my friend lynn, who is a fabulous sculptor specializing in horses (see her website here) was the only studio visitor tonight.
we had a great time talking about music, a mutual passion, and working on our various projects. i was working on starts of things, b/c the buffalo (which i see i haven't posted in progress yet, sorry) is scary for me right now. i didn't want to think or have to have an end product that looked realistic. this is when it's handy to do mixed media.
this is bleeding tissue paper that promises all sorts of wonderful effects. evidently gel medium isn't wet enough to cause those, tho. water or nothing. so i wet them down to get the bleed and the gel'd over that. more than one way...... you know.... they might be more fun to collage on watercolor paper.
here's a sample of the evening's projects.
these two are very close, and i'm hoping that if i post them here and look again later i will have that big AHA moment that tells me what to do (or that, as has happened so often, one of you will help me figure it out).
i think the AHA on this is- it's done, leave it alone.....
hope everyone (in the us) had a great 4th. we saw lucinda williams on sunday (she was very very good) and watched fireworks with friends last night. back to work tomorrow. ugh. at least i like my job & it's a 3 day week- just hard to change gears!
