Falling Rain

My son gave me an iPhone a few years ago and introduced me to the App, Doodley Buddy.  It sounded like something a little strange but I was up for the challenge of painting with my finger on an iPhone.  I cannot tell you how much fun it is to work with raw lively color and painting with a blaze of finger movements.  As I painted I began to see how these colorful works had the distinct feeling of weavings.  After several completed finger paintings I gathered them together for a book called, "Woven In Time".  The introduction was written with hands on my computer keys,  and with an open mind the words started to flow.  The exert below is a hint of how fabric has played a role in my continuing art quest.

  1. I'm amazed that such beautiful art can be created on a phone! Fun to hear about your childhood, too.

  2. I really like the bold pattern and COLRS that Pop!
