Lately I have been creating lighter pieces…friends and people who know my work have all commented on that fact. But today, I went a little darker. No mood change or anything. Just tapping into that which is always there for me. Something that is dark, but also beautiful, or rather something that stirs deep within me. It is hard for me to articulate in words.
It could be the dark days of autumn affecting my palette too. I am very affected by my surroundings. I have never been so inspired in my creations since we’ve moved to the pacific northwest. The trees, the air, the water, the mountains- all sing their siren song in my ears.

I created this panel using one of my photos, beeswax, cloth, paper, acrylic paint, ink, and waxed linen thread. I will bind this panel up into a journal next week. Tomorrow I am off to Las Vegas of all places! Last trip before I can’t travel anymore. Maybe I’ll come back painting sunny, bright, neon panels. Hmmm…most likely, not. 🙂
