    1. Love those wonky circles myself!

      'Twas indeed quite a journey, through many highways and byways of myself. Always interesting for me to put in the dipstick and discover who I am at any given moment.

  2. I LOVE this, Dotty...and I love it when you jump in the water and play-"Splashing". But this one looks like a busy bustling train depot. Passengers are chomping at the bit to get going. It has color, energy and your character in it!

    1. Laurie, glad you like this piece! And thanks for your vote of confidence for my jumping in the water to splash around … or am I jumping onto trains without a ticket?! I'm grateful for your support. Love your seeing the busy bustling train depot, the passengers eager to get going, and my essence's somewhere in the mix.

  3. It is fascinating to travel with you and see where the journey takes you. Not where I expected!

    1. Talk about a mystery ride—it's fascinating for ME to travel with me and see where the journey takes me! Not what I expected either but this one is sitting in a frame on my dresser bringing me great pleasure.

  4. Yes! It turned out really wonderful. And I believe those other layers were absolutely necessary, even though you hardly see anything of it anymore (maybe even nothing). I think you had to make that travel to get here. Beautiful!

    1. Simone, evidently I DID have to make that travel to get here! I so appreciate your recognition and celebration of the process. Thanks!
