"The Kiss of the Sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's
Heart in a garden,
Than anywhere else on earth."
Dorothy Frances Gurney

This is the collaged canvas that I showed yesterday. I worked all day on it but not sure if I love it. Don't know why. Sometimes, things aren't just quite right and I can't put my finger on it. Maybe Mattie Lou created this---then, if so, --- it's just right. I actually think she did. No offense, Mattie Lou, I just didn't recognize you for a minute there.
Mattie lou is my little child artist inside. No, I am not on medication for this. It's an art thang...

Ann said...

I think this is absolutely beautiful! And, no, I don't think you need medication! ;)

I just stumbled across your blog today. So glad I did! :D

This is wonderful Martha, it has an innocence about it so maybe your inner child did paint it, LOL. Tell you inner critic to be still - I love it.

Dear Martha,
I LOVE near God's heart in a garden!! ...and I so totally understand your "mattie lou" moments that it's scary...
Did you read "The Artist's Way.." by Julia Cameron?
This girl is my favorite of yours to date!!!
