It's Hip to be Square

It's been a busy time since I last posted.  Samy graduated.   Then it was Father's Day...

and end of year celebrations.

Last week, the Charleston tragedy happened.  I had a canvas sitting around with bits and pieces of collage, and it turned into this meditation on despair and hope. I used my Doors & Windows stencil for the windows to memorialize Mother Emanuel.

The canvas was a square, and I enjoyed working on that shape so much, that I pulled out some other half finished squares, which I had previously collaged with gelli prints.  I used Traci Bautista's Deconstructed Floral Bouquet stencil and my Six Point Starry Night Stencil to embellish this piece, entitled "It's In the Bag."

My Teapot and Teacups Stencil, and Garden Flowers and Leaves Outlined Stencil played together for this celebration of friendship over tea.

For the Love of Tea: acrylic on 6 x 6" canvas board; $35 + $7 shipping and handling

I created this piece using Traci's Deconstructed Bouquet stencil, and my Flowers, Pomegranates and Leaves Stencil.
