House of the Rising Sun



I thought it would be apropos to have you listen to the
song that inspired this creation. Ah...the summer of love.


"House of the Rising Sun" at
#2 Melodia Lane

mixed media on wood
18" x 6" x 1 "
asst. ephemera
rubber stamps
mica
acrylic paint
oil pastels
beeswax


...one can only surmise what
lies behind closed doors

our madam is smiling whilst
errant notes speak "look for the sun"

Here at #2 Melodia Lane beyond the
ornate gate the door appears buttoned
tightly, and a light is a glow in the
window, beckons the next caller.

Do you dare?

I'm being silly, these days I feel I don't
need to be precocious. I've enjoyed
my time away, making, doing and just being
after all isn't that what we are supposed to do.

Our world is in a different place these days and
we need to be more observant, more vigilant,
perhaps even play a different role. While our
world is evolving, so must we. What can we do
differently with our days to make them richer
and to calm our souls? How do we interact with
each other?

My hope is that you are all well and in good
space filled with good health and happiness.

I think of you often.

Thank you for your visits and kind words even
while I'm away.

Very NICE! I love all the interesting elements. It's soooo charming. Great song. They just don't make 'em like that anymore. God, he was young - the singer.

Yep, we really need to do what we can individually to bring more richness to our lives and calmness to our souls. Build up that energy and get a tidal wave of richness and calmness building to wash away all this other crap that builds fear in us instead of love. Wash it away. See now you've got me going!

Great post, beautiful piece. So glad I stopped by today. Been thinking about some changes to my days...back to yoga, more paint, less computer. Thank for the nudge.
