I am posting a second piece of work today. I felt
a bit shy about posting this piece on my blog but
I have received enough support from my Flickr
friends to brave it. I am hoping this is my first step
into a new expression. I am working with materials
that are fairly new to me and with limited tools.

Speaking of the moon, I read yesterday that the moon
this month is as close to the earth as it gets. Cool eh?
Maybe that's what is messing with my computer this
morning, I keep losing my connection.

Yesterday's featured artist Judy Molyneux lives in a beach
town in California. That town was the next town over from
the one I lived in....Stinson Beach. That is how I knew of
Judy's work. I wanted to ask her to be involved in the project
so I began the search to obtain her email. Turns out she
doesn't even have a computer. This alone could get me going
on a very long telling of the story of the quirky town she lives
in, but I won't be detoured. So I sent her a card explaining
the project and gave her the question. I received a very quick
response, a note in a lovely book titled 'Molyneux'. The note
gave me permission to get an image off her website (which
as I said yesterday would not come up) and that was it. I was
disappointed that there was no answer. I hungrily sat down to
look at the art in the book and toward the end there was a
statement by Judy. It answered the question. That was what
I posted yesterday. I found the image at one of the galleries
representing her. Thank you Judy.

P.S. Spring Moon was formerly Petroglyph

Thank you Mary Ann, I have fun with my squiggles and lines, they are some of my freer times with these abstracts. Let the moon do it's spacey pull, I say, you will soon enough return with your feet on this planet. :>}

Jeane thank you so much for loving my new piece!!It means a lot to me. Welcome to Flickr, spend some time there and you will love it. I would say 70% of my connection here is from Flickr.

Dianna I could just hug you! Thank you so much. It will develop I am sure, I hope. Until then here is the first. Well not really my first. When I started my first pieces of art (after collage) were expressions similar to this. I was in way over my head!

Katherine said...

Katelen that is so nice of you to say.Thank you so much for your support.

Katherine, I saw Crow Speaks on Flickr and came hairing over here to read more about it. Crow speaks to me and I love it....a lot! Please write about your step into a new way of expressing yourself. It reminds me of some of the work in that amazing collaboration you did with Cindy Bilotti.

Robyn I promise to post a response to this. The work with Cindy is exactly what I would like to get to on my own. Thank you as always for your support.
