"Art touches the soul...art is communication...it reaches out from the canvas and passes through the eyes of the viewer right into his heart where it can leave an imprint of beauty that can make the spirit sing."

Women & Creativity Original Mini Paintings!


I participated in the Women & Creativity program (do you know about Women & Creativity?  It is a month-long (March) celebration of women which takes place primarily at the Hispanic Cultural Center but also all over Albuquerque, NM with workshops of all kinds, events, etc...like everyday!!...it is amazing!!)  ...in a small way this year...I have done this particular event for the last few years.  I made baseball card sized paintings to share with other artists of the world!!  I can say that ("the world") since there are artists from around not only the USA, but also globally who are participating in this one event...something that makes this whole thing just plain delightful!!!!

I sent my 10 painted cards to the folks in charge and they in turn will divvy up all of the cards from the other artists who are participating, encasing the paintings in a wonderful little book and returning the new selection of 10 cards to each artist who participated...it's so much fun!!

So I wanted to show you my paintings...all different, but related in technique and colors...so, here they are...

 
as you can see, every color in the rainbow!  ...topped off with touches of gold..it was great fun making these 10 mini paintings!  I can't wait to receive my assortment of little paintings from the other artists!!   and I look forward to participating again next year!!
