    The Other Side of the Fence

    There is so much that goes on out in nature. Even with a barbed wire fence, there can be beauty all around. I hope you like this one-I needed to work more on the flowers, but the more I touched them up, the more I began to make a mess. All Artrage3Pro- stickers, stamps, watercolor, air brush, and knife. Whew! I am so thankful to all of you artists here that contributed the stamps, stickers, and fantastic art brushes, you made painting so much fun.
    Turning in now-it's been a long day. Good night Ragers at least from this end of the globe.

    What a great imaginative work of art! The contrast of the barb wire and the flowers and foilage works so well.................TJ

    Dear Sandra, a brilliant painting indeed!
    The fence is on focus, but You can still perceive some of the marvels existing beyond it, although a little out of focus.
    It seems to me that there's some symbolism here.
    We tend to be constrained by the barbed wire of our tasks, duties, worries etc. everyday and we tend to focus too much on them and to believe we cannot put them aside for a while and go beyond them, (sometimes at least) to recover our strength from our magic, fantastic world of lights, energies, hopes, wishes, creativity, wonder, grateful praise, vitality .....
    We should though, to our and anyone else benefit.
    Great, wise suggestion! Thanks!

    Alexandra,
    Barbed wire would never be an obstacle when accessing this dream spun
    garden. This intimidating fence only has a symbolic bark worse than it's
    bite and makes the venture into the inviting flower bed all the more
    enticing and worthwhile. Love the contrasting emotional aspect, much
    like exploring adventurous ways to overcome life's challenges. Beautifully
    painted!

    Hi Tony, Thank you so very much. I am so happy that you like it!

    Cesare, Thank you. Beautifully commented and so true dear man. We must look past the barbed wire fences, and it seems by your comment that you know just how to do that-and what a blessing it is!

    Dear MaryAnn, Thank you for your lovely comment. Exploring adventurous ways indeed, I believe that I have climbed over many a barbed wire fence especially since I have been a mother, and not only do I not fret over a scar here and there, but think that they add beauty and character!

    .... to some extent, dear Sandra, provided they are not going to electrify my barbed wires... Painting is one way anyhow, isn't it?

    Hi Pat, Thanks so much!

    You are right dear Katie, the beauty of nature will soon outgrow the fence! Thanks so much.
