Playing With Paper and Paint

That's  what's  been  taking  up  most  of  my  time  these  days.   Spring  around  here  has been  very  rainy  and  gray  most  of  the  time--so  I  had  to  bring  some  color  into  my  life--with  lots  of  happy  ones--thinking  Spring  in  my  house  if  it  can't  be  outside.

This  makes  me  happy!  I'll show  you  a  little  bit  of  my  process--

This  is  on  a  10 x 29 birch cradle board.  I  cover  the  whole  surface  with  my painted  papers  and  whatever  else  I  have  at  hand.  This  is  where  this  one  ended  up--

Thoughts  of  Spring....
and  here's  another  one  in  process

This  one  is  on  a  6 x 18  cradle board (one  of  my  favorite  sizes  to  work  with).  After  I  collaged  all  of  the  papers  on  to  it  I  sketched  my  design  on  it,  and  then  started  painting--  sunflower  girl--I  liked  her  so  much  that  I  put  her  on  a  6 x 6  canvas  also--

And  one  more --

My  happy  owl  scattering  some  love  :-)

Happy  Spring  everyone!!

so cheerful and inviting. I can relate to grey skies, it has been a rainy start to Spring in London Canada too. But your work brightened my day.

It's been far too long since I visited. Your art is as awesome as ever, and these latest pieces are a genuine treat. I love the one with the map behind the lady's face.
