hubby is away on a business trip so i practically lived in the art room over the weekend! my inspiration has been an invitation to display my art at a new art gallery that recently opened in tipp city -- studio 14. i'm very excited! i'm still putting some finishing touches on the above untitled piece -- more layers, details and textures to add . i'm loving the colors, particularly this rich van gogh deep gold 803 acrylic i bought at hobby lobby. it shimmers and is my new fave color!
another work in process without a name. i used the van gogh deep gold as part of the background again. i thought it was particularly rich with the red accents. if you click to enlarge you can see the tissue paper base for the flowers all dried and ready for me to add the paper "colors". it gives my collages a wondereful textured 3-d look and feel. this one will get more details and textures before it's done. any ideas for titles for these 2 vase pieces?
and, here's a sneak peek at the newest member of the simple living girls series. it seems someone is always asking if i have any new cat collages so i added a few to this one. what's a simple life in the country without cats??
here's a preview of things to look forward to on my blog over the next week or so:
• a sale in my etsy shop
• a giveaway!!
• photos of the photo collage canvasses i made -- now hanging in my bedroom AND a quick how-to so you can create some of your own
• grandma julie's zuchinni bread recipe -- i decided to play around with a recipe i found on the internet; i added a couple of new ingredients and the test loaves are in the oven right now. hope they taste as great as they smell!
• a little no-cost way i'm displaying my etsy print purchases in my art room!!!
did i mention i'm brimming with creativity?!!
