Life has been so incredibly crazy for me lately so much so that I haven't been able to create. I did manage to get 2 little pieces finished though. These are both 5 x 5 canvases and both mixed media pieces. The blue one is called "Dream Big" and features a locket that opens and closes. I think it's funny that it's called Dream Big and it's really small! The next one is called "Bloom". I really like this one because I used a bunch of different techniques on it. Including using modeling paste under the paint and over painting it but really blending the paints. It has a lot of texture and also has some fiber on it as well. Make sure to view the other photos below to see the details. Both pieces are listed on Etsy!
I've been so MIA from my blog so far this year but as I've said it's been crazy. I just got back from an unexpected trip to Cape Cod with my daughter Lorelei. One of my best friend's mothers passed away last week from cancer and she needed someone to look after her kids so she could go to the funeral in Alabama. I was able to help and boy was that tiring! Two 2 year olds and a 4.5 year old for a week. Insane. The week before that another close friend's mother died of cancer as well in Germany. Then I found out my sweet 88 year old Nana fell while on vacation in Costa Rica and had a brain hemorrhage and was on life support. She is no longer on life support but is still in a coma and seems to be improving. Prayers for her would be greatly appreciated. She can't be moved until she's stabilized so she's staying in Costa Rica. My mom flew out yesterday to be with her for 10 days. It's been a traumatic month for people around me and my family as well.
One bit of good news is that my brother and his beautiful, new wife Petrie are finally reunited and she's here in the states and no longer in Holland. I can now show your photos from their amazing wedding!! Enjoy!
