New Work and Chit Chat

It's March 1 and Spring is just around the corner. I am so ready to see some sunshine! But on to more important things.......ART! I find I spend almost all my time when not at my day job down in the studio. I have been experimenting with some image transfers these past few days. I have only used one so far in a piece. Let me know what you think.

This is a 24 x 30 x 1 1/2, mixed media on canvas. The transfer image doesn't show up really well but I think you can tell where it is. I think it is pretty cool and will be working with more image transfers. This transfer was done with clear packing tape. I will be experimenting with transfers using a variety of things, including clear gesso, clear caulk, some transparency film, etc. I will post something about how each of these different techniques worked for me and how to do them.

A couple of other pieces have been hanging around the studio for quite a while and they finally told me what they needed to be finished.
This is another 30 x 24 x 1 1/2, mixed media on canvas. And the last one I finished up this weekend.

Also, 30 x 24 x 1 1/2, mixed media on canvas. I'm really happy with the way these turned out. This one is hanging in my entry way to my house right now....:)

On another note, I just realized that all the people I'm following (about 190) cannot see my blog if they click on me on their following page. I guess I have to go through every one i'm following one by one and re-set my profile to my Blogger profile. What a pain that is going to be. I was working on some of them and kept getting an error message. ??? I'll get them done slowly but surely.

Well off for now. Until next time.
