Busy, busy,

I can not believe I have not posted in such a long time. I had all these good intentions of doing this at least twice a month. I have been busy getting work ready for some shows that I am in. This picture is of a piece I did back in college and just went off with my son across country. He is started a new job in California. I call her - The Lady -  She is done with crayon, colored into little squares. I was very proud of her. They say you should look at your work across time. I guess I was always interested in the dignity of faces and stories that they tell or perhaps the stories that the viewers give them.

Don't you love it when things work out? I had this transfer and I just wasn't sure what I wanted to do. I started to clean up my work area and saw all these scraps left over from a watercolor pour that I had done and just loved how they looked, so collaged them onto the transfer. I really like the look. I called it - child of god - . Sometimes it pays to have chaos in the stuudio

Experimenting again

I was going to do thos once a week but life got in the way. This piece is another photo transfer over an unsuccessful monotype. Then I decided to put some beeswax over that and then I collaged some painted art paper. This was the technique from my Yahoo Art Techniques group that I am a member of. I attached the paper with beeswax. I'm not sure if I like the affect. The title is  "silence".
