“Art does not lie down on the bed that was made for it; it runs away as soon as one says its name; it loves to be incognito. Its best moments are when it forgets what it is called."

~ Jean Dubuffet



  1. I love all of your fabulous faces! Bird on a wire reminds me of the Anne Lamott book Bird by Bird - ever read it?
    Your work on muslin is amazing...

  2. I want to come to your house and play..You have so much fun..
    Have a wonderful Holiday and may you continue to be blessed with inspiration.

  3. That is GRAND.
    I love that quote.
    Love it love it.

    Oh and the art pieces are pretty neat too.

  4. I haven't been by because I thought you'd migrated to tumblr and I'm a bit of a techno slug.

    Ditto on I love the faces and you seem to have so much fun. It always sounds so deliciously spontaneous and I love that it trails off in surprising directions.

    I love that your art is so eclectic, there is painting and stitching. And of course who doesn't love a line from Leonard Cohen.

    My new year's resolution is to try and have as much fun as you. Help! What are your secrets??!

  5. I love love love it all!

    Thanks for your inspiring posts Lynne.

    I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a very happy happy new year!

  6. Beautiful work...Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year for 2011! I am sending you a snowflake kiss to add to your cheeks. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  7. buon natale dear one. I adore your sparrow, is she for sale? hope your day is blissful. xoxo

  8. Hi Lynne! Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Super Solstice! Looking forward to the return of the sun........although I'm also enjoying these long mornings, waking up so slow with the lightening of the day.

  9. Wanted to pop in and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Best wishes in 2011.

  10. I love all the pieces you have been making. The black haired girl is wonderfully eye catching.
    Merry Christmas dear Lynne, so happy you have days full of things you enjoy.

  11. The painting of the woman in the stripey trousers is, I think, by Suzanne Valadon; her life story is fascinating.
    I came here from Spiritcloth, and am very glad. Thank you.

  12. Happy New your painting of the black haired girl...Christmas blessings...too.

  13. Love! I also love Susanne Valedon's drawings. I can't find any on the internet for some reason but remember how taken I was with them way back at school. (A school library book). Now that was a long time ago!

  14. dear lynne! i love seeing all these different parts of you and your world, the quotes, your faces, your stitching and especially your heart.
