Celebrating My Muses




for Sunday Postcard Art

This is 4 x 6 collage using a photograph I took in Little 5 Points last spring You can see the original in my Flickr Photostream August. 16. I enhanced the color in Flickr, trimmed the mask image, pieced the border from magazine and watercolor images, and placed it all on an acrylic sponged background.

It warms the cockles of my heart to know that some of you repond to my art. When you take the time to leave a comment or a suggestion, I appreciate it more than I can tell you. You teach me; you encourage me; you get me. I know that I am part of something larger that gives purpose to what I do.

Thank you

"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art...
It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things
that give value to survival."

The sisterhood of women is a powerful thing. We have the ability to uplift, to encourage, to empathize, and to recognize the value of mutual support. I'm so glad we're in the same tribe!
