Magic Carpet Ride


So this is the piece I was talking about last night. It was such a troublemaker in the beginning, but I love it now. I think it's the sixties look to it. Plus, the colors are my favorites, and it just looks so fun.

My very favorite bits are the candy looking necklace at the top, and the bits of fringe on the door. The door by the way is a picture I took in San Francisco. I altered the colors in Photoshop, to be more exciting, because the original brown just wouldn't cut it for me. The canvas is 11x14. I really seem to like that size. So much so , that I just received my shipment of 10 more today.

When ever I get my new shipments, I always feel a little overwhelmed looking, at all those blank canvases and thinking, holy cow, now I have to fill all those! Then before I know it, they are all used up, and I'm ordering more.

Oh yeah, I finally sent my Alice piece off to Somerset today, so I guess I find out in March if it made the magazine or not. That would be so cool if it does!

Have a great weekend everyone, I'm off to the annual Artists Open Studios tour tomorrow. I was too late to sign up this year, but hopefully next year I'll get in.

  2. I am so ashamed about how behind on blog visiting I've gotten, but on the flip side what a visual feast it is to come and visit and see so many wonderful pieces and posts since my last visit. Congratulations on your show - what a feat that is! I've only been in two alumni exhibitions and never had work in any other show so I am very impressed and excited for you and your work looks amazing on that wall! And, congratulations on sending work into Somerset. I'm sure you'll get in!

    Your work just amazes me. every piece is filled with a million little pieces of perfection and I am so totally amazed and fascinated by how you find all of those pieces and work them in so beautifully. Each little section of each piece is full of surprise and whimsy and color explosions. All I can say is you wow me woman!
