born a princess

a princess to life
embracing pleasures
as well as strife
dignity must reign sublime
open to seraphim

It is so interesting to learn multi media art!
To take a drawing that feels good and to tear the face out and adhere it to wood,
then to mess with it, layer after layer
well it is a bit scary, fun and exciting.
I had no idea where I was going with this, she unfolded day after day
glimpse after glimpse
feeling after feeling.

to enjoy other wonderful art!

    Hi Sharon,

    Fun to hear your thoughts about my poetry. I suppose the words really do guide you to look at the art through my heart and eyes.
    Often a poem will arise as I work on a piece and the words guide me each step of the way. So interesting, like a living spirit in the art.

    lovely Monday to you all~

  5. She turned out so wonderfully Tammie! Full of emotion ~ I love to see how your art unfolds every week.

  15. Fascinating transformation ... to me it looks like every risk paid off. Sure can understand how the process might be nervewracking, though. Am curious: did you have some vision of what you wanted before you began, or did you discover the vision as you worked?
