With Artfest less than a month away, I am deep into
preparations for two days of workshops and Friday
night's vendor show.
Vendor night is definitely one of my favorite events,
as it offers the chance for participants to collect
unique, one-of-a-kind treasures from their favorite
artists. I am honored to have a table this year, and
will be offering some new original collaged art,
nature assemblages, copies of both of my poetry books,
nature stencils and other delights.
Over the last week, I have been working to prepare
the backgrounds of several muslin canvases that
will eventually become the foundation for my original
artworks. Using distressing techniques that mimic
patina metals, weathered wood, and rust, these
methods always give the most amazing results.
They are, in fact, techniques that I am excited to
be sharing in my painting workshops this year.
Take a look at the backgrounds I have created so far.
