~A Wrinkle In Time- Celebrating Textures~
Beauty surrounds us everyday and offers us even its' littlest of gift's with such amazement.... but only for eyes that choose to see it. It is all about opening your eyes up to those" little gifts" everyday and seeing the magic and beauty that it posses. I remember when I was first getting to know my husband one of the things that touched me about him was his ability to see such beauty in even the smallest of natures wonderments. One time we were standing by a huge hydrangea bush and I was taking in the scenery around me..( AKA the "big picture") when he looked at me and quietly and said..." Shhhh...Do you hear that?" (meanwhile, I am looking around me trying to find out what he is talking about) and he said again " shhhh... just listen". I then heard the sweet buzzing of those busy bees scurrying to collect every grain of pollen... some so full of pollen they looked like they were wearing" pollen pants"!! From that day forward I looked at things differently, paying special attention to the wonderful " details" that are woven into our everyday lives. Colors and textures are just a few "adornments" that fill our lives with diversity and excitement!

When out on walks or venturing anywhere for that matter I am always wondering what something would look like on a canvas or paper.. must be the" artists mentality" :) I love to sit out on the back deck and just create with all kinds of things.. Whether it is painting, creating jewelry or hand knitted scarves... the outside world is full with a richness that adds so much to the foundation of my work!
"I love to use many different textures in whatever design work I do!"
