What the day might hold.....


I finished this piece late last night. My scanner cuts off about an inch on either side. I love the 10x10 size , however my scanner is 8x10...... oh well. I have been thinking alot about the fall and feeling uneasy knowing both my little birds will be in school. I guess I am so used to the Mommy role that I feel abit odd in my own skin. It all goes back to how we define ourselves. My little birds ....... as crazy as they make me , they are my greatest work.
The collage reads " and as they go.... I hold dear the day they arrived. I wait for the return of my birds , as they carry my heart into the wind. "
Talk to you soon,
Courtney

your imagery is gorgeous ... and with your words it is even more powerful ....
when my last child went to kindergarten , i made a decision to pursue art as a full time career .... it was very hard on me for her to be gone, but it was made much easier by having my art to throw myself into ....

Stunning new piece, Courtney!!! Love the colors and of course, the meaningful words. Being a mommy is so very bitter sweet, isn't it?

If a print is available, I'll be scooping it up immediately. =-)

Hope you enjoy these last days of summer. xoxoxo
