Slices and Stripes original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

Slices and Stripes by Polly Jones
Stripes get to me. It's so fun to play with thick paint and collage pieces of paper (from a map and the Bible no less) to make a striped pattern. This little blue flow plate with a dragon image is one of my favorites to paint. In fact, it's broken, but I have duct taped it together so I can continue using it for this purpose.  

I tend to have a subconscious that's embarrassingly easy to decipher.  I must have chosen three slices of limes to symbolize our family of three reunited...our daughter is back home after study abroad for a semester!!!

4" by 5" acrylic and mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas. Sold.

Cloudy Day Lemon original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

Cloudy Day Lemon by Polly Jones
I've been away from blogging for a while.  A lot has happened.  My brave mother who had struggled with health problems for many years died.  It's been a hard time made better by the faith that she is in a better place. Mixed in with the grief is a joy over all the blessings that have come in the shape of family and friends surrounding us.
