Making a Mark, Part 2

This piece was very satisfying and tons of fun to work on. I loved swinging between no idea and idea, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth.

Also loved embedding into this piece three e.e. cummings poems that I copied by hand onto tissue paper.

Its evolution:


  1. WOW! Spectacular! Love seeing the in betweens. On the left I see a woman, in that last little line of blue, she is next to a cottage tucked under the trees. Yellow candlelight is shining through the window. How fun it would be to live in an enchanted forest :)

    1. WOW back atcha, seeing an enchanted forest, woman next to a cottage tucked under the trees, and yellow candlelight shining through the window! I had no idea! Fun—thanks, Sheila!

  2. I see the woman, and she is dreaming as she is looking far off toward that arched bridge. Birds are in the air. This is a piece I can hear! Also, re "what cha up to" ...I crack up at the description of your morning -everything you did and got done. On a typical morning like that, most likely if someone said, what did you do this morning, I would probably say, "Oh nothing". I'm going to list it from now on!

    1. Well, where IS this woman—I can't see her!—and what is her name? Love that she's dreaming and hears birdsong.

      Laurie, thanks for the laugh at your commentary re "whatcha up to"—I really did laugh out loud!

    2. emailed a photo to you Dotty :)

    3. I see her—awesome! Thank you!

      She IS tiny, and her cabin IS hidden, and the forest IS huge—an old-growth forest, for sure : )
