Coyote (Animal Wednesday)

I took these photos of this very skinny coyote a couple weeks ago. I wish I had been closer and that he had
looked at the camera instead of away, but here he is. I have been spotting about one or two coyotes a month, The coyotes know I love them :-).
I hope you are having a great week. I will have some art to share soon, I have many collages in the works.

New Collage

I am painting again, or should I say I am working. I found it very hard to get a good photo of this collage, the second photo is closer, but none of them really get the true color which is pale pink and cream/yellow. Even with my light cube and photo shop I could not capture it. The detail gets all washed away, so I have included many close up shots and if you double click on the detail shot you will get a better idea of what is going on. Another day I will try for a better shot. I worked on this collage all weekend and had so much fun, trying so many different things before settling on this. I used a painting that I reworked and many drawing that I had done before I got sick, so basically I just had to put elements together until I found the ones that made me happy. This is a 20"x 20", Venetian plaster, oil, paper, ink, graphite, rust stained paper, stick, thread and cold wax on cradle board. I am thinking the title is "The Offering".
I have not done collage for years, so I am not very sure of my work, but I liked this and I hope you do too.
I am feeling the fire coming back and am starting a new piece today. I expect these collages to just get better as I get more confident.
I always love to hear your thoughts.
P.S. Due to all the spam I have been getting in my comments I am sorry to report that I had to put that awful word verification back in my comment section. I just don't see any other way to handle it.

I changed the name of my website so this is the new address: HERE
Thank you all so much who gave me input and made comments on the new site, I appreciate you all so much.
Still no art being done, but I am cleaning and organizing my little art room, so at least I can see what I have and I think that may inspire me this weekend to do a bit of painting or drawing.
Have a wonderful weekend!

New Website

I let my old, dusty, unmanageable website go a while ago and I needed to build my own. I found a free site and have been working for the last two weeks to get it done. It still needs a little work and I need to add some paintings to it, but I wanted to show you and get some feedback about what you think of it.
Go Here.

Have a great week!

Be Still

"For happiness, how little suffices for happiness!... the least thing precisely, the gentlest thing, the lightest thing, a lizard's rustling, a breath, a wisk, an eye glance-little maketh up the best happiness, Be still"
Feeling much better, though still low energy. Not getting any art done yet, but hopefully soon. Thank you all for your sweet well wishes.
Have a wonderful week. xoxo
