I guess I could have categorized this as ‘work‘! I’m often asked ‘how do you create your art’ or ‘what is this?’ So, I have begun to do a bit of show and tell over the years! Unfortunately, Fab40 is fickle when I attempt to load my tiny images. So, I’ll provide a link to each image I’m describing until I find a solution!
Indigo and Onyx: 8.5×11 Print:
Jade and Topaz: 8.5×11 Print:
Many of my images are a sort of fused combination of photographs, illustrations and computer manipulations. Though I have many line illustrations and paintings with no computer enhancements.
I began creating this first image, Indigo and Onyx, with a textile pattern created from some of my drawings and some computer manipulations, adjusted the color and added a photograph is some plants in a once soft translucent layer and turned it to a silhouette. I aimed for a contrast of distinct pattern and nature. I have a small series of this image which I also print in large format sizes and on a special photo film and use for lamp shades, or even fabric. I adore the photo film for use in lamp shades. The beauty and light that seeps through the image as a lamp shade is striking I often find myself just gazing into it...did I make that?
Sorry I have one of these print images in one of my albums and was not able to use it in this blog posting as I would have liked!
A woman from my hometown had a brother pass away recently. He had two teen children whom she has taken into her home. The mother is ill and unable.
So, this week: Two children move from a large town to a small town, from their home, from their mother. Still in pain from the loss of their father, etc.
Two other children gain new cousins as ‘siblings‘...share a tiny home, and their parents.
Four children adjust....
Two parents: gaining endless opportunities of love and joy and though I do not want to say losses~ There will be times of sacrifice through this adjustment, misunderstandings and overreactions and a lot of hard work. I mean, how do you do this? Each person involved is altered. Some will have problems coping to say the least. None of us come with a how to fix me manual. We are all so different and require unique solutions.
I can imagine ‘because I said so’s’ pertaining to rules of the house, etc. Over topics your own children would not dispute because they know how things work in the home. I imagine as many aching hearts as boastful hearts of times when you wish the biological parent(s) could be here too. (a first dance, a great game, a big hug from out of know-where) When seemingly un-noticed tenderness between the new children simply stops your heart. They are grateful, you are grateful. Are my own children this sweet to each other too?
I imagine a defensiveness toward both sets of siblings in a way that comes from the deepest part of your heart...‘don’t speak to MY son in that way’ ... ‘don’t speak to MY nephew that way‘. I imagine strained schedules, bright additional eyes at the dinner table, a few eye rolls. These are in fact teens. I see additional input at family meetings, positive voices and otherwise. Additional grocery bills and laundry. I imagine frustration and a swelling weight of responsibility, immense pride. A cheerleader’s chant from the team of parents of now four constantly enforcing: ‘We are going to make this work we are a family‘. I imagine hopeful moments of trying to fix little broken hearts and wondering if everyone is going to be okay. Yet, chanting and chanting away.
When the house is silent all are tucked in...maybe no one is even sleeping...I imagine feeling scared and so very blessed and all at the same time. I’m sure she would have these children no place else. She a great mom.
So, those are two 8.5×11 prints of your choice or 20.00 off a large sized print (16×20 or larger)
So, look around and see if there is something that you’d like or your sista might like!

Sunset Flo Print!(image description)!““:http://mwilson.etsy.com/
A recent listing on etsy~ I enjoy the layered textures and soft hues and saturated hues. Continued from my new series of patterns and nature...Orange wins again! I must share that cantaloupe was used in the making of this image. And, it has nothing to do with the hues! Do you know what it is? I laced some patina in the background...couldn’t resist!
This is a digital image compiled of my own illustrations, brushes and photos.
