Beautiful Composition



Hectic days call for simple shapes and colors - images to rest the mind and eyes. Real life work has been super busy, so it's nice to take a breather and view these collages by Lena Wolff. The pops of color and images are just right...not too much, not too little...perfect for a creative refresher.

Liberty finds coming soon...hopefully this afternoon or evening! And a big wish to my MOM - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! My Mom is wonderful, and she truly embodies the phrase "young at heart" - which I think is her secret to looking so youthful! For all your support and love...here's to you today...

Happy Birthday to your mom!

Love the art work... it reminds me of my youth... what was the art tool was called... I can't remember... but you pinned down a plastic wheel and then put a disk with holes in it on the outside or inside and your pencil went in the little holes and you went around in circles... what is this? Do you know? This is going to drive me CRAZY!
ENJOY your day! Say hi to your mom!

happy birthday to you mother!

What a great find.
A bit like Australian Aboriginal Painting but with elegance. I love the white spaces. They make it perfect.. makes the composition you're talking about.

These are so unbelievably poetic!

What fun works of art! They are beautiful. Noticed that the last had an owl in it.....we have been watching the popularity of Owls for some time now!

It is so organic looking.

I have been obsessing over this for since you posted it. I want it as a tattoo!
