Just a few

Here are a few things I'm working on. The roof on this piece is covered with paper that I bought at Studio Supply in Chapel Hill. They have some great papers and I have been looking for some reason to use some of those nice patterns. I have wanted to do something a little different with the roofs of these barns, and I like the way this paper turned out. It adds an unexpected element I think. I have a feeling the mixed media thing will be going on for awhile, I have collected a lot of stuff. I also like the birdseed in the glass tube. This one is sort of a take on Magrite's Ceci N'est Pas Une Pipe. Ce n'est pas un nichoir (this is not a birdhouse).
Better photos of the image transfers I did
I had a really productive day today even though I didn't get started until noon. This cold has me moving slowly, lots of hot tea this morning to settle the coughing and sniffling. Also having a little Wesley withdrawal. But I was feeling it today, made two new barns that will get some of the hardware from my last post. I am trying to crank out as much work as I can before the CDC and the studio tour. I still have no idea what to expect, so I'm just going to make work every day and hope for the best.....

what do you use to get the paper to stay on the roof?
I really like how it looks.
Everything seems to be moving a long well and you still have a few weeks to go!

I just used Elmer's school glue, what would I do without it?! Since kindergarten :) then I just put an acrylic finish on top to seal it.

the transfers are perfect for your forms and finishes... you won't be hanging on to those too long.

Ce n'est pas un commentaire, it's just typing on a screen at my house. i think the patterned roof is a great addition. it's amazing how much these barns have evolved in such a short span of time... great stuff
