Latest work: "When Worlds Collide"

I usually have some sort of story that accompanies my work, but in this case, I don't know what to say. I began the picture by creating a variety of circles and then added texture, color, tiny circles and triangles, scrawling lines, thin-lined rectangles, a weathered page from an old scrapbook, a clock spring, scratched metal, and more until I felt it was finished. The appeal, to me, is the rich color, the slightly hidden geometric elements, and the swooping lines here and there. ©Carol Leigh

Carol, I love this piece...it's stimulating on all levels...such rich storytelling going. I could see this a cover for a book or CD...hmmmm, there's an idea.

My new favorite piece! I love the depth, textures & colors. It's a piece that invites me in & gives me plenty to look at once I'm in.

A "woof" for sure!
