Busy as a bee today

I have about 10 million things to do in the next few days. I have one more trade to finish, lots to mail, laundry and errands to do. I am shutting down my Etsy later today until I get back. I can't believe it's already Wednesday and I only have 4 more days to get ready to be gone 2-3 weeks. It's really hard to be gone that long! Yikes!

This is for my friend Verna. We're doing a bee swap.

Queen Bee

This is a 4 x 6 collage using a face from, a body from Flickr's Okinawa Soba, shoes scanned from a magazine, wings from, and a little crown made from a 100 year old encyclopedia page. The face and body were printed in black and white and hand-colored after printing and trimming. These pieces were attached to a background made from merging a picture from Flickr's imagesbykim, a texture from Flickr's Dogtired, and a texture from Flickr's 'Playingwithbrushes' in photoshop.

I have a few more pieces I want to make before I go. We'll see if they get done! Hope you have a great day!

Lucky Verna, although I am lucky to own a piece of your work also. I love the stuff you do. I had a friend over the other day and she went gaga over your collage. Thought you would like to know.

We shouldn't be surprised by the Queen Bee's sneakers. She can hardly run in her stiletto heels! Gorgeous painting. Your colours are just stunning.
