Depth and Deep, Never Sleep


depth and deep
they never sleep
always mingling with substance
gently submerging in presence
simply being with what is
depth and deep
they do not sleep
witness
beneath what is conscious
~

mulitmedia:
prismacolor pencils, napkin bits, acrylic paints, graphite pencils, a wee bit of stamping in a moleskin
journal.
so much fun to mix and mingle medias.... and a wee bit scary too, and so it goes.

    Dulce,
    lovely of you to visit

    Joei,
    Yes, light and dark
    like depth and deep
    goes on and on, well said dear lady.

    Faerie,
    thank you, I look forward to using real flower petals!

    Kiki,
    Thank you for your enthusiastic response to this post. So fun and supportive for me.

    Deanna,
    If you ever try multi media, do let me see! It is fun and also a bit messy.

    Marlene,
    This is my 2nd mixed media... I feel as though I have just begun to have a glimpse into the possibilities and how to use materials. So that means learning will go on and on. Thank you for enjoying the prose as well.

    Happy weekend to you all!

  21. Hi Tammie,
    This is so great ... they have different gazes! which keeps me looking back and forth from one to another and wondering of course ~ what they are looking at or thinking about.
    Very peaceful and lovely!
    Very best wishes,
    Barbara
