Another big project this week!  My first try at mixed-media/collage, especially on such a large scale, this one is 2′ x 3′

Here is a peek at my process (please forgive the photography, the size and lighting I had to work with were less than ideal):

Excerpt from a Love Letter- final

I did this piece on commission for a Valentine’s gift. The writing is an excerpt from one of the couple’s love letters. It says “It is incredibly beautiful when having you in my life catches me off guard and overwhelms me, throws images of our life together to the forefront and helps me remember just how lucky I am.  I <3 You.”  Awwwww!
