A Fourth Something

All his life Scott's gift to me has been to open my eyes to see in ways they don't think to see on their own.

Happy birthday, Scott!

  1. I don't know if it was intentional but I love the window concept in this piece. A sense of going beyond what is in front of us. The whole world in a glance!

    1. Intentionally a grid, for no particular reason, but not intentionally a window per se. That said, so glad my intuitive play offered you a sense of going beyond what's in front of you to see the whole world in a glance. Perfect! Thanks for your comments.

  2. Just loving these Dotty. Love that this looks like stained glass. Reverence for artwork, and for Scott. LOVE your not really flowers :)

    1. Stained glass—must be the inner Dale Chihuly in me expressing itself! Love your perceiving reverence for artwork, reverence for Scott.

      The not-really-flowers have their inspirational genesis in the Ikea enclosure card you sent me once : )

  3. The grid is a brilliant way to make this piece more masculine! Was that intentional? A small change, but the art is transformed into something controlled, contained, organized. Like I imagine Scoot is (even if he isn't, I am perceiving him that way! ha ha!)

    1. Jen, totally love your interpretation of the masculinity of the grid. The grid was intentional, but as a way to bring something new to the little series I seemed to be making. Scott is the least controlled, contained, and organized of my (adult) children but he might be happy to have you see him that way!
