Mixed Media

mixed-media-1-1

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.

I have thousands of photos (and don’t intend to stop taking more any time soon!), and have been wanting to try something new with them. Starting with a blank canvas, I worked at this piece layer by layer, knowing only the beginning photo I wanted to use and the quotation by Rumi that I love: “Let yourself by silently drawn by the strange pull of what you love. It will not lead you astray.”

I am happy with the way all these little pieces have come together in a cohesive collage.

Colouring with Children

The kids and I contented ourselves with pencil crayons and colouring books while waiting for family to arrive at the campground.

It was a treasured moment with children that are quickly growing and gathering new interests. It was shared time, quiet conversation, and the sweet simplicity of colouring within the lines.
