New Year thoughts
Today is a wonderful day to plan some goals for the next 364 days to come.
I am excited about my upcoming show in April at the Lynchburg Art Club, and have a few weeks to make some new pieces for that.
I want to pursue some opportunities to show my works outside of my immediate area.
I plan to enter more shows at the regional and national levels this year.
Still considering a website, but want to be a more active blogger.
I recently made some small 10"x10" works of the details in butterfly wings. I draw my rendition of the segment I want to portray onto freezer paper, then cut it up to make pattern pieces. I used fusible applique to make these, and mounted them with velcro onto 1.5" deep cradled board that I paint black. I like the presentation, the piece stands out a bit from the wall and has more of a presence. For smaller pieces, I think framing or mounting helps the viewer perceive them as fine art.
