I've been busy since getting my strength back after a long 4 months of no desire to create.
Took a few classes with Chris Cozen and Riki Schumacher at Liz's Loft over the past month or so. A few things I've done on my own. "Red Sails" and "Finding Joy" I started in Chris' class and they ended up not looking anything like what it started out to be. "Red Sails" is abstract which I don't do often because I find it difficult. I much prefer to work on a subject I can recognize like "Delphine". I will have them scanned and maybe sell them.
The bird subjects were in Riki's weekend long workshop. I love taking classes and learning new techniques. I never get enough...
The little bird in a cage was created around a metal box which opens, perhaps a pill box originally. It stands about 10" and since I collect odd bird items, this was a perfect addition.
The necklace is large and a bit heavy but definitely makes a statement. I hung mine on the wall among my bird things.
I'm now taking an online class to learn to paint animals. I have my four fur babies and I can practice on them. Watch for them...
