I haven't done a blog challenge in forever...so I've got to get back into the swing of things with one of my favorites...Take a Word. The theme is Mothers and I've used an image from Moonlight Journey and the lamp is a resin piece painted with a bit of metallic gold. Thanks for visiting!
Seems like I've abandoned my blog. Knee surgery knocked the wind out of me. It certainly didn't go as expected...not a piece of cake! Not a comedy of errors, just problems and infections and strains. Geez! Anyway, I didn't feel like making art, I did some things...threw away things too. This, tho, is a canvas I made a while ago. The BG was made a long while ago, the woman's picture was found and then very slowly I chose items to put on the canvas. Then, last night, a title came to me. I think it's a result of the surgery...the word can't be seen very well, but it's ESCAPE. :o)
My friend, Vicky, at Vicky's Place is hosting a new challenge called "Teddy Time". Who can resist a teddy bear? I just happen to have painted one on a wooden tag. His name is "Happy". If you'd like to submit a teddy for the contest, here's the link to Vicky's blog:
Here it is - 6 March - and we finally get some measurable snow in Northern Virginia. Oh well, it's spring. That's okay. I spent the day just doing a little of this and that, otherwise known as not much of anything. But I thought I'd share a creation I made for Moonlight Journey. The background is wood and I have a small splinter to prove it! LOL!! But it was lots of fun to put together. Hope you like it!
Thought I would share a matchbox creation I made for my group. I'm late mailing it out...have been down and out with a really hideous sinus infection (guess I've been making up for not having one last year, maybe?) Anyway, you'd think I'd be making lots of art, the only thing I've been doing is sitting around wondering where the energy went.
So, here is my Fantasy piece for Take a Word. I have a confession...I'm finding some young adult books are fun to read. Gillian Summers, just found her Fairie Folk Trilogy, young girl, trees, Renaissance Faire...just started it. Like the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel (who was a real person), Michael Scott has written 5 wonderfully creative books...but anyway, I digress...if you like fantasy without bodice ripping scenes, these are pretty interesting reads. I was thinking about these books while I made this ATC. Whatever you decide to do today...much happiness!
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
