The Marriage Trees

A wedding gift because to me these trees look like they are embracing and growing entwined.

Here is a self-portrait I did last week. I finally got a picture of it without too much glare.

Pretty Bird

Mixed Media
on wooden end table

My grandfather made a set of these wooden tables many, many years ago.  They had gotten to be in such bad condition (peeling veneer and major stains) that we were going to throw them out.  But they were solid wood and so very sturdy, I decided I had nothing to lose if I tried painting and collaging them.  I love how they turned out.  This is the first one. The second one is soon to follow.

Collage and Watercolor

I just took a painting in watercolor and collage class. It was so much fun and it really opened by eyes to all that can be done with collage and paint. Now of course, I have to buy lots of new art supplies. What fun! I haven't stopped doing them since I got home. Here is one I did that I really like.  I expect there will be more to come.
