Above all else I am an artist. I have been doing art all my life but it has taken until now to say and to believe that I am an artist. And I am really proud that I at 52 can say that this is who I am.
Do I say this because I sell my art or that I have had a show or that I have been in a gallery? No I say this because this is who I am and if I never sell another piece of art again it will not change who I am or my belief in my god given ability to create.
For Fun Monday I added a picture I made about my mother. I feel nostagic about my mom. She has passes over 20 years ago. But mom is always mom and I still miss her. I also added a second digital image I made of mom. I guess this piece was inspired by my mom's struggle with her mental illnesses she had late in life.
Look at this cute doll Linda made! So cute, so funky! Every thing I love! Oh what am I going to do we only have 2 left and the next one is mine! I have really loved and enjoyed each and every ornament I have received.
I am so honored to be trading with these talented ladies!
This beautful paper garland is not givien justice in my photo here. I put it on my 2 ft tree, but it is not Christmas themed so you can use it all year round. I got to make one of these Corrine, I am inspired.
I gessoed a file folder. Glued some black and white papers to it. Used some rubber stamps. Painted transparent blue and gold with gel medium. Drew images with black paint. stamped with foam stamps using gesso. Dripped pink ink over the surface. I think it needs something else. I plan to glue scrap book paer to the inside and sew around the edges.
