Elephant

I just posted another collage in my Etsy shop. It's another mini collage and it was inspired by a grinning elephant that I saw during my last visit to the National Zoo.

A Potomac River Afternoon

Whew, this week has been a busy one already - I'm pretty good at keeping my hands busy. Anyway, I've gotten started on another possible portrait/figurative piece for my solo exhibition next year and I'll post progress pictures later. I'm also really itching to get started on more animal portraits, living near the zoo has its perks - it gives me plenty of opportunities to take pictures for future projects. Anyway, here's the finished collage that I've been working on recently:

Mixed Media Multiplied

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I've been pretty busy and the weekend definitely went by too fast for me, a common dilemma. I did a little gallery sitting for the Del Ray Artisans, so I took a few pictures of the "Mixed Media Multiplied" exhibition. Below are images of my mixed media paintings that were up - paintings that I did a while ago when I was in college. I also included a couple of photos of the overall exhibition so you can get an idea of the space.
