Lavender Fields ~ WIP

Work in Progress

Here’s a sneak preview of what I’m working on right now. It’s a wood panel that had a rather rough surface so I collaged text pages and papers, napkins, tissues, and much more over the top, adding paint and embellishments. I’m still in the process of creating this piece and plan to add actual lavender with lavender oil to make it an interactive piece for the senses. My mom’s bathroom is lavender and yellow and I thought of her while making this painting so I might just gift it to her when it’s completed. I like the fact that the background has multiple colors and textures and is done on vintage text pages from a book from 1945 by Louisa May Alcott.

I was unable to post yesterday as I had an eye appointment and I still haven’t recovered from the abuse my eyes went through. I was without my glasses for nearly two hours and it wrecked havoc on my eyes so I came home and took a nap. I fixed dinner and did some word puzzles on my Kindle.. then I watched The Voice … my favorite as of last night is Dia Frampton. She has an amazing voice and a great look. Then I watched America Has Talent and was blown away by the guy who’s been washing cars for the past 15 odd years. Amazing stuff. And OMG I adore Howey…he’s truly a breath of fresh air!

I need to head out and start the dinner process soon, I just wanted to touch base to let you know why I was MIA yesterday. I get my new glasses next week so I’m ULTRA excited that I’ll be able to see clearly now the rain is gone! I’ll post a pick of my new specs when they arrive. Until tomorrow… God Bless you ALL!
