Streams of Conscientiousness

One deadline here and gone, yet still in the midst of another project that is slowly beginning to take shape.  These days are steeped in silence and deep thoughts, intertwined with creative wanderings, art-making, and finally the rewards of seeing ideas come to fruition as multiple works.

More small glimpses of what is currently on my work table, which will be revealed in its entirety at a later date.  I love these little snapshots, pieces of a whole that tempt us into a beautiful and dreamy world.

The heat has finally retreated but only for a few days.  Rain continues to elude these Plains, so very parched, crying out for relief.  The drought is severe, very severe dear friends, ravaging and cruel to these lands.  We continue to pray.

These are absolutely gorgeous. I just love your antique backgrounds, and the way the birds and flowers are so cleverly superimposed. Wonderful. xx

Your pieces are so beautiful with all the layers and natural imagery!
I'm so sorry for the farmers. We had a drought here for about a month. Lots of crops were ruined. We haven't mown the lawn all summer. Now it's beem muggy and wetv for nearly two weeks ad supposed to continue. It won't help some crops but at least the reservoirs are filled.

Beautiful! I hope quenching rains come soon to your area. We've had drought here, but nothing like what you're experiencing now.

Hi Traci,

I feel so bad for our farmers in the midwest!! I am praying that the rains come soon...but I know it is not soon enough!!
Traci I love your latest dabblings..are you creating more fabric?? Your fabric to me is like gold..I use it very sparingly!!!

Love and Blessings,

Gorgeous! I love seeing your sneak peeks. I live in an agricultural community, too. On the news last night they were interviewing farmers about your drought. The compassion the farmers had for their fellow farmers was so touching. Even though the price of their corn/wheat/cannola is sky rocketing, there was no joy in their voices. They know that our wet early summer and irrigation put in 70 years ago is the only reason they are not facing the same dilema. My heart goes out to your community and others. We are all hoping for some relief for you. xoxo

I find your work stunning in every sense. Your color palette, designs and layering all just touch me. I'm a huge fan of your artwork!
