the Power of Three






Lorrie's and my visit ends in the AM as her plane heads back to northern CA at 7 in the am. Also going with her are the most amazing series of mixed media pieces  that  she created this weekend.   They started with ideas long held  in her head  but  She had never had the  time to bring them to life. This weekend everything seemed to just flow together.    All  3 are based on her poetry which  she writes on a consistent bases in her journals. I was blown away as each one was produced  and would love to keep all of them for myself . But I know more  will  be coming  . When you have a creative break thorough like she had this weekend  you kind of need to keep the pieces close to you for a bit to absorb the process of creating and visualize   where you want the next step in the process to go. I am so  happy to share these images with you and to have visualized the making of these pieces .  When  she gets a larger  collection going I hope she will be posting them on her etsy.
