    Nov 21 2006: CLOUDS


    Today's topic for Found Art Tuesday is CLOUDS. I made this card thinking of a landscape in a snowball (I just found out they're called snowglobes and not snowballs! duh!) , but there's no snow in it, just a really pretty sunset sky.

    The sky is actually a recycled art project my daughter made in school. They used huge filters for coffee and painted them with water based tempera. I think the outcome was so interesting I just had to use it somehow, the landscape is inspired by Deanna Wood and also Claudine Hellmuth, I used green paper for the hills and different papers for the houses. The details are made with white acrylic paint. It's made on a 5 x 4 watercolor paper postcard and since today is the closing on our house, I think I'll leave this somewhere in the lawyer's office (If they're nice!)

    Love it! You are so clever my dear! So did you leave it at the lawyers office? And congrats on the closing. When is the big move?

    Oh, this is lovely - (I found your blog via Kathy's).

    And thanks for the link to Deanne's blog - I graduated last year and am currently trying to get my foot in the door of the artworld too, so that will be most helpful.
