Collage in my "House "Series

This is a collage I finished today. I started a while back when I made my other house collage. I tried to stay with a burnt sienna and rust theme with the blue added in. I used a lot of brown chalk to outline and blend. This seemed to give it some depth. Lots of layers are here. I started with some glued down text, music score, and ledger paper. Then layers of tissue paper and lace rice paper for the sky. After gessoeing the houses , I started adding texture with different papers. I also used stamps and rub ons. I have one more house spread in my altered book I’m working on. I love architecture so houses appeal to me. Thanks for stopping by.

EDM sketches for the New Year.

This is a fun lamp I picked up at a yard sale. It
reminds me of the art noveau style. It has water
lily metal base. It was fun but a little difficult
to draw.

Reorganizing My Studio

I spent all weekend getting my studio in shape. It used to be my son's room until he moved off to college in Indiana. Now, he doesnt get home much so I decided to get things cleaned up. I went to Target and got these neat containers and labeled them to be able to sort and find things. The second picture is my TV and dvd so I can watch art videos while I am creating. Im still working on that. I also need to get some of my art matted and hung in the room to make it bright and colorful. Now Im all ready to create!!
