24,25,26,27 Faces of 29


she gazed at the full moon
letting it touch her heart
her spirit
with her eyes they danced
a sacred dance
one on earth
the other in the heavens


the top two are envelope art
that i sent to two lovely artists

do you ever put art on your envelopes?


Every once in a while
i have to draw gratitude, prayer, namaste


in flight
angels
hearts
 spirit
birds

a mix of all the above

Look to the Light


look to the light
light of the spheres
universal light
internal
eternal light
she exists 
to point to the sphere of light

she loves to dance for him
he loves to take her dancing in
to his heart through his eyes
that is simply how it is

this piece i did with a dip ink pen
this paper is quite smooth and i realized 
that the pen likes to slide on ahead of me ;-)
always something to learn

Tiny Fae


little man of the woods
sitting on a mound of earth
taking to heart the purple trees
life is as it should be
~


I am taking a watercolor class with Wyanne
this piece is a wet paint on wet paper piece
oh my
one must be patient
each step seems to have to dry 
before i can go on to the next step

it feels a bit:
mutable
spiritual
ethereal
watery
loose
impressionistic
to play with watercolors

they supported connection 
with the spirals of her world
