Meaning behind the art: When starting the Tack Down piece today I had no idea what I was going to make. Instead of pulling out the watercolor paper and taping it off I decided to do something different and collage right on the wood panel. Not that Iíve not done this before but when you use to doing the same old thing some timeís it can become mundane and boring. I pulled some coated collage papers and went at it. Another change was to only push back the paper with some white paint on the bottom and let the other papers stand as there are. Still doing the shadowing but creating difference from the top to the bottom and I wanted to add some dimension differently so I pulled out my carpet tacks, Oh I do love their imperfect shapes and it felt good to hammer and pound something. Book thread was tied to the tack heads and there you have it. This piece will become part of my Healing Circle series. Any time I use a ringlet in my pieces I connect to a healing part with in myself or outwardly in the daily life.
