Lovely on a Vine

If you are so inclined him a little Guy Clark as you look at this one…

“Ain’t nothin’ in the world that I like better Than bacon & lettuce & home grown tomatoes…

Only two things money can’t buy

That’s true love and homegrown tomatoes” -Guy Clark

Fiery Sunset, Imagined

8″x10″ mixed media on paper

I have a very talented artist friend, named Helen, who has generously opened her studio and allowed me to explore acrylic abstracts and collage.  Working under her guidance has been fantastic because she is a wealth of knowledge of materials, technique, and design, AND she lets me play with all her cool stuff without my having to make a huge investment in a new medium.  

I started on a large sheet of paper and just played.

Then I cropped out a part I really liked.

It was really fun!  It was supposed to be an abstract, but an abstracted landscape magically appeared.
