I like doing the best — lots of accidental effects.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
