Progress Picture #2: Snorkeling

Whew, it's been a busy week. Working away on collages--commissions and work for one of my solo exhibitions next year. I'm also working on preparations for packaging for handmade magnets that I'm going to add to my Etsy shop soon. I created some handmade magnets a while back, but now I'm going to work on a new batch with higher quality materials.

Anyway, here's my latest progress picture for my "Snorkeling" collage:

Owl

I hope everyone has had a great weekend! It's been pretty dreary here, although today is a beautiful autumn day thus far.

I was pretty good about working on my studio art this weekend. This little owl guy is part of my mini autumn collage series.

The Arts Build Communities

Yesterday I gallery-sat at the Del Ray Artisans for their "The Arts Build Communities" exhibition. I have a couple of collages on display there, "The Guitar Man" and "A Potomac River Afternoon," and both of them are marked Not for Sale since I might use them for my solo exhibition at the Art League Gallery in July. The exhibition opened on October 2nd and will last until the 25th.

Here are a few pictures I took of the exhibition:

Progress Picture #1: Snorkeling

I could have sworn that my last post was only yesterday. It always amazes me when a week can sneak by that fast.

Here's the sketch for my next piece, "Snorkeling."

Halloween Squash

I completed another mini collage for my autumn series. I'll post this on Etsy when it's back up from some site maintenance. I hope everyone had a great weekend - and if you have off today, I hope you have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the day.

Music in your Dreams

I'm finished at the moment with this one--if you take a look at the last progress picture, you'll notice the piece hasn't changed too much. Thus I think I'll stay away from this collage for a bit and then I'll be able to return to it with new eyes.

Autumn Flowers

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had some beautiful autumn weather in the Washington, D.C. area.

And, as far as my collage work has gone this weekend, I created another mini collage for my autumn series.
