Tending the Flowers...and watch them grow!


Okay, it's not my actual garden.  
My garden is in the process of...WEEDING!
It was so pretty a couple of weeks ago, and all
of a sudden the weeds took over.  But pulling them
is good for the soul, so I've been told.  We shall see 
how "good" my soul gets!

The artwork above was inspired by one of my favorite songs.
Not hard to figure out which one.
 It's mixed media, using paint, pencils, oil pastels, vintage paper and
bees wax,
on a salvaged wooden top, from an old trunk, and measures 24" by 36.

My art changes directions often, I envision one thing,
but my hands create another.

Well I do need to get back to the "Real" garden,
before the rains roll in or I'll be making mud pies!

Be well!
