I am looking forward to my trip to Madison tomorrow for Hibernation Liberation. Here are some of my newest miniature paintings that I will be bringing along.
I continue to create mixed media works on paper, this is on of my most recent pieces. I've been playing around with different color combinations and shapes. Soft and delicate plant shapes keep popping up in my work. My favorite part about this type of experimentation is the evolution of my technique as I learn new ways of using materials to create the effects I want to achieve. This one is now complete. I look forward to framing it in one of my husband's handmade frames.

"Dancing Leaves" is from a particular childhood memory. Its a memory I have each fall, as I watch the wind blow the leaves from the trees. This memory is of one fall day that I was outside, alone, left to explore my surroundings. I remember being particularly fascinated by a pile of leaves that were continuously picked up by the wind. I watched these leaves for some time, swirl and dance around me. I wanted to capture the playfulness and the magic of this moment in this painting with the fun and colorful dancing pink leaves, but I also wanted it to portray something deeper. I painted the contrasting black sun to represent mystery and balance in life.
Finding balance is something I strive to do each day, and I believe it will be my focus this next year. What do you hope to accomplish in 2016? Please share in the comments below.
