What's on Deena's Walls?
24"x24", canvas, acrylic, mixed media by Deena. The first on the left is titled "Exploring Mystery" the white one is "What is Hidden" and the third is "Finding Me". I'm not sure of all the materials but I do know Deena is an expert at photo transfers so if you have any questions please ask. I am asking Deena if she might host this blog in the next couple of days so be on the watch and give her a bloggy good welcome!
We met well over 10 years ago in a Julia Cameron "Vein of Gold" study group. There were six of us and the leader. After this course, five of us decided to carry on as an art support group. We met regularly for years and sometimes studied a book, sometimes just shared and supported one another...there was wine, laughter and tears too. Two members moved away and one member, our dear Annie past away and then there were the two of us. We have carried on and what can I say....it is a deep abiding friendship that far outreaches art making and yet has also stayed on track, supportive with art play. I am 15 years older than Deena and we have very different lifestyles but again....the friendship continues...we will be friends forever.
ADDED NOTE: If you are interested, Deena has left a comment stating all the materials used in these beautiful pieces. Check it out. I have asked and she said yes, and will post this weekend as a special treat!
EXPLANATION: In the loss of our Annie, came the sweet addition of knowing her daughter Patrice. Patrice( also an artist) and I had an art show together with a blow out opening...live music, catered with amazing food and drink, flowers and a 6foot banner outside the gallery of our happy faces announcing the show!!! We spilled out into the street and I believe in some circles they are still talking about that night! Patrice has a blog and has also left a comment! AND Annie's sister Pat (also an artist) regularly leaves a comment so watch for her as well!
