Sending good vibes out into the world

The Creative Center recently had a "friendraiser" /fundraiser at University Settlement . Called "Got Art?" artists from all over the country & world are asked to send small 4X6 pieces of art. This years artists were also asked to make jewelry . I decided to do both-(and found myself in trouble deadline wise as a result-word to the wise:leave lots of time if multiple pieces is the way you plan on going)
Shown are my 4X6s-many of which will be in next years show as they did not dry in time due to the humidity we got hit with.
I am putting this series in "Spread The Love" because the works were made with great love and were meant to be sent out into the world to spread good vibes, happiness ,wisdom & healing. All of the pieces are dedicated to my mom, Edith. She has been (along with my dead, Bob) one of my biggest artistic inspirations and it is from her that I get my love of color, design, pattern & love of all sorts of materials.

Irish Blessings

With Saint Patrick's Day just 7 days away, I have been researching Irish Blessings.
They are so sweet and simple and comforting:
Wishing you always...
Walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain
And tea beside the fire.
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire

4 days away...



I have often thought about the statement: "heart of gold". As an artist, I take the words and depict them symbolically, literally and figuratively . In the late 1990's I created a series of projects that combined the heart of gold concept with the idea that cats had 9 lives=the idea of 9 hearts=if you indeed did have a heart of gold I imagined one's heart would get broken and so one would be in need of "spare hearts of gold". While the idea lingered I have not actively worked with it until last night when I threw together the idea pictured above.
