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.

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.

Altered Cabnet card

This is a Cabnet card I altered, Not my best, guess it is because I used colors I would normally not use? Oh well, theres always tomorrow. Try, try again.

Todays art Piece

I worked on a RED ON RED Deco today. This is for Jan in my Yahoo Deco group. I am please with the way this came out, but it didn't scan well. The background is torn paper and Velvet that I embossed with a rose stamp. You can't see the embossing in this photo but it turned out well I think.

Dream, To have Wings and Fly

This child just called to me to help her in some way. She looks kind of sad. So I thought she should have wings and then she could just fly and be happy. LOL I painted the background with acrylics, stamped added the saying, and some Patterned paper, along with more mesh. Also used a Technique that Belinda Spiwak told us about. Thanks Belinda.

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!!
