So my hubby and I were at the cabin this weekend along with his sister, her hubby and their 3 kids. Even with all the chaos I still had a little time to work on the miniature store/studio. It was a lot of sanding to get the porch posts to fit. (Actually they still aren't right.) And a lot of sanding on other stuff so it looks like not much was done. I did, however, get the top story back wall painted and glued in as well as the top stair rail.
These are 5" X 7" stencil collages that I did for each of the kids and they hang directly above each of their beds.
This is a collage I did to hang over my desk at the cabin. It is based on a class I took from Anna Dobrowski (not sure if it's spelled right.) I call it "My Artistic Muse" and she is supposed to watch over me and give me inspiration in time of artists block. ( I'm doing this as a new class next year.)
This is a painting that came with the cabin and they left it because the frame is extra deep so that it covers the old wood stove flue that sticks out of the wall. It originally had a painting of some deer that were lovingly hand painted by someone but alas they were not all that well done. I took out the old canvas and just painted right over it with some acrylic paints using the stencils I brought to make the kids artwork.
This is one I did last week at home and it was an idea I had for the stencil collage technique. Instead of using color to stencil over color I painted the background with color but I stenciled the foreground all in white. I think it came out really great and this might become a class too. (Be sure and let me know what you think.)
