Twenty-Nine Years

Buildings could burn 
right next to us in the car, 
and 
if we were in the middle 
of a kiss 
we wouldn't notice. 

Jane Hamilton, The Book of Ruth


Hey, L&J, buildings are burning! Right next to you!

Happy anniversary : )

    1. Carol, thank you. Love hearing what drew your eye, i.e. simplicity and matting. This was a found composition within a larger piece. Once I extracted it, I added just the slightest touches to (a) create more contrast and (b) deepen color in approx. 1/2 square inch. Matting was great fun, as I tapped the treasures in my paper scraps collection.

  2. It looks like the typography of a kiss! An aerial view of love!

    1. An aerial view of love! Love that perspective, Jen!

      Hmm, I'm guessing you may have meant topography, not typography—a typo which perhaps came either from dictation silliness OR the challenge of tapping a keyboard from a great distance with a lonnnnng-handled brush : )

      No matter, I think I may have to paint something new with the notion of the typography of a kiss in mind.

      xo!
