Busy working like a fiend, but managed to finish this finally and get it listed. No journal page today, but at least some art and lots of writing. Hope you are all being productive:-) The sun is out and makes me long for spring, but that cold 30 degree temp is keeping me inside. This piece feels just like that to me. Longing for spring flowers on a bright, cold, winter day.
Misty Mawn’s latest piece inspired me a bit with this one. I love her use of white. She gets so much texture from a simple color palette.
I just finished the third in a series of five mixed media portraits. This one is titled, ‘A Mother’s Hope’. I have a lot of ‘mother moments’ going on right now, and it is very soothing for me to try and capture some of those feelings on canvas. While my oldest is in Basic Training, my middle is going to be a senior next year, and my youngest is still a sweet almost 7 years old, I have so many emotions right now connected to my children. I remember like it was yesterday, the hope of becoming a mother, and that oh so exciting day when I knew I would be! I love the soft look in this moms eyes, it reminds me of that time. I added a clock to represent the countless hours we spend in watch care over our children. ‘A Mother’s Hope’ is available in my etsy shop, www.thebagladysart.etsy.com
