I've been extremely busy!

I have been asked to put some art in the art house for the home tour which is a house on the tour that is for sale and no furniture in it. There will be several artists displaying art work. At first I was told that I could put 6 pieces in. But in the last few days I was told that I have the whole 3rd floor! Yikes! So I have been creating some "She Art Girls".  Christy Tomlinson has a great workshop and if you have ever wanted to create a background--she's the one! I have had such fun creating these girls. I since I don't have to paint the face the pressure is off and it's a background free for all! Here they are.




                                    She is 8x24 and there is collaged Scripture around the sides.
Just one more below. You saw her a few posts back and she had another background but she just didn't look right. Everything was too busy so I added a blue background and she stands out better now. You can't really see them but she does have wings I cut from transparent film. The Scripture is about remembering to be kind to strangers because they just might be angels. That might be cheesy that I did her wings that way but I did it anyway. Couldn't resist. I will try to take a video of the studio tomorrow if I can. Whew!!!!!

What a great idea to have the empty home as an exhibit area. Surprise... the whole third floor is yours. Not a doubt that you'll fill it up beautifully.
