There's a lot of newness this week. In addition to busily working on the new artist series that is launching on Monday, I've created a couple new art pieces. The mixed media piece shown above is titled Lovebirds in the Moonlight. I was inspired to create it after pruning our filbert tree this week. Filbert trees have lovely little yellow blossoms in long clusters that dangle from branches. In the artwork, I wanted to keep the branches sparse-looking, so I reflected the blossom design in the stars.
The other piece I completed this week is called Sea Garden. The blue I used for the background reminded me of the ocean, so the work evolved from this perspective of being under water.
