Well here’s to hoping I can grow…. as an artist and as a person, since I’m probably not going to get any taller. (I belong to the 5 foot and under group)
So, this is my latest….
I layered acrylic paint, papers, and texture medium on an 8×8 canvas. Then embellished with vintage clip art I got from flickr’s Collage Images group, and added wings made from vintage french text. I fashioned a nest from moss and a wood egg that I painted. “Grow” is made from a distressed ‘deluxe’ scrabble tile, cut paper, a watch face and a regular scrabble tile. The black dots in the upper L corner are old snaps and buttons are vintage from a collection my mom sent me.
This is one of the pieces I will be entering into a jurried show tomorrow. I really hope I will get in because I one of my beeswax collages is in a commercial for the show – and wouldn’t it suck if I didn’t get my art IN the show?!! The chances are probably slim to none, as over 300 enter and they only take 100. I don’t do the usual ‘look’ you see around here…. everyone does coasty stuff. Oh well, I can’t get it if I don’t try, right? I won’t find out till Nov. 1st, cross your fingers for me.
