First of all...let me say...I am having so much fun doing these altered pieces...the 3-D effect of them just makes me so happy!! I love altering with my raw art and words! FUN!..FUN!...FUN!!
This piece is going off to a show in Fort Collins, Colorado....Called: The Muse Unleashed Show..
Everyone knows how much I love an art show...a challenge...So I unleashed my Muse and this is what she helped me to create! It is a difficult piece to photograph (one because you all know I am not so great at it!! and secondly, because I used Pearl Ex interference on it) This piece is going to THE CREATIVE UNDERGROUND....they have a great site for art supplies! Visit often and support the small artful shops!
This is a custom clock made for a First Grade School Teacher! What a kool gift!! LOL...I make these clocks out of a brown paper box...completely painted and customized for the client...It is a working clock that runs on a AA battery!! Thus the name...KOOL KLOX in a BOX!! I have been making these clocks since 1999 and have made well over 700 of them!! Looking for something unique to give as a gift for a baby...a wedding...a teacher...a friend...Everyone can use a very funky clock customized especially for them!! Contact me via my E mail on my profile page, I would be happy to work with you to come up with JUST THE RIGHT clock for your occasion!
I found this cobalt blue glass hand in a store and it just called for me to purchase it...So purchase I did...Once I came home I knew something more had to be done with it...My daughter's birthday is tomorrow...and as I was reflecting on her birth...her life...my life (and the fact that I have a 35 year old daughter...when in actuality I am only 40 myself...LOL...(really 56 but as I told my friend just the other day, I often feel 16...25...37!! good thing there are not a lot of mirrors around when I feel that way)...but back to the cobalt blue hand....and the birthday!! Anyhow, I recalled that my daughter had made me a tape of music and one of the songs reminded her of me...now, I don't remember who sang the song, but the refrain was: "listen here young lady...all I want is for you to be happy"...and so I altered the hand to reflect my wishes for her on her birth day! I want for her to be happy....to know that she is loved...to be free in who she is...to trust herself and her hearts messages...to dream...to fly....These are my wishes for my child...my grown woman daughter (with a child of her own) these are the wishes that my heart holds for her....All I want is for her to be happy!! Happy Birthday dear daughter of mine....Happy Birth Day!
Clocks...We all use them..we all have them...chances are there are several around your house! There is a need to know the time!! So why not have FUN with them...I decided that I needed to work on some clocks that had a sense of whimsy and fun, and yet still let me know what time it was!! So...here they are!
I am so honored and HAPPY to share that these clocks will be in Somerset Home this August. You will be able to see how to make them within the pages of the publication along with other fabulous art from other fabulous artists. Keep it in mind to purchase...SUPPORT YOUR HANDMADE ART!! and learn a new technique!! BE INSPIRED!...
