Today I’m featuring the Mysterious Poetry series. It comes in magnets, bookmarks, greeting cards, and earrings. Each piece very close to my heart, a tiny original artwork to provoke your thoughts.
Fits your quirky sense of humor. Whole days could go by while I snip lines from books and shuffle them around until they make me laugh. Often they strike a poignant chord as well. Some of the poems make perfect sense and others remain mysterious.
The poems are glued to paper on which I have added some layers of rough texture with a stucco-like feel. I sometimes curve the lines using old-time skills I gained as a paste-up artist in the 1980s. The background is painted with acrylic including sponged accents. Some feature the addition of asterisks, hearts or flowers that I’ve painted and cut out with a knife.
The cards [not shown] are geared towards occasions and come in 3.5×5 and 5×7 inches.
The earrings are hand-made papier mache beads, some have complete novellas that you can read (possibly with a magnifying glass). And I still have two or three pairs of the classic story that just says “No if and or but” over and over. Cracks me up every time.
