Autumn Joy

Dogwood Abstract 001

Finally, I finished this piece.  It has been languishing on the easel for a few months.  Mixed media, acrylic and oil pastel.  The crayons made the paint pop.  It is very stylistic, and very different from another recent piece… The inspiration was a photo of some nearby dogwood trees that go through wonderful color transitions throughout the year.

  1. I want to say thank you again- have really enjoyed your recent posts- I feel lightened as I read them and want to commit even more to the here and now. Also, I really like your paintings…

    • Thanks, Charles. I find every art piece that I work on a bit of a puzzle. I’ve been away from art for a long time so working on improving skills, investigating materials and getting inspired by everyday things… Eliza

  2. Do you sell your art? I’d love to have one of your pieces. You are, after all is said and done, my wilderness mentor.

    • Ironic, isn’t it, Dick? After following me around in the mountains, now you’re following me online, too. Yes, you can buy one of the paintings. I’m not attached to them particularly. My living room is hung with all many pieces of my work, but I change out pieces now and again. Let me know what you like best. I’m thinking of devoting a page on the blog just to artwork. bluedragonjournal@gmail.com.

      Best wishes to Darlene. She appears to have recovered well from her accident of last year. Love, Eliza

  3. Your artwork is truly beautiful. And your story a profound one. Have you ever thought of doing an illustrated book for children? Crystal kids would love it, I’m sure. Like you, retirement is upon me and though I keep busy through some contract work, I have absolutely no idea what lies ahead. The only thing I’m sure of is change. Love, B.
