AND THE CLOUDS DANCED - 6" X6" landscape pastel by Susan Roden

AND THE CLOUDS DANCED
6" x 6" pastel

A day of passing . . . of a life so dear. 

A sad and broken heart . . .  
lightened from the lifetime of memories. 

Kiss the clouds . . .  and embrace the knowledge
that you are now at peace. 

Love you Mom

And what have I been up to?

Acrylic paint, toys and bugs!

Saturday the 13th, is the opening reception  of "ROBINSON + RODEN"
at Ray Street Custom Framing + Gallery in San Diego and concurrent 
with Ray-at-Night, North Park's monthly art walk. 

Above, COW/ LIZARD + BUGS, is a multimedia piece I created 
for this exhibition. Originally the little critter was made for my 
Tiny Toyland awhile back, so decided to take the little guy and create 
a little scene within a plexiglass box that hangs on the wall. Below
is a detail view of the little guy and the bugs.

Pretty cool huh?
