Illustrated Manuscript: From Judith Heartsong to Theresa Williams. Approx 12 x 15
In this illustrated letter, Judith Heartsong writes of the creative spirit and memory:
As summer wings its way on green and leafy feet I find my thoughts turning toward home in contemplation and remembrances. Some joy some sadness. Of all the past and those yet to come the hours are all filled with light & beauty & nature. In great bounty I wish you all of these, my friend & sister creative spirit. Judith Heartsong 9/5/09

Judith Olivia HeartSong is a professional artist of more than twenty-eight years experience with a penchant for exuberant color. As a painter and muralist she creates splashy watercolors featuring abstracted women and acrylics of bold, iconic flora and fauna. There is a seamless flow from one beautiful thing to another in her work with a dreamlike quality that delights.
An exploration of mixed media began many years ago, and since then mixed media additions tend to find their way into the paintings the artist creates. Mixed media boxes incorporate words, images, and found objects housed in shadowbox forms and the artist teaches workshops and offers private lessons from her studio in a gorgeous, light-filled, 28,000 square foot art center (VisArts) just outside Washington, DC.
Judith has work in numerous public and private collections including the Permanent Collection of Orlando International Airport in Orlando, Florida. A painting was presented to First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton at the Inauguration in 1993, and she painted a large mural at the National Zoo in 2003. In 2008 Princess Cruise Line commissioned a series of four limited edition prints that are now offered for sale on their ships, and in 2009 Transformational Threads licensed her image Peacock Crimson for limited edition thread paintings.
