a new home

For this piece, thank you for purchasing real art! I love these landscape pieces. This scenery is all around me here in Va. Sadly disappearing, but there are still hold outs..

and more

Ah February, what is it about this month? It makes me crazy. I think it's like August, because it comes at the end of a long season. Anyway, been sort of working on some yarn love.

and I'm not sure what this is going to be yet, but it is shaping into something nice, I think.

this picture is hanging on the inspiration board, holes, tatters and all

Color, beyond what it is, it's the thing we all seem to have an opinion on.  I remember teaching a class and a student said she had hated the color green. At the time, it didn't occur to me to ask why, but I suppose it is because she equated it with an unpleasant memory. An interesting thought, to eliminate an entire color based on a feeling. One that may need to be explored, perhaps?

I can confess that color is an area where I tend to show absolutely no restraint.

Maybe something to consider in this month of colornessness.  To make work with no color or at least to limit the color choices.

But not here.
