poppy seedpods

playing with poppy seedpods .. sketching, collaging, experimenting, contemplating ..

quietly lying within a shell that
supposes a layer of separation

loudly bursting to a freedom that
was never reliably in question


earthly inspiration

had a lovely weekend collecting various treasures from mother nature for inspiration ..

found a great squared off collection box for holding my found seedpods ..

it tells me that autumn is approaching fast ...

displaying lots of my found treasures in my art studio window ..

treasures ..

found a little treasure at the thrift shop .. a china dish with indentations just perfect for my dipping pen .. lush

a lovely rest with arty companions :)who are never far away when I am playing with paint :-)

Inspired by Graffiti Art in London

Inspired by Graffiti Art in London

Spend a lovely Sunday wandering the streets of the East End in London .. And lots of graffiti street art to oogle at

There is something about the raw fragments of society that are colored with artistic expressions that draws me in ...walking trough a grey on grey city the riot of Colorado asks nothing less than my full attention .. and then asks again for an emotional response ...

And when I come across nothing but the leftover bits of decay from pigments long gone...I feel a renewed sense of a cycle doing exactly what it is meant to do .. Feel alive..
