Today I was lucky to be able to stay home all day and make art, the only time I left the house was to go to Marianne's to make more art!
Last week I bought a bunch of small chunky 4 x 4 inch gallery wrapped canvases. I have had an idea I wanted to try and that was to use them backwards, so I would have the hole in the center to work with.
I bought some modeling paste and used a pallet knife to cover the back of each one and fill in the gaps and staples. I let this dry and then took 3 of them to Marianne's to work on.
These are not finished yet...but my idea is turning out. I will show the finished pieces in another blog post.
This morning I took 4 of my encaustic pieces and turned them into an assemblage. I added a Buddha Head by screwing the base into the background with an L bracket, the two dolls are glued as well as the blocks of wood are glued on. I had made the background piece after the 3 smaller pieces and didn't put any wax in those 3 spots, so the glue would stick. This piece is named "Tattoo" because of the Henna designs on the purple pieces.
