"Facing East" measures 18"x18" on Rives BFK, collagraph collage, acrylic, stencil, oil pastel, paper collage. This is the third of the intended four in the Compass series. The compass will continue in new work but with new challenges, different techniques and materials. I'm working on the fourth now and thinking I might take a turn with yet another Oasis series. It helps to go back and forth for me, as a way of staying fresh . It's summer now, feeling warm and lazy and I have some stones and pebbles that might best express the barren landscape of a warm summer at a shady oasis.
Listening to Nina Simone and found this prayer I had written just before I came on as BlueSkyDreaming:
As I step out of my safe place in my safe chair behind my safe quiet screen I ask for assistance, blessings for my journey That I might walk and wander this desert planet (Internet) finding safety, pleasures, sustenance and joy I am not alone I am not alone and it isn't too late.
I had a wonderful father and I think of him often especially on Father's Day. I hope your family brunch, barbecue or dinners are full of fun with all the fathers.
