Vegas Projects






So here are pics showing 2 of the the 3 class projects I made. I took Stephanie Lee's Selective Seeing, and it was fabulous. Of course I could watch her work all day long, so inspiring. We took large format, high contrasting black and white copies, and then selectively painted out or painted in or just painted what we saw. I loved the four I did using older family photos.
The second project was Thomas Ashman 's Copper and glass mini journal. This was hard work!!! Thankfully Thomas gave us chocolate to calm us down when we got frustrated. I ate all of my chocolate!!!
The third class I took was supposed to be with Judy Wise, but she could not make it. Sad! I love her journal work. I did however get to use one of her Beatles "LOVE" Cirque Du Soleil tickets, though. That was awesome~So I did not post my journal work, as there were no new techniques done during the class. Still had fun though!

I missed seeing you Carrie and I'm so glad you got to see "Love". I've also taken Stephanie's Selective Seeing class and made an awesome cabinet door with my mother's picture on it. Mom was 16 in the photo and I just love what I made and I love your pieces too. This was a favorite class of all time.

I hope we meet another time. BTW my eye is fully recovered now. It was just unfortunate timing and very frightening. xo
