I decided to get brave and work on a canvas. I glued on torn pages from books and sheet music. Then, I rolled on Golden's Yellow Ochre and Nickel Azo Gold. In charcoal, I drew the outline of a bird on a limb with a few leaves. My image is a beautiful Paper Whimsy girl and several other images of stamps and such. The bird button is Debbie Mum's. Some lace in one corner finished it off. And that is finally how I did my first canvas!
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.
