omg…Finally made it back here.
not sure where to begin…
I’ve been in the throes of working on a commissioned painting, and I am very happy to say I finally finished it last week! Alas, I cannot share it now, because it is to be a surprise gift and my client plans to have an unveiling party. I’ll post the painting after and if given permission, I’ll share some images from the party.
When away from the easel my mind has been consumed with things beyond painting. Not excluding this blog. Fashion design, cooking (healthy & tasty vegetarian dishes), re-defining my home on Fleming Island, edible landscape, to name a few!
To be honest..it has been driving me a wee bit crazy, yet I am so excited.
Since finishing the commissioned painting (title yet to be determined) I took the first step on one project. I visited a wonderful lady named Susan..a costume designer..pattern making guru! I shared my first dress design (Twyla by Morri) to her..scratched out on a yellow legal pad. tee hee We discussed and she measured–it’s now in process. I plan to post more on that subject soon!
Enough of my future ventures/projects..
I should tell you a bit about “Pieces of Music II” I painted this piece (along with the one below) in a class some years back. It’s all my work though..I never wanted dear teachers to paint on my work..and if they did I wiped it off. :) As I most always do..I’ve been back into it several times. I think it’s done now..I just need to sign it again. I signed it before..not sure which way I signed it. (see previous post The Messenger about how I’ve signed work so many ways..until finally settling with my nickname Morri).
Here is a smaller image of the other painting…Pieces of Music I

On the subject of music..I have to say..I don’t think I could paint without it! In the past, I would play one CD over and over until the painting was finished. Now I listen to Pandora. I love all genres of music..but I confess, I love unique quirky music..
like what I’m listening now:
So these pieces are in honor of music..and how I so agree with Frederick Delius. Even though he was born 150 years ago..
his words, like music,
“music is an outburst of the soul”
…as is painting!
ta ta for now darlings (I hope to post weekly..maybe twice)
