Mixed Media Portrait on canvas

First Mixed Media Portrait using Heather Murray class techniques

Took Heather Murray's Mixed Media Portrait Class or at www.TroddenPath.ning. and here is the result of my first try. These are somewhat similar to what I have done in the past with mixed media collage and watercolors on vintage portraits.

5 Year Anniversary!

I just realized that yesterday marked the 5 year Anniversary of my Blog~ A huge accomplishment for me!  I noticed in reviewing my blog that over the years, I have had many ups and downs but the thing that got me through (besides my loving hubby, Joe) is ART.  It is so much a part of my life and what this blog is about.  I have made happy art and sad art, traditional, collage, and digital art.   And, while I love that other people like what I do and of course that is why I post it for all the world to see--it is not why I make art.  
I MAKE ART, BECAUSE I CANNOT HELP MYSELF.
I am just feeling so proud that I have kept up with my little art blog, sharing some of my life and all of my Art with the world. Thank everyone who has visited or commented. Your support means so much to me.
