hearts from afar


Mosaic woman and I have been busy placing our designs inside of hearts. Nothing new about that for we have made Valentines for each other, but now we are using glass and making them available for others to give to their lovers. The one above was inspired by a song by John Hiatt, Icy Blue Heart. And that that takes me back 20 years to a small town in Massachusetts where a friend and I talked music, mostly folk and alt country at that time. I have moved away from many a good person over the years, I miss you Mr. K, where ever you may be. I hope good music continues to flow into your life.... click to see John Hiatt sing Icy Blue Heart. "Shall I turn what has been frozen for years into a river a tears." I know how that feels and I know the kind of love that says yes to that question.

  3. I so enjoy lookng at your work. As a person who cannot make anything at all, I am having such fun imaging what it would be like to transform raw materials into art.

  4. zorra-- thanks, it is the simplest of the 5 heart designs I came up with, I nearly changed the concept mid-stream but held off for another day....

    Gannet girl-- glad you can (and do) read my fonts, but let me say I just don't believe you. A few times a year I take my art supplies to school and "force" my students to be creative. It is more about play than anything else... buy something and play. you will create something... a nice way to start is draw a circle, think of a friend in need of healing power and fill the circle in with color
