visitors to our little cottage garden
have been wonderful (art) inspiration & each spotting is as magical as the first!
It's hard to believe that in a city garden you can have Coyote/Crows/Fox/Owls
These 4 are painted on wood and embellished with ribbons and trinkets, but I am working on turning the images into cards :-D

I always wonder about the origin of the beach glass/mermaid tears I find along the lake.
What was it before it shattered and the water took it for a journey … softened its jagged, broken bits and returned it to the sand?
Looking down at a handful of gathered coloured glass, rubbing my fingers along them and turning them between my thumb & finger is a walking meditation. Peace & Serenity in my hands.
"What were you, before the water took you by the hand … what lessons did you need to learn before returning to the sand?"
Walking a new painting into existence.
Last week, along with beach glass, I found some amazing "talking stones". I refer to them as talking stones as I see very clear images in them that speak to me. They are utterly fascinating... A crow with open beak, polar bear, bird, mouse, a woman … (images can be found on my Instagram). That day I had a very heavy gathering bag :-D
I have had lots of ideas floating around and have been happily painting away.
I won't be adding any new pieces to my Etsy shop this month which is on Vacation Mode starting today until November 1st, but "making waves" will include a few pieces of beach glass with every print.
to each other
this is how
