My mother was one of the most creative persons I have ever known. She taught me to create with whatever was available at that time and... she taught me how to make the most beautiful and realistic paper flowers. This painting is dedicated to her for I used parts of demo paintings, one of which had flowers. These scraps were part of an outdoor experimental workshop and, one of a demo using ink and watercolor crayons. The rest is from the "incubation" pile.
It was a cold day in Paris... I found someone else he said, as he packed a bag and left me, leaving behind his favorite navy blazer and red silk tie. In anger and tears, I ripped the blazer to shreds, cut up the tie, and tore into the jewelry he had gifted me....Today I design artisan jewelry and accessories from those shreds of fabric, buttons off the blazer, and bits of broken jewelry. Every piece has a story...SWEET REVENGE !!!
