Feeling Grounded...with art

I wondered last week if I could ever salvage my "mixed media gone poorly."  Making several more passes at it, I think I have decided to call this one done.  The photo does not show the small ties of raffia on the sticks because I have to make the picture before I spray a finish on the canvas or I get a huge glare. And the ties, alas, had to be done after the finish.

Have you ever slowed down long enough to just sit and study the ground?  I am always amazed at how much can be found in such a small space of earth if I take the time to closely look.  Sometimes, when I am pondering deep and wide, I find myself picking up a stick and drawing patterns in the dirt or mixing up all the contents I've discovered.  And, left to my own devises, I often will begin arranging and re-arranging the sticks and stones into little no-nonsense patterns.  My wish is that you have some time to do likewise this weekend.  Enjoy.

Doodling in Color,

    I purposely made time to stare at the ground. There really is a lot there! So glad you encouraged that activity. It was rather relaxing. Ha! Who knew!?
