New things.....

I have so much to tell you.
1. I am working on some little collage birds for Christmas
ornament. Below are just a few.... they still need their feet
and hangers , so use your imagination.

2.I made them all from recycled materials! I am also teaching a studio class on
how to make these , in December .

3. I really wanted to get back to my roots ( see the connection !! Ha Ha ! ),
and do more dimensional work. I love these roots !

4. This is a work in progress. I have another big tree piece as well.
Pics on this later.
5.I have an upcoming art event on November 6th. My little city is having their 1st gallery walk , and I am going to have some original pieces and some photography to share.
6. I am also doing a workshop with the woman to woman center. It is a great
mentoring program for young women wanting to make a
positive difference in their life.
Busy , Busy, Busy !!!!

Sunday around town....

Daddy headed off to the Redskins game.... so the boys and I had fun around town. We all set out with our camara for some interesting pics around town.

We finished our day with some Rita's Italian ice and a trip to the used bookstore
..... a perfect time!

It has been tooooo long since my last post. About mid-week I was so exhausted after homework,dinner, practice, laundry..... I went to bed early. This is very unusual
for me. I treasure my night time get away to the computer or my creative zone!
I do have some things to show despite my lack of production.

You can not see the words at the top very well,
"It is woven of side by side...home."

This one is still a work in progress. I layered square pictures of sky photographs
I took, covered them with thin white tissue, and then put a coat of blue and
white on top.

I have some thoughts swirling around in my head. I am going to break out of both my color palette and my subject matter. I have noticed that my work is very controlled sometimes. Of course being the nature of collage, it is a bit chaotic, however I do not fully let go. Notice the organization of miss matched papers.... the balance of it all.
I am not changing my style , I just need to do something out of my comfort zone to
re-group and get fresh ideas.
I will keep you updated on how all this turns out!

OMG..... could it be.....

A new piece!!!

it is going in my etsy shop!!! This is a miracle!
I think I might need to dust off the shelves a bit!
I have used this imagery in another piece several years ago.
I think I might make it a series.
