Another drawing with scissors piece. On the left side of the piece I was trying to capture the sense of tumbling or falling.

Let Peace, Reign. (2022)

15 Dec

I don’t know about you, but I sure feel like our world needs a little peace these days. I am personally praying for peace in our world, in my community, and in my own heart.

This piece is part of a series of paper cutouts that I started a month or so ago. I am deriving such great joy working with this new technique.

Sherehe (2022)

Felt this new paper cutout abstract piece conveys the idea of celebration. In Swahili, one word for celebration is, “Sherehe.”

What a beautiful word for the beautiful human experience of enjoying & expressing life’s joy-filled moments.

This one is entitled, “The Bell Tolls.” I love the vibrancy of the colors and lines here juxtaposed with the black background. This piece delights me.

“Drawing with scissors…” work #5. Henri Matisse, near the end of his life & career, started creating art images from gouache painted pieces of paper & then cutting those colorful pages into shapes & designs. That technique has been truly inspiring to me. Really enjoying playing with my construction paper cutouts.

Fractured (2022)

This is a new piece. Cut construction paper on white card stock. Learning to make paper do what I used to count on my brushes for.

This is a mixed media watercolor and acrylic on paper. This piece came together nicely and as always with some happy little artistic serendipities along the way

A new piece. Charcoaled out the lines then painted them in black. Fed color in slowly working a fairly limited palette.

Another new digital media abstract art piece.  Wish time allowed for actual brushes & paint.  Soon I hope, but until then…
