30×22 mixed media
When I was a child, The Wizard of Oz was shown on television once a year. I watched it every chance I got – even though our TV set was only black and white. I always wondered what color that “horse of a different color” was supposed to be! Oz was my imaginary place of escape, and I loved that movie. A few years ago, I decided to try something completely different from anything I had done before. The result was this mixed media abstract image of a rainbow with a yellow brick road rising through storm clouds to a dreamland of flowers, blue skies and an emerald castle. The red ruby slipper in the window represents the magical treasure of the heart’s desire.
