Happy Saturday!

It is the kind of beautiful perfect California day you see in the movies. Not hot, not cold, warm enough for shorts, balmy, beautiful. I have had the house to myself today and struggled through my last piece since I have been working on it off and on since yesterday morning. What a detour I took from where it started out.

Just Imagine


copyright by Marsha Jorgensen 3/28/09
5 x 7 collage using a face from Spark Your Imagination's Elements No. 1, body from lisaslalteredart.etsy.com, wings from phenomenon1859.etsy.com, shoes and legs from personal photograph scraps, all reprinted, trimmed, and hand-colored, letters for words from public domain, all arranged on scrap papers.

I am off to shower and go to Micheal's for mats. Today is my do what I want day so I may try to add another piece before the day is over. Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

If this was a struggle, it certainly doesn't show in the final piece. I headed over to Etsy to see if it was there, and to my great pleasure (for you) and disappointment (for me), it was already sold. Congratulations!!! I love that your work is flying off the shelves! Go Marsha, go Marsha, go Marsha! (There's a dance that goes with that. I'll let you use your imagination.) :) Hugs! Shelly
