I seem to be on a roll here and have some time to do it, so I'll show you another piece as well. I made this a few years ago when I was going through a really dark time in my life. That time seems like such a long time ago (thank goodness)! This piece is called 'Promise Mocked by Visions'. It started out as a piece not much larger than an ATC and is now 24 in. x 28 in. hanging on the wall above the computer in our office. It is not on the reddish wall anymore since we had to switch rooms around because of the girls. It now has 'Zen Garden' green behind it. I really enjoy matting and framing art and photographs. I sure wish I had a larger house with a lot more wall space to be able to do this more!

Your work is visually stunning and I'm in awe of all the colors, layering, feeling and depth that is represented just in this piece alone. I'm also in love with the playing cards below. Let me know if you ever get them printed. I would love a set. Thanks so much for commenting on my blog. It helped my find yours. I'll be back for more inspiration soon.

How cool that you mat and frame your own work. It's such a cool way to make sure your work has just the right "environment." This is a very powerful piece. And the girls' piece is perfectly matted and framed.
