Have you seen the lovely mixed media work of cathy maclaurin? Oh my, am ever loving these layered, patterned pieces. The colors are amazing. Who knew that white and black could look so magical, painted so delicately on a common, wrinkled paper bag? And I'm intrigued and admittedly a bit uncomfortable with the beautifully rendered animal children throughout this series of work. Which is always a good thing. Beauty, tension, mystery and decoration, all qualities I love in a good piece of art.
