At the end of the rainbow...

8 x 11.5 mixed media collage, layers of fluid acrylic paints
collage ephemera, colored markers, Caran d'Ache Neocolor II crayons
rubber stamps

Have you ever tried to get to the end of a rainbow? I have and guess what, I'm still on the road some 50 years later and haven't gotten any closer or maybe I have and I just didn't know it. What did I think I would find? a pot of gold, a farmhouse, field of poppies, the afterlife.

::::::: I interrupt this regular scheduled programming to say that my 'dear husband' who has been working tirelessly to restore my 1963 Mercury Meteor in the garage, just walked in the house and presented me with a special gift... a handful of assorted transmission springs for use in my art projects, he sure knows the way to my heart :::::: now back to our regular scheduled programming.

Whenever I see a rainbow I ask my husband do you think we could get to the end and he reminds me by his scientific mind that it is not possible that a rainbow is a phenomenon, a refractory of light, that it would be impossible. Geesh, I don't believe a word he says, why should I let him burst my rainbow bubble?

Now look here at this person below. Don't they seem close?

Well in the meantime, I'll keep dreaming because Dorothy says, "the dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true."

Thanks for stopping by! My other blogspot, "ThE ArTfuL EyE"

Your collage is beautiful as ever. I guess I am with you and will keep believing that there is an end to the rainbow. I just will not try to go there and be disillusioned.

This is another great page! I can't believe you're cranking out projects that are so fantastic for not only one but TWO blogs! You're super woman!

The page shows style blended with heartfelt nostalgia - a strong sense of history tinged with joy and showing open arms to destiny.

You will have to let us know when you use those car parts - parts that have travelled a lot of America, I am sure. Maybe even to the Grand Canyon.

I wonder how many rainbows the occupants of that car witnessed while driving over the speed limit of life.....
