Squeak Carnwath

"imagination is the mind's freedom"
I love this painter, and first saw her work when I was living in California.  I found this video on my morning's internet wanderings on the blog, Painter's Bread.

try's mine
I used to worry I was scared
I used to believe life was unknown
I used to wish I was carefree
Then one day
I looked out my window
and saw a tree
a stark
perfect tree.
I nearly choked
on the epiphany
we arrive inside
an envelope
of bones
there is nothing to be done
about this
so fill it with persistence
let it brim
with success.

happy valentine's day

three beets
three carrots
a hunk of ginger
and some chocolate chasers

more nest building

here's a look at how things begin
these are small, 6x6"
I am using a metallic ground again as a base layer- its a dark bronze
I love the creamy white on top, almost edible
