"FRAGMENTED"  Dictionary says:  existing or functioning as though broken into separate parts.

One of the pure joys of owning your own gallery is the engaging conversations you have with people from all over...who love art!   In May I had this wonderful discussion with fellow artist Kathy, about art and layers and life.  That evening I wrote my thoughts in my journal regarding how art and the process relate to life.
Words like:  "destroying the surface could bring some wonderful surprises from deep within"; "don't let fear stop you"; "how do I know what lies underneath that top layer will be good?' and so on.
Thought provoking tidbits of words from our conversation which then transformed into a painting which I titled "Fragmented Words" which will be included in the benefit show for "Write-On" of Door County.  This exhibit opens at Edgewood Orchard Gallery with a reception on September 26, 1-5 pm and will feature works by the Gallery artists 'with a story to tell'.
