yes, yes! looking and seeing with fresh paint! (oh, these eyes...) xo
The writing over the top is beautiful. Did you write that? Or is it transfer?
how did you get that vertical background? the bars look like Sanskrit...I've been taking a bit of a break from the studio and net, trying to get this amazingly disgusting house in order! should have gone house shopping after the auto-immune, might not have gotten a rambling old place with so much dust:)hope you're doing well - let me know!
The vertical pattern is writing that I did, and it was done first thing over the gesso, with a fine marker, then paint followed. It's a made up calligraphy 'language'!

Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts!
Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who come alive.
Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
