loveland, colorado with Cloth Paper Scissors...

works in progress!

burlap and paper clay!

lights camera action!

i love this piece...a vintage paper doll dress on canvas!

well....two weeks ago I went to colorado to shoot a video with Cloth Paper Scissors! lots of prep work before the shoot, and butterflies for the first few takes....then it was actually rather fun....the video explains several different techniques i use in building up canvas/wood surfaces, ranging from plaster to burlap... to joint compound tape (it comes in polka dots) to paper crinoline. I am excited to have it come out (i think July) because honestley there are a couple spots where I am babbling away...oh and i wasn't looking in the right camera soooo they put a picture of johhny depp inside the camera so i was talking to him....although i am not sure johnny wants to learn how to use modeling paste and stencils....actually maybe he does. i will let you know when the video comes out! peace,love art!

eat cake painting!

assorted sideways small canvases! using layering techniques!

that is too, too funny about Johnny Depp in the camera -- I think it would have made me blush and swoon.

I'm with Dee - talking to Johnny might have made the video all wrong - wink, wink
but I can't wait to see the video of your techniques - will it be for sale?

Hahaha, Sue. Johnny Depp! I told them I didn't want to look at Johnny - he was the last thing I needed! I loved eavesdropping on your video. It looked darn good from where I was sitting on the other side of that peek-a-boo mirror.
