Yep yep. In between "Look what I foundsfhosjrnwnviuagerowahfnosaiugofeaighfspegjsaphnf"

Collage, staining mediums, acrylics & washes & light & burnings & light & words and more words & light & glue but mostly photos on corrogated cardboard on wood.

It's easier to see yourself through eyes than thoughts.

I should just...yeah, right, ok.

Wow!!

Just exactly how big is this? I can guess but I hate doing that. :D

Is the glue what's making the cloudiness at the top?

Sorry Keef: 16" x 16" (not matted) It will probably be about 20" x 20" or so matted and set on wood. My brother's a carpenter...he's staining me wood etc. I want to use screws with antique covers or something different to mount my entire "Cardboard Collection" hahahaha.

I think it's a combination of pearlescent/lighting. ( the cloud thingy that is....)

Thanks for your "Wow!!"

So like, where are yours?

In the past, I often referred to successfull parenthood as having the skills of an invisible juggler. You know, be here now for this one while tending to the other, never once allowing either the distraction of being anything less than your world.

I see you have those skills for art. After I get the images of your panels out of my head, I might return to say something more coherent.

On their way, as soon as I can get a photo of the big one, and scan the smaller ones. (Or one, don't know if one's finished yet.)
I see that yer gonna be busy the next couple of months (yes I realize that was a different thread :D) does that mean I'll get to catch up to you in posting? (Are you sure you're only one person?)

Very interesting.
I like the sense of depth and use of images.

Somehow, I can't imagine how this would look IRL.

When it's completed could you post a pic of it somewhere in your house as you've done in the past? :)


The surface appears to be very glossy or having a sheen.
Does it IRL?

:D

I like the composition in this piece a lot!
Even your details could stand alone as finished pieces. :)

your encouragment is always appreciated.

Keef: uh huh

Nina: Thanks to you. Here's a shot, but am unsure it it's what you're really referring to? I've substituted a frame until the wooden mount is ready.

Dali Girl: That would be very handy if I was selling prints wouldn't it?!! :D Thanks to you too.

:) Just kidding: Liquitex Acrylic - Cadmium Yellow Light/L'Oreal Shock Proof Extreme Wear Nail Polish: French Tip White. ;)

Thanks Aurora :) The latest shot really doesn't portray the colors as they are, but it's probably because it's night time flash n all. Lookin' forward to the next in your series. :)

Stunningly and shockingly beautiful, Tam. Red and yellow seem to be your signature colors.

Is that William Shakespeare?

I think you forgot to list .22 shells in your materials list. ;)

Poor Tam Tam :crying: Poor Tree Fungi :crying: Nasty nasty Landlord !! :mad: Never mind Tam - how about erecting a little fence around the tree and remaining Fungi - plant a couple of little things in there and just tell your Landlord that you are beautifying the area or something to that extent :D

Yep - we all get days like that :confused: but it will pass :D
