So many choices!
Then, I decided to add the shape of a house, to add to my house theme collection! I didn't have an acrylic painting of one of my little houses. After adding layers of paint, I decided it needed more embelishments, so I created some 3D pots of flowers out of clay. After glazing and firing, I glued them to the canvas. I think it needs some more work with some detail or added dimension somewhere. So it is a work in progress. You may see it again someday.
This summer, I plan to play around a lot more with the mixed media materials. Mixed media really seems to be a popular technique with artists today. I have been seeing more and more magazines, blogs, workshops and websites that showcase some really cool mixed media art.
So many choices...and not enough time! I have old books! I could alter them, I could cut out of them and use parts of pages! I can create some printed text with my computer printer! But I also need to making lots of little houses and some new things that I'm thinking about. So there's never enough time! But that is a great feeling to have alot of ideas jumping around in there.
I hope to show some of my progress with a variety media and techniques this summer. So many things to do, not enough time in a day for me to play!
I'm off to play in the studio. Have a nice day!
