My Latest Art Work

"Desert Dweller" 

  This assemblage is composed of two tiny hummingbird nests I found in our back yard.  One of them was half started, so I put them one on top of the other.  The "eggs" are beads-the approximate size of real hummingbird eggs.  The red bits are real coral.  The dried rose buds are from a bush in our back yard.   I used twigs from a palm as "antlers".  Placing them near the nest made me think of Georgia O'Keeffe's cow skulls.
  The background is acrylic with pastels.  (I LOVE Panpastels.)
  I'm really pleased with this.

Gentleman Canine

 Today's bit of art comes from a piece of cardboard I got in the mail.  I can't even remember what came in it-I just loved the paper and tape itself.
  I'm not sure this piece is finished, so I'm letting it rest tonight.  I like the splotches of paint and the hand writing peeking through.
  The "orb" below the dog's eye is not on the image itself.  I don't know what to think of that.
