Here is the latest assemblage. It mostly "made itself' as I found all the pieces in one stop at a thrift store...except for the finials which I already had.

Most interesting, especially since it was made so close to the "Day of the Dead".

Altered Book: "OHara"

I was inspired by an artist I saw on the internet recently and ended up exchanging emails. I wanted to give a big '"Thank you" for his work, so decided to make him an altered book.
I ended up posting the 3rd picture twice..ooops... The central image of this picture was with permission from Tom O'Hara, who is the artist that the book was made for.

I was playing around with chrome paint and came up with this idea of a sun rising as you
"unzip" the world. So a made a zipper openng to reveal the sunrise. I made small squares painted chrome to illustrate "mountains." Everything except the sun is chrome painted. What fun!

This collage is about three time periods in which there was big unrest and "revolution".The time periods represented are:

the 1700's...the American revolution, the 1930-40's the second world war and the rise of the Nazi's, (there is a Nazi sign at the bottom left of the baby picture) , and the recent Chinese unrest.

Memory collage series

I started making a "memory collage series" I thought it would be an interesting project. I take vintage photos and make collages out tof them. My idea is maybe offer this as an art service to people. Take their vintage or loved photos and make collages out of them

1 I was lucky enough to find a bunch of dolls at a yard sale recently.
Naturally I got inspired to make some art!
Ths is the result
Doesn't look at all like the doll it came from!
( this is being added Sept. 28,2009.) Problem...I decided to show this piece at a recent art show and in transporting it, the "septer" got broken off and so far I have not found it. I'm so sad about this as I really liked it with the "septer".

Venus DeMilo

Been very lax about posting lately. Been busy. Have done a couple art shows and even one that was a one person show.!

Anyway, here is the latest.

I have fallen in love with this piece and maybe think I like it the best of all the assemblages I've done.

View of the World

Here is the top

View of the World

I am involved with an assemblage project called "Inside the Box".
Years ago I had made a cigar box assemblage and decided that this would be a good entry.
It shows how much Hollywood influences our views! Also shows everyone's view is their own.
Here is the top of the box, the inside cover and the inside.

I have been working on a project that required 5 small canvases. the project gave 5 words and one word is illustrated on each canvas. Some of the words were difficult to decide on an image!
Here are the words: potter, maintain, cob, calyx ( had to look it up), and nape.
Here is what I ended up making. You can try to decide which image goes with which word!

Got off on a strange kick with this three panel collage ( of sorts).
If you click to enlarge, you can see the word: remind me, a house is not a home.
I was rather taken with the concept of this but I am not that thrilled with how the end result turned out.

Been off line for awhile. My computer crashed and I had to replace my hard drive.
Been doing a lot of art in the meantime. Here is an "assemblage" of sorts I just finished.

Abstract "whatever" it is

Not sure what to call this abstract work. Much different than anything I've ever made before.

Budding Fiddlehead Ferns

Entering a new gallery show next month. The theme is gardens, plants, etc.
So I made this "Budding Fiddlehead Fern" picture.

page 2-6 of "V" book

Here are the rest of the pages for "V" Book

"V" book an altered book

Recently I completed an altered book. I made it for a very nice gentleman who works at the art store I go to frequently. He ohh's and ah's over the work I've showed him, so I thought I would make him a little book. Since he was born in Russia, I included imgs he would be familiar with.
Also included were images from two books I like: "Sacred Ground, Sacred Space: by RP Kryder and The Illuminated Rumi: illustrations by M. Green.

embroidery/ "crewel work"

Some time ago I was sent a package that contained a piece of embroidery called "crewel work" that I made one winter when I had two babies under 2 years old and no TV. ( yes, there was a time when people did not have TV!)
anyway, I thought I would post it. And NO WAY would I evn think about trying to do it ever again!
