I haven't shown it on the blog in a while so here you go...

This 24" x 48" piece uses many of the techniques that I am hoping to explore on my own and in Art 205. Basically, I am incorporating highly textured handmade paper into an acrylic painting on canvas. In this case the houses are handmade paper and the background is plaster and paint. For a look at how this was done you can begin with this post.
I just completed my first ever college art class (Art 105). Good experience, weak instructor. I debated about continuing with another class. KVCC has an artist-in-residence from the Netherlands right now and she visited our last class and contributed greatly. That one experience, that took less than 45 minutes, was enough to sway me. Yep, I'm registered for Art 205 and it starts this Thursday.
PS. Our garage sale (mentioned in my last post) was a huge success. Lots of stuff gone including piles and piles of new toys from Steve's sample room. Still have a sleeper/sofa left as well as a nice office credenza. Anyone?
