Dreamworld with a heart...

I painted this intuitively seeing the figures emerging out of random color application.  I love it when I can see things in the paint and then enhance them to mean something.  One of the figures has a heart, and I added the word peace, since that's something we're all looking for, right?  I think I have a different style of painting emerging! 

I sold a painting at the exhibit at Easy Street and I painted Dreamworld to hang in that spot.  Looks great there.  It'll be up on etsy shortly. 



The first azaleas of the season are in bloom!  I love Florida... 

And the lone red bud tree in the yard is blooming.  At least I think it's a red bud.


The neighbors have a horse paddock back there, but the horse was in her stall eating, so no photogenic picture of her--Sara.  I will take one though; she's adorable.  She likes me because I spoil her with treats.  Speaking of horses, check out this Youtube video about a really smart horse.

Maria, this is absolutely stunning!! I think you do have a new style emerging. Gosh, it's mystical, spiritual, fun, and contemporary all at once-- just like you I think!

Love it. (And I'm jealous of the azaleas... sigh...)
