I am taking the summer off, and so far I’m enjoying the hell out of it. I have never had a real summer off like this, so I’m spending a lot of time doing exactly what I want to do. We’ve done some home improvement projects, and, I’ve done a lot of painting and mixed media art.
This is a mixed media piece I created to enter a challenge. It started out as just decorated canvas but the more I worked with it the more screwed up it got until I had ot just fall back and start over altogether. As the challenge was to use the color pink, I opted for spray painting the canvas in many shades of such a lovely color. Then I added some mixed media embellishments that were also painted, along with a silk flower or two, and some handmade clay flowers and butterflies. It’s not my best work but it was fun to make and I’m sure I’ll find something to do with it.
