So it's like this - part 2

In April of  '16 I wrote this post   things were going well but suddenly I had an update to that post...  a stroke in Dec.

Once again, life as I knew it changed & my art came to a stand still. I closed my etsy shop.  After months of therapy I was able to pick up my art  supplies. I began reworking & experimenting with 2 pieces I no longer cared for, & liked the result.  I ended up making a few more mixed media landscapes. I like the simplicity of these pieces and the more subdued color palettes.

I still have trouble painting. Since I paint on the kitchen counter & stove top, setting up, painting, then cleaning up so I could prepare dinner, and setting up again - well it's just to difficult for me  these days.

But there is good news that has come from all this, & I'll share the news in a future post :)

mixed media abstract

When I was making this piece in 2016 before my stroke,
it had me thinking of deep space,
it was as if I were on another planet singing praises.

It's mixed media and acrylic on cradled ampersand.
I haven't listed it on etsy as yet.
