my secrets shared with Seth...Namaste

Open House at Seth's Altered Page for shared secrets

my secrets are hidden in plain view
calm quiet movements
calm quiet moments
guardians for all artists.
standing still is essential for my journey
listen with my heart
use the best materials I have available
share my moments with others...both young and the old
carry my camera daily
even to the grocery to photograph fresh flowers and vegetables I may not be able to buy today
thrift stores like Goodwills and St. Vincent de Paul...magic happens here
junk boxes and trash bins in framing shops and hardware stores
attempt to use little bits and pieces in my works
zero trash for mother Earth
revisit my travel journals...I have been blessed
a new box of crayons and colours
practice gratitude -seek balance in both body and soul's energies
say YES and believe it
see with a child's heart
Imagine and Live in Peace...Art saves has saved mine.

  1. I so love the rusted bits.....there is such texture and feeling and color in them....a mystery beneath the water.
    The photos are lovely!!!!!


  2. Thank you dear Anne, these are my bits and pieces I am exposing this year in hopes that I can create a metal assemblage dedicated to Women's Work. How are you feeling? Stay warm...we have sunshine and the temperatures are warming up a wee bit! WooHoo! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
