It is unusual for me to paint with acrylics onto canvas, but here is one I quite like. I collected bits of paper that would otherwise have been thrown away during the third week of April 2009, and collaged the background with them. Then I layered in the homes, trees, and scrolls in acrylic paint. My love of trees has steadily grown since I moved to the coastal rain forest Living amongst trees here is two-sided: it is extraordinary to walk beneath them and hear and feel and see the life they are and the life they bring; then to see them, large and small, slashed and bound onto logging trucks headed for unknown and far off People purposes. I generally try to stay away from an agenda like this in my art, but I started thinking of this rhyme and couldn't get it out of my head until I painted it. The little tree on the left with all the leaves signifies new life, new hope.
In other happenings, I have been busily preparing for my first art/craft show booth! I am very excited and nervous. I will be having a space at the Astoria Sunday Market in Astoria, Oregon. It is a farmers market and art/craft show held downtown on Sundays, and runs throughout the summer months and just into the fall season. The first day of the market season this year is Mother's Day, May 9. I have a bit of new work that will be making an appearance there, will be posting them this week.
deep within the world we know - beneath the seeds we all have sown - beyond the corner of the eyes - of those that always ask us why - in the place from whence you feel - there behind the turning wheel - lies a world of things we've all half-seen
the way is hidden yet plain to see - ready for those who long to be - in the Land of Folklings here with me.
