What You Seek

  
This new mixed media piece was just finished today! Created with vintage dictionary pages and various ephemera and found objects in a vintage drawer. It also includes one of my favorite quotes by Rumi, “What you seek is seeking you.”

Happy New Year!

Where does the time go? Here we are at the beginning of another new year… I hope that 2016 brings us all happiness and health and wealth and wisdom and everything else we may desire.

It amazes me though that 2015 almost seems like a blur, and again I must say, where does the time go? Time is definitely a relative thing, and I love this quote on the subject by Albert Einstein:

“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”

So I guess the most important thing when it comes to time is not to worry about how quickly it passes, but instead to think about how you want to spend it. I think I’d rather sit with a pretty girl…

Happy New Year and here’s to time well spent!

Small But Mighty

Words are a powerful thing… These pieces are no bigger than an index card, but hopefully they pack a punch. They’d make a perfect last-minute gift (only $18 each or 2 for $30 – more photos available on request). Created with vintage paper, ephemera and salvaged wood.

Musical Memories…

trombone

Vintage sheet music for trombone found at Brocante Market! I love using sheet music in my art but this brought back memories… I played the trombone in middle school. I remember lugging that thing around wondering why I had chosen it as my instrument. If I had known then how cool playing the trombone could really be (see Trombone Shorty), I may have continued to play…

Custom Work…

This custom ordered piece went to its new home the other day! Adapted from a larger piece I created, this version of “Unpathed Waters” had been requested to give as a birthday gift. The “canvas” used was a vintage wood and galvanized drawer and little elements were added to make the piece more personal. I love creating something knowing who it’s for… The next custom project centers around coastal Maine. I can’t wait to get started!

“Bella Vita”

“Bella Vita” or “Beautiful Life” – this piece was created by enlarging a vintage glass slide. The original slide measures about 4″ x 3″ and the image is Venice, Italy. The background is vintage sheet music. The frame is an old wooden ice box door from a local fish market that closed. It was painted white but the natural wood is so beautiful I had to sand the paint off… The finished piece measures almost 3 feet square.
