A small painting created from magic, with a new method and medium.
If you have followed me on Instagram, you would have seen all these images…
…sprinkled here and there, whispering.
They have now found a home together under the stars!

yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.

A tribute to my father
My father gave me two very precious things to my life:
One was unconditional love / support ; the second was the direction / acknowledgement to be creative.
Today, it is 3 years since he passed on to the other world. He is very much missed.
“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone can give another person, he believed in me.” ~Jim Valvano

Just a day ago, the most beautiful bird was brought home to me by my little friend Madison.
it’s terrible when it happens… any bird or creature. But it is the way of nature, a cats course…
What totally caught my eye was it’s refinement, the stunning delicate patterns!
It so impressed me that I took some photos of this flight-gone beauty. The more I looked, the more amazing…
There were secret markings and subtle worlds locked in it’s fabulous plumage.

I wrote about it in my journal and decided to do a sketch in it’s memory.
This tribute reminds me of cactuses & rocks!
“Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all.”

By losing a bit of control in our methods of creation ... *** Magic will then occur! ***
"The more sand has escaped from the hourglass of our life,
the clearer we should see through it."
