Effervescence

Today I just let bubble up whatever wanted to bubble up.

Little happy pops of color and PaperMate Sharpwriter pencil scribbles, as it turned out.

I have referred to and have been using some of my recent pieces as bookmarks, but they hold their heads magnificently high as beautiful pieces of small framable art as well. One of my favorite pieces of art, purchased probably 20 years ago, is 1x3" and looks exquisite matted in its elegant 9x12" frame on a wall in my home; my tall-and-thins could easily follow suit.

Here's a second montage of pieces from my now-complete tall-and-thin series.

  1. I'm thinking Dotty style. Wondering what would happen if those awesome lines were white? purple? Or one of the other cool colors you have used.
    With each one of these, I have thought "this is my favorite!" And it is the same this time. So cool, and fun and joyful. A feast for my eyes! My favorite gorgeous blues, wonky lines and pops of fun color. You scored Dotty!

    1. Thanks, Sheila! This was a fun series. I didn't even really set out with a conscious intention to make a series, but here I am now with ten pieces!

  3. Hi Dotty! So nice to see all those colourful dots appearing on your bookmarks! (I am still laughing at the image of you at the library, asking for a matching book... by the way)

    1. Simone, happy to know that the colorful dots appeal to you—they're so 'simple' but they're so authentically what I wanted to paint : )

      Thank you for mentioning your ongoing amusement at the image of me at the library. I laughed again along with you—a welcome laugh on a way-too-busy morning.

    1. Thanks, Jen!

      Oh, yeah, hadn't made the connection that you do lots of tall and thin, too : )
