acrylic, leaf collage
This is a scrape that needed a death-bug-eaten leaf as decoration. I see a blue-haired lady in a ball gown. Twirling around. With a leaf. Yep.
8″x8″ acrylic on paper
The title of this painting is from one of the hashtags for an arts-based celebration (Minuet MANY Unity Celebration) scheduled for tomorrow in opposition to the Iowa Minutemen (militia) meeting here this weekend. Does the painting have anything to do with it? Not really, but it’s on my mind, so it’s what came to me as I was considering a title. Hoping for the rain to stop so the youth orchestra can play on the capitol grounds! #MinuetsNotMilitias #WaltzesNotWalls
acrylic, marker on Bristol ATC 3.5×2.5″
I did a little “leftover” scrape of paint on this and embellished with a few markers while listening to “All Things Considered” yesterday. Another mass shooting, another day of ridiculousness in Congress, another death of a musical icon of my earlier life. Falling.
