This is a collaged piece I did back when I was in college for my Color Theory Class.  I have always loved it and thought it to be very soothing.  It is all about nature and the images within the piece  itself.  For instance, on the left it looks like a sillouette of a lady with a hat on.  She certainly might be there as an observer of the nature around her.  That came to be by accident as it was not planned.  I like  the way I positioned the butterfly at the opening of the shell and just overall I thought this was a fun and unique way to incorporate nature in an otherwise abstract picture.   I'm thinking of submitting it in with my other painting at 5 Rivers in June.  They are two very different types of art, but a nice contrast both depicting nature and how we choose to observe it.

I hope you all had a wonderful celebration of "Mother's Day" yesterday.  Mine was spent with my two daughters as we went out to a tea room and enjoyed each other's company.  No kids, no husbands, and we all agreed it was the best mother's day we have had in a long time and vowed to do it again next year.

Looking foward to viewing everyone's blog later today.  You all inspire me to do more and better play.

  1. Peggy! This is gorgeous and I see it as perfect for 5 Rivers. I hope you decide to submit it! The colors are wonderful and I, too, can see the lady in there with her hat! Mother Nature perhaps? Sounds like your Mother's Day was happy; that makes me smile! I've been sick with a nasty bug but starting to feel a bit better now. The whole weekend was lost but it's ok. Everyone is fine.
