Evidence of our day in the studio...



My friend Debbie came over as scheduled on Friday, and we spent the morning going over her entry into the first Washington County Arts Tour. As anyone who has ever entered a juried art show knows, the process of presenting oneself on paper for an arts show is grueling, but worth it if you can get in and get some exposure. In the afternoon, we experimented with a few background techniques from Claudine Hellmuth's books, and then finished one collage on the background. The techniques were easy, and yielded very textural and interesting results. Debbie's is the wonderful green one with "Gladys," whom I affectionately refer to as my adopted ancestor. It's an image that Scott bought for me at an antique store or auction, one of his many finds for my art!

I love Gladys too so much that I pretend she's my ancestor too - that way we're related.
