Dream of Roses for IF 'Garden'


My entry for IF is again a compilation of artistic events...isn't it at times profound how what begins as one thing can become something else; altogether different? I sometimes wonder, during the creative process, if art doesn't simply become what it was always meant to be.
This canvas has been part of my work for Paulette Insall's 'Organic Backgrounds' class. Instinctively, or not, I'm not too sure, I just found the colour impact of the brown lettering and the green of the dark stamped Ivy leaves made me think of the richly coloured earth in the spring and of course the roses before they bloom here in the early summer garden......the irony of the lettering (which is not clearly legible) "Art is letting your fingers capture what your heart is hearing"~stamp available here

I wish I was taking Paulette's class!!! This background is dynamic and that you were able to interpret it and take it to another level is what art is...and I loved your comments -- this is so true. We can see and then see beyond and while we thought we were going in this direction, we end up going in that direction. Beautiful ... and I love the words on that stamp!
