Her Magical Touch – Day 25


“It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene and as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.” -Anais Nin

What would a massage look like if we could see the colors inside?

“I want to be magic. I want to touch the heart of the world and make it smile. I want to be a friend of elves and live in a tree. Or under a hill. I want to marry a moonbeam and hear the stars sing. I don’t want to pretend at magic anymore. I want to be magic.” -Charles de Lint

About Judy Shreve

Blogging for me is like keeping a journal which I have done in various forms since I can remember. But what's great about this format is it offers an opportunity to explore all the things that interest me as an artist with others. Blogging seems to strengthen that sense of being part of both something personal and something universal. It takes the journaling idea and expands it through visitor's comments creating a valuable dialog that connects us to each other no matter where we live. I enjoy responding to each comment and warmly welcome your visits. email: judyshreve at mac dot com

    Another favorite!

    Question for you, Judy. Do you cradle your panels, frame them or just send them out into the world as is. Inquiring minds (all my many inner voices) want to know.

      Some of my larger pieces are cradled. Bob frames the rest – some straightforward & some shadow boxed. They are all either cradled or framed. Some of the ones from this 30 day challenge will get painted over – just happy experiments!

        I’m all too familiar with paint overs…

        Most of my boards are cradled but I have a few smaller one that aren’t. I guess I should hunt up an inexpensive source for shadow boxes…and then remember to cut the paint boards accordingly.
