Sunrise over Pearblossom, CA.


Sunrise over Pearblossom, CA


on the way north to the snowy mountains from the small town in southern California where i lived as a child was a place called Pearblossom. we usually arrived just about sunrise at a truck stop or ihop having left in the dark o early morning to
get a good start.
i love the name and when i read of a pear as a color trade with Artsinthecards, this is where my mind went. i painted bits of fabric the colors of fall pears. then i set up to paint some rosey sunrises also on cotton. next i cut hill shapes and layered them front of sun. simple stitch held them in place and some metallic thread made
the rays
reach out from the sun.

the circles under the cards are the used coffee filters colorful with paint from projects wiped and driped and used up on them. i use these papers to wrap up
my art cards like
a little burrito for traveling through the mail.
colorful papers to go.
Although i  admit to seeing far, far more sunsets,
i wish a happy sunrise to all!
