This week the challenge is to create art inspired by the theme of Sacred/Ancient/Symbolic art.
Well that is my thang…
And I hope you don’t think I am cheating, but
I needed to make my little painting important
and it takes as long to search, handsaw and sand and stain,
as it does to paint a portrait.
Today I finally figured out how to make my portrait
of Frida on canvas…ummm…
I rescued this chunk of wood some time ago
and today it’s purpose is known!
And that hinge,
I saved a few hinges and what-evers
from the dumpster a few years back.
And the old tacks.
I love the juxtaposition of old and fresh,
tarnished and gleaming.
As much as I love her, she is for sale HERE.
And I also made a wee gift today
that I will give away.
I’ll post it tomorrow.
He’s purple and has something to say.
G’nite for now,
and visit IA to participate in this week’s challenge.
(thanks for teaching me the hearts Geri for the heart tips)
