Christmas work...

Over the last few weeks I have been inspired to use some of my techniques on pillow covers with a Christmas theme...using general painting and the mosaic technique, I finished about a dozen they are!

Mosaic Workshop

Last Saturday I attended a mosaic workshop at the Lakewood Arts Council Gallery by Kathy Thaden, master mosaic artist! It was great fun..I did stained glass mosaic on glass and others did mosaics on various sorts on a 6x6 wood panel...our homework was to finish the cutting and gluing activities of our Saturday we will learn grouting technique and then I'll post some photos of the finished work!

'By the Door' Banner

This small banner was done for my in-laws to place beside their new entry reflects their love for the mountains of Colorado...the size is 9" x 15, acrylic on black canvas.

Figure Painting

As a result of the figure drawing class mentioned earlier, I have just completed a painting of my son (now 22) when he was about with his Dad on our pond in SC, he was more interested in the bait than the was fun to do, especially the tall pine tree reflections in the murky water, and brought back many memories of great times there....this 20x16 acrylic on canvas painting will be entered in the upcoming "Child's Play" exhibit at the LAC Art Center & Gallery Sept 7 - 25..the opening reception is Sept 10, 6-7:30 pm...stop by and enjoy!
