On Saturday I attended a Mixed Media Workshop at the 2nd Helpings Gallery in Roanoke. We transferred photos onto contact paper and then applied them to our Mixed Media piece. This is my completed 12 x 12 piece and, no surprise, Jake was my subject. It was such fun to get out and be with other artists.
The workshop was hosted by The Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge. I hope they decide to have more workshops. I sure enjoyed this one.
I am taking a Creative Workshop online class from Jodi Ohl right now. It is called Fun with Faux Encaustics. We are doing 4 canvases (mine are 8 x 8) depicting the four seasons. The photos show how far along I am right now and I would say I am only about 1/2 way through ~ just layering to make an interesting textural background. I will post more photos when I finish them.
Here are my cacti cuttings showing new growth every day.
