And so 2012 starts peeking its nose around the corner of 2011 and we notice it's presence there.  What are you looking forward to? What is your sense of this incoming year and the blessings or trials it may bring? Whatever your feelings, always remember, every trial is an opportunity to learn, and to receive the good that is in it; no matter what :) in love. trish
I for one cannot wait for encausticamp; I anticipate it's awesomeness, despite the trials it puts me through :))) This, and my trip to Australia!

and so 45 begins~

I painted myself a picture

It is my birthday. I am 45 today. I painted my self a picture. And it is beautiful. I will do it again; over and over. I will paint my self a picture~until my last breath thank you God almighty.
when one door closes~

through the open window

ancient way

unfinished; do I get rid of the small white imagery? is it too distracting? (Still listening to this one and the following~)

take away the bold fabric? edge with same turquoise panpastel so as to unify? remove text altogether and just allow the plaster, scraffito, wax and eventual panpastel to speak? (first two attempts at working large 24x24 in this series~)


in love. trish

4 hours~

of walking on Thanksgiving. 
I visited the tourist areas, I saw flea markets with things that made me smile.
and trinkets that brought back memories from another life.
and trained hands busily working the effusive sand into fabulously, fragile masterpieces.
I walked along a long stretch of well cared for beach front
with Senor Frog and his friends harkening to the pocket books on one side, 
and patina'd, weathered sculptures and  bright gardens holding court 
before sandy beach and ocean on the other.

And I didn't take pictures...
I imagine these places are cataloged into thousands of trip journals and portfolios throughout the world.
I didn't take pictures until I began to get lost in the streets and stairs of the city.
And then I couldn't stop 
at the marvel and wonder of what the PV'ers get to experience every day if they choose to. 
The architecture is a wonder and delight.
And grounding. 
I walked for four hours.
And found my feet again~
in love. trish
