Another in my Terrarium series, print is available here. I love the colors in this one, especially the red and aqua against the orchid-y purple.
Speaking of the color "orchid" ("Radiant Orchid" being a past Pantone Color of the Year) how are you feeling about this year's color, "Marsala"? I have to admit it is not my favorite. Maybe I'll try to embrace it and see how it goes.
The Truth About Flying Fish, collage on panel, 8x10", 2015
Here's a sweet collage I made for Papirmass' and Brwnpaperbag's Collage Contest… I was paired up with talented Greek artist Georgia Grigoriadou for a materials exchange (I am a sucker for a materials exchange!) and I had a lot of fun with it, despite the thread-sticking-to-my-glue-crusted-fingers issue.
Here's the first of a series of terrarium images I've been fiddling with-- this little pretty is in my shop as a print, with more to come soon. I am finally feeling better after three (yes, THREE) flus all in a row. I have all of my fingers crossed that my littlest one will not bring home any more bugs from preschool!
I'm proud to be a part of this show, opening tomorrow night at the Pico House Gallery in Historic El Pueblo Historical Monument, Los Angeles. If you are in LA, please come by! The show is up until March 22nd. xoxo
Well, that's not entirely true -- I've been posting photos here and there for years, but it's been mostly pictures of the kiddos, and I've never really followed anyone -- but now I am including some art and some "works in progress" photos like the one above.
Here's the 2nd in my "little creepies" set, this one uses red thread on a vintage photo and dictionary page. The thread in these pieces is attached with matte medium, there's no sewing involved. Truly a study in patience! And dexterity. And patience.
A piece I've had finished for some time now but am just now posting. Navy blue thread on vintage photo and dictionary page, 5x7"-ish, with thread extending to 11x14"-ish. I love this piece. It's a little haunting. I secretly call this piece and its companion piece "the little creepies"… will post the other piece tomorrow :)
I have some new work to share -- above is a quadriptych on four 6x6 canvases made with miscellaneous papers, drawing and press-on type; the white space is flat matte, and the image area within the circle is covered with a thick, high gloss gel. They are pretty cool looking in person.
I'm going to be starting a month of creating daily beginning in February, perhaps sooner, so you will be seeing a lot more of me around here. Until then, here are some close ups below!
