Yes very beautiful

I liked the idea of writing or pencil marks behind it

Glad things are going well,

Re: Is it tissue?
Jo it's what the French call Calque (not sure about the spelling), a sort of transparent parchement paper.

I like this. It's calm and delicate and vibrant with life at the same time, like a small brook in sandy soil of the pine forest. This would be great for reception or someplace like this, where people have to spend time (and want to watch something interesting) but don't want to get overwhelmed by aggressive colors. Too cool for living room thou.

Taps, Callista - and everyone who took the time to leave a comment
Thank you for your constructive comments. the lack of color was a major leap for me and it has freaked the hell out of those who have seen my latest efforts. I feel much better now knowing that it is possible for (some) people to enjoy a piece that employs texture and light alone. I will get back to my shredding table tonight thanks to the encouragement of you all. and

I did not see Ain, i saw this with my english eye,
it was the letter e and i liked it.  Art will say different things to different people.  Some artist fill books with practice pieces of art and sometimes i like them better than the finished piece.  I say do what feels right to you, don't think about what others think.

The artistic mind can do many things, can create many different forms of
art.  If you are inspired, go with it.  If you have a passion, go with it.  Feel what you are doing and do it for you, others will see that.  All great artist walked a narrow path.

Layers of parchment.  What an interesting concept.  My eyes keep being drawn to the area beneath the letter itself.  It looks almost as if it is dripping.  I went back and read the two preceding blog posts because I've not been around much lately for reading.  I can understand your aunt's disappointment because your colors were wonderful in your earlier work.  But this has a life of its own.  I am looking forward to further works of layered parchment.

You have touched a raw nerve here . All I can say is that i had lost my voice for a long time and i am trying to find it again. will post an entry about what you said (both on a personal and on an artistic level.) thank you for taking the time to read me.

Reading your About Me page, I found that your saying that it is too late to

do cinema work, is just silly. It is never too late to begin absolutely anything, except maybe gymnastics at 60.

You could write for the cinema, or write for your son, who is so important to you. Write books for him to read, about your beliefs, what you would teach him for his adult years. HIs legacy, more than just special calligraphic words pictures, but fonts that become something else?? Hands only writing, landscapes forming words for him, clouds speaking to him, water, leaves in the wind?? I don't know.

Children are the best inspiration for all of the arts, I think. But, I'm a mother, so, I am prejudiced.

I liked your earliest entry, but I worship color. Words are diamonds to me. You are rich to work with them.

Without knowing the focal point of the piece was the Arabic letter AIN, I simply looked at the piece as a whole – how it made me feel at first glance.  I like a mixture of art but often find the most simplistic pieces striking and this is precisely that.  As Naut said, it invokes a feeling of cold.  In fact, I saw ice and water although this does not align with the meaning of AIN.  I think it’s clean, eye catching, and solemn (that’s not a bad thing).  Stick with what your gut is telling you in terms of what direction your art should take.  When we listen to ourselves, we usually produce creative results.  This piece gets my vote!

Naut... you make a great art critic

and YES your comment was of great help. In fact, it is these kind of perceptions that i'm after.

There is one interesting point you make "I don't know where my eyes want to end up..." and it is intersting becuase the letter that is focal point of this piece is the letter AIN. Ain is also Arabic for a spring of water but more importantly it means an EYE. Is it a coincidense? maybe! but you certainly got me thinking and looking deeply into my work for hidde meanings.

Thanks!

art (like all other creative forms) needs an audience and -at least- some degree of appreication. It is not easy to create something that runs against the taste and sensibilities of those around you although this has been the case for many artists through history.

Thanks. I feel it is no longer experimenting, i'm comitted to this technique becuse -as i've said in an earlier post- i've found my voice, i couldn't return to my old ways, it wouldn't be natural.

I am not an art critic (I'm a critic of almost everything else, lol), but I like it! I find it interesting! I can see why it isn't getting a 'warm' welcome, because it isn't warm. There is a 'coolness' about it. But there is tension! My eyes wander into the quiet area, in the upper right field, but always get drawn back into the lower left were things are kind of torn...but then I want to look at the 'quiet' area again...In a way, I don't know where my eyes want to end up...

I'm not sure this helps...
