In the meantime enjoy a work in progress that I started and almost finished today...
It is huge...30 by 40. It was so much fun to do. I took little bits from my life. Like pictures of my loves, a poem Glenn wrote to me when we were dating, an old newspaper clipping of our family winning a grand prize drawing from Shopko (it was a trip to Disneyland!!) and other great little memories. I started it with a painting from my birthday party last year that I didn't love. Every time I have a party I put out a canvas and paint and ask my friends to add a little before they leave but this one was just way too busy. Glenn did write I love you on it so I never wanted to cover it...that is until I thought of this idea. I started by laying out larger pieces of paper, photos and labels. When most of the space was filled in I added smaller elements. Once I had all of the paper down I started accenting with acrylic paint and marker. There is still much to do...more layers of marker, paint, and whatever else I decide to put on it. I think it may be a never ending project which is what makes it so fun. I am calling it my life painting.
I really want to thank my art "sisters" in the melange team on etsy. It is really because of them and the new challenge that I found what I am sure is my true style. They are all very special friends to me and although we may never meet I cherish their friendship and inspiration! So hugs to all of you.
Have a great weekend...I know I will!!
