Happy MOTHer's Day
I found this lovely moth illustration in a vintage nature guide and just had to use it. The background is writing from an old post card and the tree branches are actually photoshop brushes called 'Winter Branches' that I downloaded from 'Room 122'.
There are two things in my life that have been constant, no matter what: art and the need for unstructured time to play. I am a compulsive maker-of-things who believes that every day must have some time set aside to feed the creative spirit. This would include making art, looking at art, reading about art, experimenting/playing with materials, learning new skills, and general studio art-play. To support my habit and spread the joy, I have been an art educator for 38 years. I have recently retired from public education. I will try to share some of my adventures in both art and play here in this space.
