(And I'm making messes as usual.)
Thank you so much to everyone who came to my artist's talk on Thursday at the Beechwood-Blue Gallery's Pairings Art Show - I really enjoyed meeting everyone and getting to talk about my process. Beechwood Arts is such a wonderful organization and I am so honored to be able to work with them!

It was based on a daydream I had - a thought - we always looks to trees as this metaphor for staying grounded in your roots and so on.
What if, really, trees were just tired of always being so firmly planted in the earth, and just wanted to fly?
|When Trees Fly...|
It's a song I am very proud of, and it's very dear to my heart.
|I just love the endless supply of inspiration that we can constantly source from nature.|
|One of my newer pieces|
|Definitely a great experience!|
Slowly but surely my site www.amyoes.com is starting to have more of my new artwork up in the Mixed Media Gallery so definitely check it out - some of them are even starting to get titles - go figure!

I'm trying to "budget" what I share every day because I've been creating so much lately! But here's something fun I've been working on - I actually took apart a chocolate box and made little scenes in each slot - oh the things you can do with containers...
So give this a try and let me know how it comes out - literally anything goes - well, what will fit in the slot obviously :)
Well, in the spirit of the weekend, I'm cutting this blog post short - but I'll be posting a lot more art I've been doing over the next few weeks - okay well here's a sneak preview...
|I'm sure you know what I'm planning on putting here...|
"Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come."
Oh, and on your way out...some more beautiful tree eye-candy - YUM!
