Canvas: “Splatter”

Sometimes, I am possessed by a bit of crazy and I do something like a massive splatter painting using only a liner brush. This is one of those pieces. I had speckles of paint all over me for days, but I love all the layers:

The old, pale pink wallpaper had been removed, as had the white curtains, and the glass chandelier (a cleaning nightmare) was on its way out.

Mom, Dad, and I spent a whirlwind of a weekend painting as though our lives depended on it.  They needed a drastic change, and that is exactly what they got:


They got a new light fixture, and I love it so much I may confiscate it if I ever move outta here.

A Star is Born

I was never a little girl who wanted to grow up to be a ballerina, a princess, or an actress.  Nope, about third or fourth grade I went through my very own “what-I-want-to-be-when-I-grow-up” phase.  The careers I most considered were marine biology, meteorology, and astronomy.  Yeah, I was a bit of a freak child.  Though I went on to do none of those things, I still have a deep fascination for the sciences, especially astronomy.  Have you ever seen any of the images sent back by the Hubble telescope?!  They’re like massive, richly colored paintings, displays of color and light out in the great vastness of space.  Anyway, I was inspired to create a piece based on those miracles of space, namely nebulae, where, quite often, birth is given to new stars.

Spirit of Kaye Lee

A couple months ago, I read The Shack, which began slowly but turned into quite a powerful read for me.  At one point in the book, God allows the protagonist to see people the way God does:  in color and light.  Ironically, I had discussed such a concept with my college roommate when we were seniors.  If we saw each other as color and light, what colors would each person be?  What if our souls, in fact, did appear in color and light?  Anyway, after reading the novel, the first person who popped into my mind was my dear, beautiful friend, Kaye Lee.  An extremely talented artist filled with intricate thoughts and a layered personality, I have loved Kaye dearly since I first met her.  She is color and light.
