This collection arose from making free gestural marks while taking a 12 week course that took me back to basic review of art principles and my WHY (why I create and choose the subject matter that I do). The natural wood panels and frames of some of these give a primitive feeling, a bohemian flair which is my favorite. One of the things the class had me focus on is what lights my creativity, and I always find it's the soul stirring expressions made by gestural marks or thoughts of the joyful human figure. I am thankful that my SOUL is always stirred by my Creator; I pass these along to whomever is touched by one. May they make you SMILE.
