Messages in the Breeze, Summer Solstice

Begining of a new piece.
Hello patient blog readers, as usual my poor blog is a little quiet these days, although I am not.
This is the beginning of a new commissioned piece which I have just finished. Virtually all  my pieces start off this way, lots of layers of torn paper.



A while back I did a canvas called messages in the breeze, it was inspired by the old folklaw tales of dandelion seeds being carriers of messages for those loved ones we have lost. This is a new take on the idea, still including the dandelion seeds but using a moonlit sky. The photos show the canvas at various stages.



 And finally..... finished, Messages in the Breeze, Summer solstice.
