Paris in the Fall


A New Collage using Acrylics, Torn map, napkins, stamps and Image. It was done on 5x7 Watercolor 14olb. CP paper. I'll back it with chipboard.

Boy life is busy



Things have been crazy with the long weekend and end of summer coming up so fast.
I finished a collage RR and I'm starting another. Still have one on the road, and can't wait to see the finished results. I will post the one that came home as soon as I get a picture of it.

I just finished two Scrapbook spreads for a Christmas gift for a Child at MACS. Please take a second to check out their web site. Homemade cards and gifts are always welcome and it helps these Children to know, someone else cares. Also, a prayer always helps.

Heat wave

I haven't done much in the studio for the past few days cause the heat in CA is at record breaking Temperatures. Not easy to concentrate when your having heat stroke. LOL
Anyway, Its going to be a cool 110 today so think I will try to get something going. A day without art is a day lost. My own little quote for the day. ;o)

Study in Color


This is a lesson for Collage Explorations Group.
The lesson is a series of collages in color. This one is Monochromatic. I Traced a rose out of a coloring book, then used one color of Acrylic paint (purple). I also used drywall tape for texture. I mixed some texture Magic into the color, Layed the drywall tape on to the painting, smeared with a pallet knife and removed the drywall tape before the paint dried.

Generations


I was doing cab cards for a swap, and went through my old family photos. Came across this one of Uncles I believe. So, thought it was a good one to alter. This is not the original, just a copy. ;o) I like how this one turned out.

Todays art Piece

Catching up on art


I have a list of swaps to catch up on for my Yahoo groups,
This is a Deco page I did for Stacie's deco in my Deco group. Its hard to get back into the swing of things after three weeks of no art work. But I am happy with the way this turned out.

A week of crazyness


DH was home last week and we worked in the yard. Did I mention it was 105-108 all week. I dread his retirement in two years, cause he is NOT a couch potato. LOL Anyway, we redid our pond, put a watering system in one side of the yard. And he also fixed the electrical in the house. Thank goodness he went back to work Monday, so its rest and back to Art for me. Yippeee!!
