Nature's Art


This is a collage piece 5x7 on canvas board..It is made out of nature, leaves and bark, and grass and the paper that the words are written on it hand made paper from nature. So it is all natural.
LOL...
I have not posted in awhile..Life has keep me away from my computer and art does not seem to be in my world..
Taking care of my Mom seems to take most of my time. I am just very tired and can not find the strength or the inspiration to create..
I am not whining, okay maybe I am but it is just the truth..I am so very tired both my mind and body.
Take care and may you always dream in color....

I stare in the darkness toward so many absences

I know how you feel. The care of my 96-year-mother is physically and emotionally exhausting, but this piece of art is wonderful. I hope you find the time and strength to get back to your art.

Katelen, I love this nature collage - so textural and beautiful. Try to take care of you while taking care of your Mom. I take care of my mom, too; she's going to be 90 this coming weekend. I fully understand; sometimes we have to be honest with our feelings and wave the white flag even if it's just for a little while. xxoo

This is so pretty... I'm sorry to hear things have been so difficult with your mom. You are doing such a good thing by taking care of her. I hope you see that you are LIVING your art right now, in your compassion and patient care. The rest will come.

Try to take a breather for yourself when you can. Sending warm thoughts!

You go ahead and whine all you want -- try a primal scream while you're at it! Give yourself permission to concentrate on the job at hand; you'll still be "creating" in your head and heart and it will be there for you! xoxo

This is such a powerful piece, I love everything about it and the words are soulful, 'the hole in the heart of the poet...'
May you find all you need to carry you through.
