My husband thinks I’m a witch! LOL


OK, to be fair, he’s not entirely off base.

I mean, on the front door, we have this smartass window sticker we bought when in Glastonbury (UK) this past fall that’s a spin on the Neighborhood Watch signs that every good whitebread neighborhood posts.  Ours reads “Neighborhood Witch.”

Then, there’s the pot of pampas grass boiling in the big corn pot on the stove.  You can’t smell it, but there’s a definite scent of Fels Naptha Brown Soap wafting in the air.

And finally, there’s these glass jars of liquid on the dining room table, shown above.  To the uninitiated, they COULD resemble witches tinctures and such. If you look closer, though, and are familiar with the color chart below, you’ll figure out that they are artists paints.  Mine though are non-toxic, environmentally pure as the driven snow, and all natural.  Really.

You see, I’m entering a juried art show this coming weekend where the emphasis is on “green” – the movement not the color.  So… I figured what better way to “represent” than to create works using all-green materials, right?  And as you can see from the chart, I do have an array of colors to work with, though, ironically, there’s a dearth of green in these…

Oh, and the pampas grass boiling on the stove?  It’s for the paper to paint on, silly!

Contemporary artist, seeker, writer. Curious to a fault. I let the fates take me where they will and never say no to an adventure. That has led me on some heart-stirring journeys and impetuous choices. I regret nothing.
