A wonderful month is winding down....

...the weather this month has been a roller coaster - from low's in the 20's to beautiful day as this one has been with temps nearly 70.  Opened the doors and windows and let the fresh air in.
The photos show the change from Nov 12 to Nov 22.  From brilliant colors to bare branches.  It has the look of winter...but thankfully no snow....yet....
And now down to business.  Worked a arts and crafts show yesterday with the positive of numerous accolades on my art and photos.  But sadly, minimal sales.  Did share my business card with many folks and exchanged art ideas {ATC's and Citra Solv}...so some good may still come from it.
Did list a photo on etsy for sale and if you would like as a unframed print, send me an email. {it is photo of alarm on side of the old Glence Mill in Burlington}  Additional photos are framed and ready to go as well...just not on etsy.
The photo of dewdrops is printed on metal and rests in a floating glass frame.

Last to note here is a framed butterfly creation...this is
a tape transfer mounted on textured wallpaper...yes you read that correctly.  Old textured wallpaper can be highlighted and makes an ideal background for various creations.

Now on to December....HO HO HO.......

The cold has arrived way tooooo early...

...but the upside is focusing on a few creations for upcoming art show.  A few bookmarks...

Under the Sea so Deep...

Finished a creation that has been in the works for nearly five months...had to wait on the right materials ... the right words.  
This is a mdf board covered in Golden Crackle Paste that was then painted and sealed.  
The ship is citra solv applied to National Geographic...then copied on laser color printer.  Last step was to use matt decoupage material to the copy and finally remove the paper from the copy.  Now you might understand why it took some time...and had to wait for the parts to bring themselves together.  
















Our lives are like islands in the sea, or like trees in the forest, which commingle their roots in the darkest underground.   -- William James

Been busy...as this will tell


Again...show and no tell.  Other than to say wandered quite a few beautiful places since last post.  There has been time at home - - creating & playing but nothing to show just yet.


AND speaking of shows, will be participating in the Art & Craft Show - Unity in Greensboro  November 29, 2014.  If you are in the area, stop by and see the multitude of artists that will be there ...
