The Luxury of Owning Beautiful Art

"Channeling," by painter Deidre Adams, 2008

This painting by artist Deidre Adams, graces the wall of my living room.  Originally undertaken as an abstract assignment in painting class, her work, "Channeling," goes beyond the requirements of a class assignment, and stands on its own as one of her masterpieces.

Drawing from her compositional experience as a multi-media textile artist, she draws out the emotions of experience all of autumn's colors under a cerulean blue sky -- in the veins of a single, fallen leaf.
