I finished my “pink star” collage…I think it turned out so cute!

wish upon a pink star

The only thing I wish I had done better is the outline around the lady. First I did it in marker and it was terrible! So I went over it with a charcoal pencil, which helped.

I was debating about the arms…I couldn’t figure out a way to add them that would look good. I decided to look at Ms. Hellmuth’s book (Collage Discovery Workshop: Beyond the Unexpected), which was my inspiration for this piece, to see how she did hers, and a lot of her collages feature armless folks. So I figured if that’s good enough for her, then it’s good enough for me too!

I’ve been working on some mini collages to make into soldered glass pendants.

Here are the collages, so far…

The one at below left is Star of Known Luminosity – this one is done. The next one clockwise is The Sea. And the last does not have a name yet; it’s a photo of Marilyn Monroe, very early in her career (a photo taken for The Asphalt Jungle). I’m using a line from a Sylvia Plath poem for her. She’s my favorite!

I apologize for the not-so-great photo…it was the best I could do at the time!

One of my annual artistic goals is to buy a piece of artwork by another artist. Artwork in this case would be something that I can hang on the wall, since I don’t really have anywhere else to put it.

Anyway, in December I bought my first piece of artwork, this lovely print called “Two of a Kind”by Emily Winfield Martin…

I just adore Miss Martin’s work. There is something intriguing and endearing about her whimsically odd fairytale figures. I particularly love this piece; it is very sweet and intriguing – I would love to know the story of these two figures. I love the pale hair of both, and how the girl’s eyes are red like the bunny’s, but it looks perfectly natural instead of weird. And the little star in her hair is a perfect touch.

Miss Martin has an Etsy shop – The Black Apple. If you like my lovely print be sure to check out the rest of her work!
