The next step - marching across

Here is the next step. And here is a link to Bea's blog, Dog in the Hole Studio which explains that we are supposed to add rectangular pieces marching across. And since i didn't have a clear third color, I added a red line.  Now as I look at all this, I think the whole effect is like an abstract clothes line on a windy day with the papers falling off.    This is a digital work, by the way, and I adjusted the layers to give the effect of those yellow rectangles being behind and in front of the line and the varying sizes.  I really love this piece, but I had no end idea in mind as I was doing it.

Bea's Abstract Art Project

I'm following along with Bea at Dog in the Hole Studio in her Abstract Art project.  Here we have unity, rhythm, contrast and repetition.

Jaws redux?

Here is my entry for Collage Obsession Challenge #13, which was a fun, collaborative effort with my husband who is home sick today.

My first digital collage

I am taking a collage class with Kathryn Antyr at True North Arts.  The first part of the class is about making digital collages.  I have been playing with images of angels my friend Lizzi took at a cemetery near her and shared with me.  I'm hoping to do a series on angels.

Valentine's Day

I made this Love Banner for my sister's Valentine's Birthday

And I also made her a canvas and burlap pillow with a picture of her when she was a little girl. :-)
