Circles, Squares and Sadness

mixed media 8x8 series 4 circles and squares

I’ve been working on the last three 8 x 8 pieces in the mixed media collage series.  This is one of them, still in process.  I’ve had some assistance from another eye which I was happy to have but with mixed emotions.  A good friend, another artist, lost her husband to that dreaded C word.  They are from here and rent in our town in the summer but their home is Florida. 

I should say their retirement home is Florida; home is here in our Tri-Cities area.  And because this is home this is where the service was and burial will be.  She needed a place to stay while making all of the arrangements and I was happy to have room to have her here. 

Both sad times and good times, sad – no need to explain.  Good – because she and my dear friend Annie Morgan are two of the most creative artists I know so having her here to kick around ideas helped me and gave her a little break from thinking about her loss.

She doesn’t have an internet presence but she’s having an exhibit here this summer at C2C Gallery.  When Cyndi (C2C owner) posts them I’ll put a link here.  Annie has been dealing with some things too so her blog and website are not up to date; however, you can get an idea of what I’m talking about if you go here.

Meanwhile, here are the other two of the three new 8x8 pieces in process

I also fooled around with a transfer, acrylic paint on a piece of plastic transferred to a boring grey collage….

More on that when I get back to it; after I finish the other three.
