I am participating in Seth's buried treasure dig, where we re-post from our archives, what we find interesting, or are particularly proud of.
I have to post it sorta early...I don't know how to delay the post
and I won't be able to post it tomorrow and be on time for the activity...so hope I am not stepping out of line...but here I am..now.
If you are here, most likely you came from Seth's blog http://thealteredpage.blogspot.com/
if you are checking in because you list me...then GO check out Seth...don't stop with this post go digging all the way back to the beginning of his blog..he is most interesting.
A lot of us are new to the blog thing...but many of you are veterans..I am not too long here however, I seem to have a fair amount of posts.
I tend to only go but so far into a blog that I am visiting.
Looking mostly at the current listings and rarely going all the way through them
NOT because I am not interested in the work...but because I have only but so much time I can spend at the computer and still have myself, a productive day.
The treasure hunt will give us a little glimpse into the distant past.
I am re-posting my first post.
This picture is kinda special in that it is the first canvas piece I had done in many years. I had been focusing primarily in the glass medium...ANYthing working with glass.
I was sorta intimidated to even post the piece, not being very sure about the quality of the work after so many years.
I began working in charcoal/watercolors/and oils.
Since this post I have lightened up a lot...and I am not so shy about posting work.
This collage is worked on canvas. The background is blended inks. The added elements of the rocks and fish are on watercolor paper/watercolor and ink. Then i added a fun element for movement ..the fiber yarn.
The subject is the Walleye.
This is a vibrant piece and I haven't had a lot of success in photographing it. The original post shows a washed out version and this isn't a whole lot better...but, it IS better than the original post.
Thank you for dropping in.
I hope you look through my blog, and see I am getting better explaining what I have done with the work I post, trying especially to explain the processes I work with the glass, as many of y'all don't work in glass.
I will be cruising by to check out what you re-posted.
Thank you Seth for hosting this event!
