Before and after shots of painting I am working on right now. The bottom layer has dress pattern pieces, mailing envelopes, string and fine pumice gel which I scratched into while wet.
After it dried, I mixed silk paints and acrylics in gels to make glazes.
The lines that show through reminds me of sheet music, which reminds me of my daughter who is an amazing musician. Her piano playing can make me cry sometimes, it is so beautiful! I wrote a poem years ago that she inspired and dedicated to her with love from Mom!
"Piano music speaks to me - touches chords of my heart.
Sends them vibrating among my senses
floating on tinkling waves.
It is a language that is felt
a sweetness too keen
a softness so comforting!
I am swept from lofty peaks - on clouds of vibrant color
Quivering on breezes of sound
pattern on pattern intertwining with each other."
