Going Home

So, first I laid out a couple of acrylic glazes... more just to experiment with the overlay of colors. then, not feeling inspired I applied the text from the old dictionary i found and set it aside. today i picked it up and suddenly decided i saw a forest and a girl returning home from the city to her magical forest lead by a golden bird. so, i drew on top of the paint with black ink and then brought the acrylics back to finish it. this might be inspired from living my adult life in los angeles and my childhood in new hampshire. in my mind there is always an inviting gentle forest waiting for me to return home.

This looks so mysterious, the path that's being waked here. Wow, I could get lost forever looking at this picture.

this is lovely. I'm not a mixed media fan but this one I like very much. I like your colour choices, too.
And it reminds me of a watercolour painting I did years ago of two girls strolling down a forest lane. Must dig it out some day.

This makes my heart ache. I too am that girl, living my grownup life in the city, missing my forest.
