First day!

Gold 9
Actually this piece consists of 9 small canvas pieces 4"x4". Each one begins with layers of fabric machine stitched together in a circle of sorts. The fabric choices are varied...old paint rags, satin and cotton to name a few. Most have the addition of stones, some wire and all share paint and gold leafing. My heart was about the many layers and shapes of the human and divine. The imperfect within the beauty of color and gold...all becoming startling divine by connection and support. I like them all together but I have hung them in different ways. Selling them as one is a must $245.
This is such a grand day for me!!! My first ever post. I have plenty to learn and plenty to add but for a first day out, I have such a big grin on my face. I have been thinking and talking about having my own blog for the longest time. I called Gail on my server's list of consultants and she spent an hour and half talking me through and explaining options. I see her as my angel (we share the same birth date) because this old brain is slow and she was so very patient. Well dear friends, the adventure begins. I'm sure it will evolve in strange and mysterious ways very much like my art and very much like my life...thank you for joining me on this very first day!


  1. Yahooo! You are so brave! I love that you have a blog and I can see your work. I love the piece in the margin Morning Departure, and the many layers of your heart is a knock out!
    Bravo! I love having a blogging friend and I will bookmark Blue Sky Dreaming as soon as I finish this comment.
    I'll end with a quote I just saw that seems very auspicious at this moment- "I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream."
    -V V Gogh

    Love you!

  2. This is a most excellent idea! I've always said your words inspire me - not to mention your amazing artistic talents. I think it was Martha who said something to the effect of - when you stop changing, you're done. I love that you continue to evolve while remaining dedicated to your ture interests, your ture self.

  3. Wish I could have been there to see that "big grin" on your face, but I bet it's still there. Think your writing is great so not sure you need any assistance from me. If it wasn't on your blog, I'd know it was you ... if you get my drift ...

    Stay with your "human and divine" themes. That should resonate with many kindred souls! Most of all, CONGRATUATIONS!!!

    Mary Ann, I'm so inspired by your achievement that I want to get my own blog up very soon. The Internet is so democratic and fosters communication among such diverse and far-flung people. And now you're a part of it. Also, bravo for adding a price tag. Can you imagine having foreign country flags gracing your blog like the woman in Australia? And why shouldn't you? Now that the world is your oyster. I'm proud of you!!!
