This assemblage is called “I’m Sorry”. That’s a veiled reference to my reluctance to ring these bells and disturb someone who likely stepped away from their post for a good reason. The nine bells are superglued to a wood panel. I thought I might paint it but I’m happy with it just as is. Thanks for visiting!
This little collage was made on the smartphone. I used 4 images of roses, shot at the same time, with the same lighting. I took the 4 into PS express on the iPhone and collaged them using a provided template. I then saved the collage and brought it into Photo Toaster, where I added a texture effect. I'm playing with some of the apps on the smartphone as I'll be teaching them in my Digital Photography class this fall. Thanks for visiting!
I've been saving the pits from our wonderful Palisade Peaches, planning to use them in a piece or two. This tree has been sitting in the studio for a long time, with too much space on the bottom. I decided to line up some of the beautiful peach pits along the bottom and then coat the piece with wax. I'm happy with the result. Thanks for visiting!
This little collage was inspired by the women in my little artist book class this summer. Breaking some rules I've always worked by: covering the entire surface of the piece, making things big, making things match, avoiding the number 13. 13 has been lucky for me so I'm celebrating it here. Enjoy and thank you for visiting.
