Snowy Day Hearts
Instead of venturing out to visit my art group, or having lunch with the Art League, I decided to stay inside today. It's eight degrees, snowy, and I am in semi-hibernation mode. My idea of fun when it's cold outside is to do indoors things, like ferreting out family history from New England, reading, watching movies, or working in the studio. It's not very hearty of me, especially when friends are posting on Facebook about skiing and sledding, but there you are.
These little pieces are 5x7 inches, collaged bits of old paper and stamps. Then I drew in the heart, and painted in the solid part with tinted gesso. I have hopes that someone will buy them for Valentines Day, but if not, they were a fun experiment. I have quite a few old stamps saved for projects like this, and wish I had more of the Love stamps.
There is a big snow storm predicted for tomorrow, so I may do more of the same.
