New Art

Here is how one of my "teaser" photo's turned out. Started out with plywood, covered in paper-next time i would paint it. I covered small pieces of wood with coordinating fabrics, then glued them on once i arranged how i liked. Today i added the metal pieces. (it was just too plain w/only the fabric) and the "radiance" bubble.
The canvas is a piece i am reworking. Made it a few yrs ago-it was yellow, said whimsy with some other stuff. Tore it all off, painted over it, added molding paste, paint, more paste and paint and that is where it sits now...

Finally, an update

Had an unexpected day off yesterday thanks to the ice! didn't get much done but still nice to be off since i now officially hate the job.
As for art, haven't done much lately, so nothing to post yet...but soon.

One World One Heart

What is OWOH?

It is a blog-wide giveaway event. The original idea behind this was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. Last years event had so many participants and many connections were made because of it......friendships that are still going strong.
These 2 items are my give-a-way's this yr-the green one's base is a wood block. the other started out as a wooden box.
I'm also adding a fabric collage-if someone from out of country wins, they will receive a fabric
collage (their choice) from my etsy shop~

Leave a comment on this post-be sure to include your email address
Event ends FEB 12th-I will draw on the 13th as i 'll be asleep when the time expires!

Good Luck!

While doing only minimal "organizing" today decided to work on some art. (finally) i was in an art slump there for awhile (figures when i had 2 wks off hardly did a thing) Here are a few "teaser" pictures of some pieces in progress. I'll post the whole image as i finish them. What are YOU working on?

Happy New Year

A few days late, but the sentiment stays the same~let's hope it is better than last yr.
Last fri-jan 2, i went to the other side of town to hang out with a friend. We hit goodwill, container store, $1 store, antique mall, pier 1 and lunch in there too~when we went back to her house i snapped some pictures of her art room-which she is in the middle of re-doing. (moving from another room) I am trying to purge and reorganize my room so thought i would share a picture of part of hers~because she is the queen of organized-it all looks like this picture. I'm to the point in my room where i just want to toss it all. minimalism~yea right.
