february....is here....

i was playing around with my photo editing and was making some collages of my work....the year in art if you will! i feel i am bursting with ideas lately, could be the long winter....i have a very exciting article coming out in the March/April Cloth Paper Scissors....exciting for me because there are several pieces of art featured and they combine, painting, sculpture, found objects, humor..all things i love and when you can-wham-bam-thank you ma'am- them all together in a series of artwork, well it's a good thing!

portraits on wood....in this month's CLoth PaPer SciSsors....

these pieces are in the Jan.-Feb. issue of Cloth Paper Scissors....here are some up close and personal shots of the work. mixed media with fabric,papers,wood....etc.  and lo-and -behold some stitchery!



i feel love the layering and getting my angst out by scraping and globbing the paint around....and YIKES i sat at a sewing machine! Mrs. VAughn (8th grade home ec) would be proud. Mrs. Vaughn taught me a few things....clean as you go.....break eggs into a custard cup one at a time as you bake, and then add to the recipe,she also taught me how to make a panda pillow, thank you Mrs. Vaughn.
