The Bluebird's Bouquet

The Bluebird’s Bouquet

Hello Art Friends!

Its been some time since my last blog. I have been dealing with the death of my father and care of my mother which has reset my reality but has also brought many blessings. Painting everyday has helped center my world and kept my inner voice alive.

The Bluebird’s Bouquet is my latest mixed media work created with many acrylic layers and constructed hand painted paper elements. It grew out of the sky first with a tone on tone sweet pea vine growing into the blue. A bird often appears in my work and this fellow became the creator of the bouquet.

My largest work to date at 30×30 inches will be hanging in my good friends home as a birthday present commission from husband to wife. Have a look at some details from the painting. Enjoy!

    I’m so glad you got this beautiful blog going and let me know about it.
    I’m very sorry for your loss of your father. I really agree with you that art, and sharing art is very grounding and healing.

    I’ll comment more after I have looked at everything. That’s a pleasure I’m saving for when I’m over my current crunch time. I have to select, mat and frame, and figure out how to ship a bunch of art to Dallas for a retrospective I will have in September.

    You have done an amazing job of putting all of this together–I’m inspired already.

    Take care, Ruth
