Love Is Blind
Bliss of Another Kind 12 X 12 acrylic, charcoal, oil stick, and paper on canvas for The Three Muses "Love is Blind" challenge.
This painting was inspired by the concerts in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens that I attended this summer with my sweet husband and our old friends Vickie and Bill, all of whom learned to turned over their ticket stubbs to me for the sake of my art. I used the tickets for texture along with concert programs from Emmylou Harris, John Hiatt, and Joan Baez. You can no longer see any of these souvenirs, but I know they're there, and that's what matters. That and the memories I have of those summer nights and the music in the garden.
