internationally collected water color artist who resides in Santa Fe. She turns 80 this year and I wanted to create a piece in her style. While she of course is a painter, I altered these papers in southwest themed colors for use in my work. The piece is entitled: "First Thaw." In addition to the papers, some of which are from the Paper Packet project, I used acrylics, water soluble oil pastels, artist crayons and gel pen. The work is 8 by 8 inches and is on canvas board.
I did manage to work a little further on the piece below. I have not titled it yet but I have a few ideas that I am ruminating on. I hope to take a quick picture later today. I probably won't get back to work on it till Monday as our weekend is shaping up to be really busy..that is nothing new :)
