THIS PASTEL PAINTING BEGAN AS A PORTRAIT of one of my daughters, but it wasn't working for me, so her head became one of several beach stones.

Portrait of Mrs. Schelling. Pat taught primary-aged children for 38 years. She is loved by students, parents and staff. If you know Pat, then you know what "fruits of the spirit" are supposed to look and sound like...This painting is intended for one of her grandchildren.

RED - the newest painting in which color is personified. The color red is associated with the root chakra, or the energy center located near the base of the spine. The root chakra represents our connection with the earth. The color red carries more emotional content than other colors. In western culture, the powerful passions of red can be overwhelming if unbalanced. In China, however, red symbolizes happiness and good fortune. In my series on color personified, I'm interested in the positive meaning of the colors and in the balancing links between colors. For example, the bluejay feathers in the hair of the model for "Red" link to the bird in "Blue". The other paintings in the series are at www.birdseyeartstudio.com

PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS - I've had this painting hanging in my home for several years. I finally got around to having this painting scanned professionally. I can't explain my delight in the forms of cacti - but they are among the highlights of visits to AZ and TX.

THE COLOR OF FECUNDITY -
"GREEN" is the color of fecundity, of harmony, of creativity. The color is associated with the heart chakra. This pastel painting is one of a series personifying color.
Apple leaves are surprisingly varied in shape and color, at least on my apple tree. The complexity of patterns was challenging, requiring study, patience, and time. Reproductions at Birdseye Art Studio - www.birdseyeartstudio.com

THERE IS AN ART TO LOOKING AT ART. Although I'm not a famous artist or art critic, I have a life-long passion for art. I wrote a short blog about how I try to look at paintings. If it's helpful to you, it's served its purpose. Read the new blog at http://www.birdseyeartstudio.com/new-blog/
