Collage on Canvas

Been having a good time with the series of houses and homes...Here is a process shot of where I'm at.  I have 7 house to put on the horizon line but before I do that I'm playing with the back ground behind where the house will be.  No great plan just wanted to make the gray scale homes with the black roofs....from there it will be me hooking into the intuitive nature of the process.  "doing something and reacting to it and then switching directions to see what else will happen."

Happy Mother's Day, 2018

From the Heart, 
8 x 8 
Collage on Watercolor paper,

The parts that it takes to be a mother is what it's going to take to make change in the, compassion, and a strong nurturing heart for all living things here and now and into the future. Let us think of our Earth Mother as much as our real mothers for this is where we can come together in spirit and grace of our hearts.  May we know what this nurturing truly is in all of us and allow it to spread faster then a wild fire. Aho~
