Dedicated to my father who passed away on 01/14/1979
I weathered the storm daddy just like you taught me too..
Inspirations.. a strip of dress lace laying on my desk when the lights went out and the song,, Leather and Lace by Stevie Nicks
I started this pen/ink doodle/sketch on the Night the lights went out 01/13/2012, the night of the ice storm here in upstate NY… last night the wind got up to 65mph..and we have more damage in our yard and lost power again.
So this doodle has been played around with over this winter weekend and days following out of a need to create and take my mind off the storms..
I finished this early this morning at 3am. 01/18/2012
and yes I have not been to bed yet…. the mind of creativity… haunts me!! teehee!
this is nothing compared to the wonderful pen/ink drawings here on RB.. by any means, but what it shows you is how my mind works.. so do not crawl into my head to much,, I am just a simple country gal you just might get freaked!

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.

    Lots of work here linmarie and very beautiful it is too. I see many interpretations of it. I see th sea in waves and the shells happily bobbing, and I see the lace idea, but I also see the undulating ‘winds’ lulling and then rising !! Now who’s playing with the pysche!! LOL

    Smiling faces, happy eyes, hounds on the chase, mountains and valleys, wildflowers along the river, toothy grins and wide smiling mouths, teardrops and mourning doves, circus tents and trapeze ropes, sprites and gnomes and wee tree folk…and so much more.
