The following poem goes with this Small Treasure (2.5 × 3.5) ACEO original artwork on heavyweight watercolor paper:

My Purple Dress:

When I wear Purple
I feel like a Queen
I feel strong and empowered
Able to Do Anything
I’m ready to Sashay and Strut
And Take on the World
Or maybe sit down and Chill
Or Hang out with My Girls
I can Chair a Board Meeting
Or close a million dollar deal
I can handle my business
yet Still keep it real
Whatever role I may Play or
Title I may wear,
When I’m in my Purple dress
No One Else can compare.
It’s not Arrogance or Conceit
That Makes Me Feel this Way
It’s the Power of the Purple,
What more can I say!

This is a mixed media piece: Acrylic, Watercolor, & Ink On Watercolor Paper


woman, purple, dress, new dress, vibrant, abstract, african american art, landscape, sunny day, flower, flowers, summer, color, colorful, art therapy, grief therapy, survivor, creative, creativity, angels, inspiration, women, divine wisdom, messages, faith, angel, journal art, trust, understanding

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    Angela, If I could, I would love to do a solo feature of your work. Each week you send in such wonderful images, I love them. I know I feature you often, but your work is diverse and exciting:)

  • Anytime… anything for you Roza! I am so honored you like my work! YOU made my day today! You have no idea how much… was a little down in spirits today and then I got home and read this request and immediately smiled. Thank you so very very much for selecting me… I try not to add too many pieces at a time (I paint EVERY day to survive the loss of my only child so I have a boat load of paintings)… I am thrilled to know you like what I do submit! :-)
