Purple Passion

I created another 8 x 10 canvas while at the studio! This one sort of evolved as it went along.

I want to especially thank all the fab Gingersnappers who gave me tips on image transfer as it made a big difference on this canvas!! Whoohoo!

I started with the woman and then came across an old piece of newspaper in my stash. I isolated the "gossip" headline and then the triangles emerged.

This one is a little different but I like it!

If you are in or around the Boston area, you might want to check out Open Saturdays at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell. From 12 noon to 5 pm on the first Saturday of each month, many of the artists at Western Avenue open their studios to the public! July 3rd is just such a Saturday!

Among the over 200 artists in 143 studios, there are mixed media artists, photographers, painters, sculptors, jewelry makers, and fibre artists. It’s a phenomenal place with fabulous art!

Here's some of the photographs that I will have at Studio 328 at Western Avenue Studios along with some of my mixed media and papercrafting projects.

Check out local art .... always fresh!
