Winged Greetings!

Hi there dear friends...
I'm a bit under the weather and also very busy at the moment, and I have no time for a more structured post. So, just to say hello after some days of silence, here are a few new paintings for you to enjoy.
They are part of a collection where I used a single palette of colors and similar papers (including family papers with the names of my ancestors)... By the way, have you recognized that with tiny red flowers? Didn't you think I'd throw it away, huh?? ;)



Thanks also for all the wonderful support about my art through your emails. I've been an artist all my life, but only now have realized the healing power of art... how much I need it in my life... Hope it brings you joy, inspiration and healing too. It looks like this move (with all its problems, delays and 'downs') was exactly what I needed to become more intentional and grow in my art, as well as in grace.

On a completely different subject, I'm sorry that so many of you are unable to leave comments on my blog. Thanks for pointing it out, but I also have problems leaving comments on certain blogs... it must be (once again!) a technical difficulty of Blogger.

This week, I'm sharing my art with:
Thanks for hosting your beautiful parties, ladies!

  14. Dear Monica. Thank you for stopping by & leaving a little love letter for Elle & I. Sorry to hear you have been having a few "problems". But, your art has truly grown & changed. The direction is wonderful. Maybe this move has been good. Elle is sooooo funny. Such a little clown & such a little trouble maker (soooo NOT like her sweet sister Reba). She has decided to start digging. Not once, twice, but, EVERYDAY!!!!!!!! I think she's looking for China. HUGS! Charlene
