Headwinds


2019 has been one of those rare years that has presented us with a collection of physical issues.
My husband refers to them as "headwinds".
Not an excuse for not being around, mind you but when given the choice of blogging OR painting...guess what I chose?
I have had a nice season with my art.  I sold a few and have had work accepted in every show that I have entered.  So, today I will share a bit of that with you.

This is a resin covered collage.  I call it "yikes!"

Another collage called "Pri-merrily"

And yet another collage called "Vor-text"

And then there is the painting I did one afternoon when both my husband and I were miserable

I call this one "pain"

So that about sums up the past few months.  I have been lurking about and enjoying everything you all are doing.  Wishing everyone a Happy Paint Party Friday.

And from the garden this morning...triplets!  I love it when that happens.

I think vortext is my favourite - old book pages are my favourite things to collage :) Happy PPF from Number 18 :D

Nice to hear from you, glad you have been successful with your art, deservedly so.

I would have made the same choice between blogging and painting. Such wonderful artwork. I am not surprised that you had a nice season with your art. The “Pain” is really quite emotional. The triplets flowers are special. I hope both of you are starting to feel better, sending good vibes.

So nice to see you again Susan, sadly we have had one of those years too. So thankful for the capability to create and escape from it all once in a while. Your art work is a delight to see. Thank you for sharing with us all, Happy PPF & wishing you all the best Tracey.

How wonderful that you can express yourself in painting and wonderful mixed media...You are an incredibly eclectic artist! :D I LOVE your expression of vibrant life in your artwork--especially when you aren't feeling so good.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful art Susan. It's nice to see how you express yourself in it when having all those different feelings.
I like your husband's description. Hope things are on the improve xx
