From the blue acrylic paintings, a digital collage

Here's a new digital collage that came about from the blue collage paintings that I was doing. By scanning the painting, overlaying some of my photos, and blending in Photoshop, this is the result. I'm planning on preparing some panels and transferring the images using Bonny Lhotka's SuperSauce technique. Will post when they're done!

Crystal on Martha Stewart - The Proposal

Just had to share this adorable clip of Crystal Hanehan (Vintage by Crystal from my Boston Handmade group) on Martha Stewart yesterday. It was her second time on the show demonstrating her adorable spun cotton creatures, but this time she had a BIG surprise, on LIVE television. Absolutely adorable. Congrats Crystal and Ben.

Going wherever it leads

It's been a while since I've posted anything, or created much, to be honest. Maybe it's the winter, but I've felt pretty uninspired lately. A trip somewhere is definitely needed! But in the meantime I decided to do something...anything...just to see where it lead...and like most of what I do, it lead to the patterns, textures and colors of nature. I used paper, tissue, acrylic and prismacolor marker and came up with these bits of abstract collages and paintings which remind me of ocean, forest, roots, topographic maps. I'm enjoying the "play time" and going wherever it leads.
