Layers. Colors. Text. Release.


Gesso, acrylic paints, paint-stamped feathers


Sharpie Fine Point for hand drawn vines

White Sharpie Paint Marker for Background
Text. Black Sharpie Fine Point pen for text vines.

Gray  Momento Dual Marker text edges.
 Molotow Paint Marker in Sahara Beige for over text.

 I held everything inside all week, 
and I think it all poured out in 
 layers this morning.

I may even add smaller written thoughts, in a deeper color,
over top...

It feels good to pour my thoughts out onto pages.
A clearing of the mind!

This is beautiful, Kathy. So delicate. Isn't it comforting to be able to pour it all out in a safe place rather than bottle it all up inside? Like you say in the title - release! So healing.
