had an open house at the studio this afternoon for the folks who have been asking about how it turned out. and pam & nancy came over to make art. sometimes being a ski widow is OK.
so in addition to having company, i got to make art. here's the valentine for aids piece so far. the heart is heavy soft gel & will dry clear.
this is the start of another photo based mixed media piece. we'll see how far i can push the mixed media photo stuff in the gallery. there are only 5 photographers allowed to be juried in at one time. so i can't hang/sell photos. thus the question about the rose hip piece. i had a photographer and a gallery member (2 different people) there today both of whom thought i should call it mixed media & hang it.
we'll see :) this was a bw photo colored with markers. i am building a frame with paper & crackle paste.
pam, nancy (chewing, sorry nancy!) and patty working away. lynn is in the corner behind me. the little studio holds a few women- it's a good thing :)
here's the table after everyone left. the piece on the right is an 11x14 that i had painted red, but added the paper to today.
fun day! nice to get to know lynn better. click the link to visit her blog. lynn does beautiful horse sculptures and is really generous sharing her technique. and we share a love of music, which was fun to discover.
tomorrow is hiking, packing, some work & preparing for next week's travel. football w/hub, maybe a bit of art. you'll know if that happens :)
