yikes! another artless week-

i am still dragging along in the art creating area..... haven't even been so good at photos lately. i do a daily photo on my great wide open art facebook page, and at a loss the other day i found the one below, threw a few filters on it & posted- it is now one of the more highly rated (ie "liked" images) that i have ever posted, with more viral than organic views. ok. huh. it clearly connects. which is good- that's the goal, it's just that this one took me a bit by surprise. which is a great thing about making art :)
 
 
back in the studio tonight (finally! haven't been there since last tuesday- which is why studio night is so important) with pam & nancy.

mixed media play- this is a packing tape transfer- love how clear the image is (laser print, packing tape, burnish the image on to the tape, soak the tape and rub the paper off). this is a double width of tape. 6x6 canvas

 
this is an 8x8 canvas. the transfer in this case is a laser print onto some sort of flake medium. i didn't love the result, but i wanted to use it anyway. the blackbird is another packing tape transfer. this one may be nearly done.


and the falcon... who i also think may be done. this is one where i feel like it needs something more, but i think that maybe i need to know when to stop too. the detail i put up on facebook got such great response that maybe i should just call it done. what do you think?

 
i will probably miss next week- mom & dad get here on tuesday for thanksgiving, so no studio night, and probably not much art in general- just nice time together.
 
see ya in a few weeks-

Gosh I think you HAVE been busy art-wise!
Love what's going on with the birds and nests. I have never tried the tape transfers, but this seems to be a good time.
Thought of you yesterday afternoon when I was out in the yard seeking camera fodder; heard a screeching call, looked up and a massive hawk was right on the top of the electric pole! I raised the camera~~~off it flew....majestic wingspan.
Maybe some things are meant to be recorded in the mind only.

XXOO~~

Yes, yes definitely done on the falcon. DONE! That pic is so evocative - so "western" with both image and sepia coloring. I like it a lot. Have a great T-giving with your folks. Hi to them. I came to the mts alone today. Bob stayed in Denver. Had to water my plants and check the house. Hardly any snow, but I can hear the snow guns when I step outside.
