Found an old pocket watch and took out the gears inside. Then I did a collage paper/paint and put it inside with a reminder that "time flies, breathe deeply." I added some watch gear and charms for more interest, and a heavy chain. I've been on a kick to honor the woman within, so that's why there are so many women in my art right now. We've got to honor ourselves...

In the series of Living From The Heart, I made another collage with paper and paint. This one is called Friendship. I don't know what I would do without my girlfriends who are always there for me. This is to celebrate you all!

Living from the heart is the only way to go in my opinion. Everything else is exterior fluff and busy-ness. It's a bit of a challenge to live from the heart but well worth the effort (or non-effort really.) When we let go, we go with the flow...
This is a mixed media collage with layers of paper and paint. The hearts are made from polymer clay and painted. Can't have too many of those! :)
It's a 12x12" canvas with deep gallery wrapped edges. For sale on Artfire. (Click on my artfire icon in the sidebar.)

Got some pictures of flowers that I have in pots along the walkway. The pink butterfly look-alikes are Cleome. They are sooo beautiful, but the flowers last about two days. The Geraniums go on forever, and then I have a Fucsia that is really pretty. The picture is a bit blurry alas. Going back to my art, but how can I create anything that beautiful? Impossible, but one can strive...
