Ready to Hang

Gentle winged creatures invite us into their simple, quiet lives in these wabi-sabi inspired artworks. Looking at these pieces is like taking a walk along a wooded trail. Scientific research has proven that nature has a calming effect to our inner being, and calm is what this art collage brings to any room it hangs in.

In this piece, vintage novel pages, Japanese text, scrap papers, and rice watercolor paper printed with a little sparrow mix with mulberry paper scraps (a Japanese style paper). Vintage linen holds a small scroll adding more oriental flair to the piece. Small twigs add the element of nature. Deep texture is achieved by building up the background in the same color as the 140 lb. cold press paper base.

The frame is included and is included in the dimensions. Signed and dated on the front.

Artwork is inspired by this verse of Scripture: “Even the sparrow has found a home; and the swallow a nest for herself. Psalm 84:3.”
(My faith permeates my life and finds its way into my art through symbols, colors, words, and objects)

I have always been a collector of things. I remember gathering pretty pebbles in a baby food jar, chosen from a creek that ran through the farm I lived on as a girl. Mom poured water in the jar to help clean up those precious gems, and we placed it in the porch windowsill where we could admire the soft beauty of the stones...the jar remained there through that winter, the frigid temperatures causing the water in the jar froze, trapping tiny air bubbles amid the pebbles - the effect was beautiful. I've never outgrown the wonder of finding the surprise of beauty in the ordinary rhythms of life. For me, my art and my calling to help others are an extension of my passion for gathering together fragments and bits of beauty from around my world... And that is what I want to help you with. To discover the quiet beauty and remarkable peace that waits to be discovered in the ordinary, commonplace, collected moments that color the masterpiece that is your life! {In expressing ourselves creatively, we are inspired and inspire others! Let art fill your home and life with inspiration and beauty!}
