" Time in Orange "8"x8" mixed media. Because it is the second piece in a set of 3, I already knew the all over color would be greyed down, silver leaf would be a strong element and the bottom section would be a collaged line marking system. The addition of the three squares around the stitched circle was a choice that seemed balanced after many other attempts. (thinking) The stitched circle consisted of layers of netting, lace and rows of stones. The process can be long or short depending on when I can say the elements speak of the vision of inner glow and compliment and work as one piece. This is not art from observation but rather from inside out, holding to both freedom and boundries.
Reporting on the afternoon in Carmel...great! Forgot the camera but that turned out to be okay. We had lunch in a sunny courtyard cafe and later drinks on the edge of a meadow. It was a day to include sunny observations, sounds, smells, some silence, some silliness, snacks, flavors and very few details. The day was brushed with wide brush strokes!
