People Choice Award!

Who would of thunk my first entry in an art exhibit and I won The Peoples' Choice Award?! It was put on by White Rock Art Council and Community Center. The theme was Spring Flowers.
Walking through the exhibit I noticed most were big, framed pieces............. then my little one! You have to admit it does pack a punch!
Ahhh spring  the time when all the little flower party dresses come out and do a little jig!!

Sister Nature lending a hand to Mother. The inspiration for this piece came from the background paper. It is a Tim Holtz gem indeed! Hundreds of old beat up licence plates, eye candy for sure. Then I started to think about all the cars they came from and all the cars that are on the roads throughout the world. How much we abuse Mother Nature, her battle is unfathomable, yet she will persevere.
Sister Nature is one of her beautiful helpers, she stands tall with branches reaching up. Sending love into the world to heal and evoke change.

Madame Butterfly

Presenting...Madame Butterfly! It was a lovely sunny day in White Rock and I was looking out onto our sprouting garden. So much lively activity happening. I watched our little Chihuahua, Zoro, chasing a magical white butterfly and was thinking from Zoro's perspective, what a wonderful sight it must be. I've been drawn to the butterfly recently, I'm always adding new works to my Metamorphosis Series. This time I had visions of flowing hair against a stark background and the only real vibrant colours coming from the ever so fascinating butterfly!   From this, Madame Butterfly was born.
