I built this water shrine while during a hike in Ricketts Glenn State Park. There were a few already built in one area near a waterfall, so I started this one further down. Finding flat rocks and balance are the keys...also patience.

These are made from left over postcards promoting various art shows. Vista print likes to give a zillion postcards if you order an extra zillion for free. So I adhere several and make small works. Sold a number of them at Book, Paper, Scissors at the Free library of Philadelphia this past fall. Have named them Gentle Reminders. Many have a few words, like linger, or endure, swim up stream, as gentile reminders to well, do those things. Easy to forget in the rush of everyday life. They are a variety of media, hand made paper, tissue scraps, acrylic paint, seedlings, strings. Some have dimension others do not. The images you see on this blog are only partials of the work. Some will be on my cafepress site as cards. But that is not really eco friendly, I know...but no animals were harmed in the testing of these products, and we do need something to send to Aunt Zelda after her bunyan operation anyway. So how is the rush of your everyday life?

― May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude
This is one in a series of six mixed media pieces created with the motif of women and solitude. By solitude, I mean the type of reflection and coming to one's self without every day distractions and interruptions. Certainly not in a sad or lonely way, but a "contented with one's own being and thoughts" way...for me it is about refueling. Woman are often demanded upon and our time can be so fragmented that many crave some quiet time to do or not do as they please. To be away from the noise, the opinions, the news, the problems and simply think...to sort out all those many thoughts and ideas. For me it is bliss, and even though I love people and enjoy good company, quality alone time is essential to my creativity.
Title is tentatively, "woman cat." Media is gauche, sumi ink, magazine article, graphite, and decorative paper.

Images of my postal art project made in a mixed media workshop at Fleischer Art Memorial in Philadelphia. An inspiring and informative experience and one that keeps my fuss budget tendencies at bay. Oh, and learned a few truly "magical" techniques from the instructor. Yes, I love art class.

This piece is not quite finished but getting close. The event is next Friday and my goal is to finish by the weekend. It is comprised of a $5.00 chair from Goodwill painted white, cowgirl boots, a white jacket, the sleeve from a bridal gown found in a dumpster, a diaper, pantaloons from a doll and various laces as well as a tampon string. The trappings of females, what adorns us, or protects us, or gets us moving and up from the seated position. Was going to call it "Wing and Roots and Cowgirl Boots" but not sure about including the wings and that title is a bit too cutesy. Will possibly but tool around the seat as well, you know for dancing.
