happy 2013!

yes, there has been art made- just not much blogging. will work on getting to a weekly post in 2013, including more about process and less reportage. it's been crazy and i need to plan better.
 
first up is the finished rustic dance from 2 posts ago.  i wanted the photo to stand out less from the background and for the whole thing to look more- well, rustic. a few washed of paint and some spatters later i'm calling it done. 12x12 mixed media.
 
 
snowfall, completed, 12x12 mixed media

 
this is for our boise open studios show "opening doors- a glimpse into the artists' mind". still working on a title. 8x8 mixed media.

 
 
in addition to the BOSCO show, it's time for Valentines for AIDS, an annual fundraiser held at a local coffee shop. below is an idea for my piece.

 
i tried putting the strings together with self leveling gel tonight, we'll see how this works out- it's working toward a "tangled web" theme- tho i like the shape of the top heart much better & may be heading to the studio to fix this while there's still time:)

 
lovely studio evening with nancy & sue- a bit of champagne to ring in the new year- here's to a fabulous 2013 for all!

Happy 2013, Marianne! Sometimes it's so hard to find time for art, FB & a blog! Keep up that art...I love each & every piece you shown here. They all have a wonderful & peaceful feeling.

You've been busy! Thank goodness "rustic dance" is finished - I like the distant views and the way the bird keeps bringing the eye back (but not too much). The door is wonderful, Marianne. Are you saying the red background on the heart changed completely to black?? Nooooooo! Luckily, I'm not an artist - I get stressed just by your changes!
