Here's a Work-In-Progress: my daughter requested a pretty girl with a sunshine to hang in her kitchen. This one is on canvas...with lots of layers already! (scrap papers, gesso, acrylics, glitter, water soluble pastels, tissue paper, colored pencils, stamping....added some sparkling watercolor to the sky after the pic was taken...) I am thinking I will add some flowers...and she needs to be holding something....and she might get a furbaby friend or some butterflies...and maybe a special word added to the picture....anyhow I am having lots of fun working on something larger, and really feeling pretty free to pick up whatever strikes my fancy and add it. Gotta Love Mixed-Media!!

Yay! Today is "fake friday" since my office is closed tomorrow. So ready for a nice long holiday weekend. Hopefully at least one day will be spent in the studio...and family BBQ at my sis' house on the 4th, yay! I'm bringing the strawberry shortcake for dessert...yum!

Here's a little set of 4x4 pages I just made...they are all spoken for already...two will get ribbons and such added to them, and one is being made into a wall hanger with wire and beads. The middle one is my favorite...maybe just because we do each have our own "Unique Vision" of the world. And there are so many ways to express what we see through our words, work, actions, and ART. A topic worth exploring perhaps....
