Wings Show at Smithville

Topics: angels, christmas, juried shows

I had two pieces accepted into the juried "Wings" show at Smithville Mansion in Easthampton, NJ. The one piece attached to this blog is what I call a "green" piece. With the exception of the glass, it's recycled materials. The back is the drop out of a mat I cut for a watercolor. I sprayed that with some gold paint. The "clouds" are torn up, used dryer sheets. The wire was from a craft project gone bad, and the angel is old paintings that I needed to get out of my studio. The frame was from something else, whitewashed and glittered up with some rub and buff. The hook and eyes and wire for the back were scavenged from an old painting. I've not worked with a collage before, but this is going to be my Christmas card.

Also, Say a Little Prayer for you got in. I'll be anxious to see the work at the upcoming reception.

Working now on some snow scenes for the art show at the Dickens festival in Medford, NJ and the Wildlife Show to be held at the Center for the Arts of Southern NJ.
