I have a new piece on my web site, for those who'd like to look.
It's made from mi-tientes paper, handmade paper, sand, beads, acrylic paint, colored pencil, and wool

What fun, Arlene! I love the way the dog is jumping out of the picture after the frisbee. Your work makes me feel happy and optimistic. I like the way you included people from different races.

Arlene..love this! Perhaps someday you will tell us the secrets of bas relief paper..I have just bought a bunch of polymer clay..sort of a relief (hobby?) from the studio painting and am interested in sculpture using craft materials. I do not have space to create in real clay, so will play with the polymer stuff. Do you sell your paper work? I would be interested in carrying it in my gallery..think you have a real feel for this! I just got back from the outer banks of NC..hey! I saw these people! Love the dog givin' dynamics to the composition!

Thanks Sandy,
The dog was lots of fun to do. I took dolls wool and glued it onto the paper, and then cut out the shapes and then shaped the "hair" on the dog. At first I had done him in a light tan, but after I did the man throwing the frisbee, I realized I need the dog to be dark to balance out the man.

arlene..loved your art! You have captured the feeling and expressions of the various characters (and the all too familiar poses of the beach scene!).I enjoy 3-dimensional work such as yours and have just recently used paper mache to model and create with..It's fun to escape from a flat page and get playful with art!! heather...a.k.a.

Cheryl,
I just wish I had the time to create all the pieces that are in my head. Both the beach scene and the diner were rolling around in the grey matter for almost 2 years.
Right now, I have three ideas that I'd like to have time to do.
A window shopping scene [which will be my darkest piece], a mother/daughter scene, and the ladies morning walking club.
