These are perhaps a bit sentimental but I do love them. The upper piece is called "Home" and the lower piece is called "Lead Me". They of course reflect the spirit and its connection to our lives and our meaning.
I use textures and marks to build up the background and then acrylic glazes, ink washes, fluid acrylic and full body acrylic paints are applied on the surface .
It feels awkward to speak of my own work but all in all, I can tell you that I am happy with these. Smiley face--☺☺☺

I reviewed Cassatt's work and felt that the work was about a 'snapshot' of idyllic family time/life. So now I had to go get an appropriate 'sweet' photo! ARGH... BUT in the middle of the night (of course) I realized that I had many, many, photos in my photo albums (who would have thought!). There came to mind a sweet picture of two of my granddaughters at the top of a flight of stairs when they had dug out some ballerina costumes and were ready to put on a show for us! Perfect!!!!
Now I do not profess to be a master at this type of work. I do not profess to have mastered impressionistic brushwork. But I do think it is cute and most of all---I conquered my fear and I did it.
Usually my posts are short and sweet but I guess angst takes longer....Sorry!
