Dancing Girls

One of my latest creations. I actually have about 10 or so that are done and hanging on walls, that need to be photographed so I can upload them to the blog and Flickr. I feel so behind, but at the same time I have plenty of material to post about.

Anyway Dancing Girls is an 8x24 mixed media on canvas, with images provided by the lovely Itkupilli. One of these days, I'll have to use someone else's pictures, but right now I can't get enough of her stuff.

This one was a challenge, as I'm not used to this size canvas, nor did I have a lot of supplies in the right colors. As you can see, I had to seriously improvise with the glass rocks at the top and bottom of the canvas. I didn't have anything else that would look good there. However, that isn't necessarily a bad thing, because it forces me to stretch my creative boundaries, which is something I need to do on a frequent basis.

In other news I finally finished the purple disaster which turned out not to be that purple. Feeew! It didn't come out that great, but I think it's okay. It just needs a layer of string gel and it will be ready for photographing. In fact I think I'll post it next just to see what other people think of it. Maybe I'm crazy, but it is one of my least favorites right now.

Alright I'm off to have dinner and read me some Somerset magazine. Have a good night everyone!
