Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn. They teach you there's a boundary line to music. But, man, there's no boundary line to art.....~quote by Charlie Parker ~

Black And White ATCs

I created these for a swap Black And White swap at http://www.atcsforall.com/   but they weren't the one that were sent off to new homes after all.  I chose others to fly. I should have taken a picture of them but alas I forgot. They really were much better.

White ... is not a mere absence of color;
it is a shining and affirmative thing,
as fierce as red,
as definite as black....

Be as a Bird

She Has Wings

Be as a bird perched on a frail branch,
that she feels bending beneath her,
Still she sings all the same
knowing she has wings.     ....by Victor Hugo

This is a mixed media collage on a canvas panel. Size is 5 X 7. Bird is a photo on a cloth background fabric and rubber stamped leaves. Stamp was carved by moi (me).  Sheet music is from scrapbook paper.

I love that quote, and I wish I could be as a bird with my art.

Sunflowers in Woodland

Ever since we moved to our new home, I've been fascinated by the fields upon fields of sunflowers that are grown in our area.  Here are some photos I shot during a drive along the country roads near my home.
