Dispersing ~ New Mixed Media Painting

Wow! It's crazy how much the weather can change in a week. Last week we were painting our house when it was in the 60's to higher 70's and today it is in the 30's with snow! Unlike me, Kaelyn was excited to see the snow and was jumping up and down and said "Lets go sliding!" I'm pretty sure she meant sledding. :) She was not a happy camper when I said she had to wait until there was a little more on the ground. She'll get what she's hoping for soon enough.

Above is my newest mixed media (thought provoking) piece, "Dispersing". It represents our life... the whole growth process. We, like the flower, are always changing. The more we learn about our self and apply the skills or rather talents we know we start blooming. Our goal is to bloom into a beautiful flower. The circles represent the petals than will eventually fall. Its like the memory of us that will be left behind. Hopefully we will have touched others in some wonderful way through our journey here on earth. The flower can be quite a powerful symbol... something beautiful but it won't stay around for long. It grows up so quickly and then disperses its self... so much like you and me.

Hi Jodi! I heard about the snow! I am in NY and we are in the 70's still! But it will come to an end by friday.

I love this piece! It looks so peaceful and calming in the colors you chose and I love the meaning behind it.

Nice work!

Love your new piece, very soothing.

SNOW? ick! We have had beautiful weather the past two days, but it's going to come to an end very soon. =)

It felt cold enough to snow here today... but all we had was crazy wind! I am sure snow won't be too far off.

I love this piece... and the meaning behind it. The pink background is beautiful! Is it digital or painted? Gorgeous! :)

Thank you for all the kind comments!
Jennifer~ the background is a patterned paper with acrylic and oil pastel over it.
