I stop here, resting in I-don't-know.

  1. Well you are certainly out of no-mans land. Sometimes just turning it around, changing colors, and adding dots makes all the difference!I love the pattern on the right with all the lines! Some how blue-jeans comes to mind.

    1. Thanks, Carol! Love the blue jeans imagery that you see!

      I was grateful as I tried this and that to have my fiddling move me out of no man's land. When I stopped, I wasn't sure what I thought of the piece other than to like it more than previously, but it quickly grew on me, and I'm surprised and delighted to discover that it works really well in and makes a pleasing contribution to Core Values as a whole.

  2. It is beautiful...and a bit haunting with its barbed wire edging.

    1. Thanks, Jen. Yeah, that barbed wire, not sure where it came from!

  3. I love the expression: 'Resting in I don't know'. I think that's the best starting (and ending, and being)-point for a painter ;-)

    1. Thank you for reflecting this back to me, Simone.

      I am always grateful when I rest in I-don't-know.

  4. This looks huge to me. 36 x 36, or even wall sized. The effort and time you spend on these miniscule masterpieces is so inspiring Dotty :) This makes me think of Cat in the Hat fun. Those scratchy black, messy fur like marks. The dotted path that I want to follow. The floating, tumbling, playful atmosphere. LOve it!!!

    1. Sheila, thank you! I love that the wonder of a computer screen and the internet allows me to create a little 6x6" patch of paint that I can deliver to you in seconds as a wall-sized masterpiece!

      I also love what you see in what I paint. The Cat in the Hat—yes! I totally see it!
