I started a new mixed media piece on Sunday after church and I just finished it this afternoon. I am calling it "This is My Time". There is a lot of personal symbolism on this piece for me about where I am at this time in my life and I must say I am very happy with how it turned out.
Here it is. . .
A friend of mine talked to me a week ago about creating some pieces for a gallery in Texas that is interested in seeing some of my work. This is the first of those pieces. Sadly I am not sure I can sell this one - but we will see.
So here is a little bit about what's on this piece in case you are interested. It is a 10x10 stretched canvas mounted on a 12x12 canvas board. There is a ton of fun texture on this baby - modeling paste, computer components, lots of bits and pieces from guitars (thank you Deborah!), some Tim Holtz metals and lots of stuff from the hardware store and several mulberry paper flowers, just to mention some of the many embellishments on this piece. Then of course there is a ton of acrylic paint, inks and sprays.
I love the look of the double canvas construction on this piece - but it does present some hanging issues. I have to add a wire hanger to the back still so I can get it up on my wall, but I could not find my mounting wire today.
So this is what I have been spending my time on the past few days. It was a great time for me!
What have you been doing that you can say was BLISS? If your answer is "nothing" I challenge you to find your bliss this week!
until we meet again. . .
