Oh, my dear sweet neglected blog, how could I have left you so. I promise to spend more time with you in 2013.

To wish you a happy Valentine’s Day here is something a little bit different, one of my own doily creations.

A Piece That was Torn from the Morning, (detail) 2012
11 x 7. 5 inch paper (7.5 x 6.5 printed area)
acrylic on paper

The title is taken from one of my favourite lines from one of my favourite songs, Take this Waltz by Leonard Cohen. Just as l like my doilies to be beautiful with a hint of wear, Cohen’s poetic love song is hauntingly beautiful with a side of darkness and just a touch of something lost.

That may not sound overly romantic for Valentine’s but it is perhaps more realistic.

 

May your day be filled appreciating the real love that’s in your life year round.
