Today as we play 'Two For Tuesday', I'm thrilled to be sharing art from a talented artisan from my own pocket of the world. Julia Carter * paints glorious canvases in her studio hidden away amidst tranquil acreage not far from where I live.
As is often the case with the artists that I feature here, choosing just two pieces was truly challenging.
Julia has a broad range of work inspired by the natural world and today I've selected 'Journeys' and 'Set Free'. These two pieces are quite different I'm sure you'll agree, but I hope that in choosing them I've given you a feel for the diversity of her work and scope for sharing your thoughts and feelings.
I know that there are many of you who pop in each Tuesday to play along but each week a new face appears, so for those of you who may be new to this game it's as simple as looking at the two pieces and leaving a comment telling us how they relate to each other or to your life at the moment. To take the challenge to a higher level of difficulty you can restrict your response to 20 words or less.
Happy day Lovely!
* To truly appreciate the magnificence of Julia's work I highly recommend that you visit her website - some of the pieces are huge and give a totally different perspective than when you view them on your screen in this format.
