Hello everyone! I am so flattered; a peice of my work has been accepted at 33 Contempo Gallery in Chicago. The show is called Copyright?. It will open this month.
Here are a couple of other things I have been up to. This image is The Petulant Magdalene, by El Greco. I bought it in Sitges, Spain last summer. I researched it and found it was in the public domain and then began beading and tiling around it. It is a little over 11" tall.
A view of the side, with handmade polymer clay tiles. Tapestry tile inside the niche space.
A work in progress...this little shrine has a little crown that I purchased at a flea market in France. I an not sure how old it is; you can get really old things over there. Red mirrored tile and polymer clay shutters added to the foam and wood substrate; then a little piece of translucent glass that will house a votive candle. There are lots of little flowers, beads and upholstery tacks embelishing the glass. I still need to grout it and finish the inside of the niche space. It is...10" tall, approximately.
Okay, remember per my last blog entry, I am teaching a polymer clay class in Delano, MN,Feb 16. Follow the link (scroll down) for more information.
