created by hand! Earth

My statue and then a little digital painting!

3 Muses!

I made this 3"x 5" assemblage for an Ofrenda in Oaxaca for Day of the Dead.
Ofrendas are shrines to honor those who have died and you leave flowers and gifts to honor them. This picture is of vera, an artist and friend who lived in Brazil. She is holding 1 of her favorite cats. I never met her in person, but we were friends for 3 years. I know, that doesn't sound like much time to form a closeness to someone but we really did connect. She died of cancer(3 years ago) . Too young. This was part of a shrine some art friends made to honor those special people in our lives. It was part of a Michael De Meng workshop.
So she had her crown and she had her flowers.

Blue Monday!

Mixed Media Monday! Look what I found!

1 1/2"x 1 1/2" soldered glass pendant!!!!
See the lumpy part on top? This was my first soldered piece 3 years ago and the lumpy part is supposed to be where I soldered the link so I could have a pendant. It didn't work too well but I kept it any way!
I liked this magazine garden picture and decided to make it the background. Then It reminded me of Monet's pink garden house so I made the house pink. The image made me think it could be one of Monet's family looking out the window.
A bit of a stretch for the theme, but I really did just find this in a box in my studio!


Sunday postcard! Lots to Do!
