I've been working on My "Mini Sailor's Valentines" as a low cost project/class at my site. I'll put a link here when I get it posted. I finally found a use for the coral hearts that I collected last May in Hawaii. But any kind of heart, stone, polymer, other clay, could also be used.
This is a shell collage that I did over a picture frame for my daughter for Christmas. I like the brown palette that I used. (Click on the picture for a larger image)
I'm getting ready to go to Hawaii again next week: this time I'm teaching at a gourd festival on the big island. There is lots to do to get ready!
New Years Thoughts:
I have been practicing being more "in the moment", something that is talked about a lot but I had never quite gotten the concept of. I read Eckhart Tolle's A New World and it finally makes sense! This is the best thing I have ever started doing for myself, for my art. I wish you blessings of creativity for this coming year.
