Horizon, n.1. line where the earth and sky seem to meet.

Standard

Horizon 2013 003

The place where earth and sky seem to meet – the place  only the birds can reach.

“Horizon “

Watercolor, acrylic, collage, beeswax.  I used glued down crumpled paper, a bird’s feather, various gel mediums and texture gels, with a final coating of beeswax, on hand-made water color paper. 6 x 6 inches

September always seems to bring me back to life – I love the summer, but this year it seemed long and I spent a great deal of time staring into space.  Not really knowing what I wanted to do.  I did some sewing and that felt good.  I did some sketching in my sketchbook, a little bit of art journaling, and a lot of staring…Although I did have one lovely week at the Oregon coast with my family and celebrated my oldest birthday to date! haha.

Now September is here and I’ve started these small horizon line paintings which have been on my mind before, but never seemed to really get around to doing.  They are all the same size because I am using pages out of a bound blank journal that has this hand-made heavy water-color paper .

The feathers were a gift from Jan Brattain, Laughing Dog Arts.  Thanks Jan!
