This work came from the following quotes posted on my studio wall for the day. I was feeling blocked up and I just started laying plaster…I used to be a home/landscape designer…So I can lay some mud let me tell you….I put the raised areas on top of a smei-smooth layer with a plaster bag and thinned plaster. I loved the process on this, it had no plan, and except for using the same size flat stick for the vertical lines…it just came…. I love it when that happens.

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there.
You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star.
I’m dancing….I’m freaking dancing!
