Paint Party Friday and Haiku My Heart



WIP ~ Collage Goddess



Another WIP ~ Collage Goddess II




The above collages are 2 of a series of 4 Collage Goddesses that are a WIP (work in progress). They are created on artist canvas with acrylic paints, specialty papers, clay, and other ephemera. The face still needs to be worked on with pan pastels and more fine tuning will occur as I progress with these two pieces and begin 2 more. I may create more when I have made more faces.
My haiku are below ~ Enjoy.

Haiku My Heart

haiku

ah, cool breeze streams in
humidity, history
 to come again soon.
-o-


mother nature rules
how like a queen on her throne
lovely surprises.
-o-


loving life you have
focus on breeze wafting in
or sometimes away.

  1. I especially love the handmade paper in your collage--being the paper nut that I am. :)
    Never heard that quote before. Love it!
    Have a great weekend. :)

  2. Your collages have a mystical quality about them Carol. Those clay faces draw me in!

    The weather here is much the same as yours. We had a lovely day of 77 degrees and no humidity, after weeks of it...a welcome break.

  29. The first one especially touches me today. My son has moved from Oregon to Indiana this week. Temperatures are triple digits. There is heat lightning. AND - humidity. A soft breeze must be such a relief.

  41. Love the collages--especially number II. I feel like that's something that should adorn a front door or be placed somewhere in a garden. It's pretty in a very natural way.
