Cycle Write blog serves as my memoir tablet of things I’ve seen, things I’ve done and things I dream now and later.
This mixed media painting, A Shimmer of Watery Flower Dreams, is both art and a memory fragment. It’s art done and gone because I have given away this piece as a gift, to a family member.
Yes, this painting includes faint impression of a leaf plucked off the ground and pressed into purply perpetuity, by my printmaking roller along with other watery hues. The shifting colours are like brilliant water lilies that lie perfectly still and then, tremble along the water surface with the gentle breeze. Their huge lily green pads cradle and carry the bright pink and yellow lily blossoms above the water surface. But actually no, the blossoms rise up from the muddy lake bed and unfurl their petal loveliness to the sun and admirers.

Now, it’s an infusion of water lily colours and dreamscape –like wispy, cloud colour bursts of sunset settling along the water. A dragonfly flits about -a drifting wisp with glass wings and shining body. Moments I love to capture forever.
