Your Life


In between work, phone calls, emails, waiting for phone calls, during the last couple of days, I created art. And I must say I feel better than last week when I hit the Winter Blahs (That's a capital B). To be honest, I'm not sure really what happened. I had tried to finish this piece back in August, but it wouldn't budge. Then in September...and October...Then I put it away. It just wasn't time for this one yet. Suddenly, yesterday, I felt it calling me and retrieved it from it's hibernation space. I could hear it quietly say, "It's time." So I got out my paint, my gel medium, some ink and paper and got to work. And it came forth...gently...easily. I love it when that happens.

"Your Life" is now in my Etsy Shop. This is one of my favorite pieces so far. Maybe because it made me wait for it. It's the last of the group of 9 Pieces I started in the summer. Now, I'm ready to begin my next group of 9...Time Traveling.

P.S. My daughter pointed out that there is one element that appears in almost all of my pieces. Leave a comment and guess the correct element and I'll send you a surprise. <wink!>

  1. I love this piece, Kari! It's wonderful - so colourful and cohesive. I can see why it is one of your favourites. It was obviously worth the wait.
    Regarding the elemnt that appears in most of your work, it could be the bird but I think it is actually the heart!
