Sing to the Clouds
I'm going to show my piece for IA's theme week challenge. The theme is, "needlework." There are some beautiful examples of art inspiration for this theme in the post over at the blog. My piece is a simple mixed media and watercolor, about 4.5 x 5.5 inches.
I remember my Mom singing to my younger sisters, rocking them in the red rocking chair and watching her rhythm and singing in her Welsh accent. For some reason this image of a bird guiding the thread in the clouds at the end of a kite came to my mind. I added the cat for a bit more whimsy. The background is a result of the vertigo I've come down with, it was supposed to be a different pattern, but the dizziness took hold.
I'm going to step away from the blog for a bit until the vertigo subsides. With ear infections in both ears, the prescriptions have just started and I have to give them a few days to see if they're going to work. I'm sorry I won't be able to visit and comment on your blogs.
Tuesday a recipe will be posted and two more posts are also setup to publish automatically. I hope to be back soon.
