A little art . . .

Still painting the house but I had to rest a bit yesterday and today. Took care of Etsy business, installed a new printer, did laundry and paid bills. I'm a little rusty making art - can't wait to get the projects done so I can work on art full time again. Today I just had to make something before the muses leave me completely. Plan to finish painting the main parts of the house by Saturday, put up the Christmas tree this weekend since it didn't get done last weekend as planned, do a bit of shopping for the long distance folks and work on art all next week. Feeling a bit better with a full week reprieve from mother nature. I'm hoping maybe she was just throwing me one last big good-bye party the last few months. We'll see I guess. Happy December 1st!

This is an approximate 5 x 7 collage using a face and body from flickr’s Very Good with Computers (both highly altered digitally and by hand). The wings in the headpiece are from Itkupilli.etsy.com, and the stars are from flickr’s cleome1. The hair was altered from a magazine picture. The background and border pieces are by designer Nicole Young (used with a commercial license) and cemerony.etsy.com and Cassiscreations.etsy.com. The black and white border was created from pieces from Crowabout.etsy.com. The girls at the bottom were used legally from the public domain and highly altered. The crowns on these girls are from keeperofthenest.etsy.com. Most of these pieces were hand colored and all were reprinted, hand trimmed with scissors and attached to the background.

I did the teeeeensiest bit of Christmas decorating here. Barely any but it's amazing the amount of holiday-ish-ness that gets added to a room by putting up one silvery tinsel tree!
Glad you're feeling better! And your latest piece is gorgeous!I particularly like the winged crown head piece. Very cool!

This is definitely one of my favorites! I LOVE this one....

I have to tell you this.....
Emma, the 5 yr. old granddaughter always wants to see "Nana with the Wings" when she comes into my studio. You seem to have made a big impression on the next generation of Artists!

TFS!
