The spirit of Christmas, Creative Children and me
Time passes so quickly and often I think that I have not done enough in terms of my art, I never seem to be on top of my blogging either so way too often a month passes before Ican make a post on my blog. My daughters on the other hand, Melissa and Selena have been blogging away and are always in my studio making one thing or another. I am thinking of changing the locks (joke).
Melissa is very much into fashion and art, her blog expresses this love clearly, have a quick look http://melsappelle.blogspot.com. She is the reason behind my shaved Mohawk look which she describes as "edgy" and that it makes me look the artist (no mention of my work)( joke).
Selena a calmer personality loves making and creating and for her age is really producing quality work, she is a whizz on the sewing machine. Her latest project was a large painting of a multicoloured Zebra. She is more methodical and thinks a lot about what she is doing before doing it. Her blogs can be found at http://www.artlovermusicloverlifelover.blogspot.com and http://www.how2maketoys.blogspot.com
As part of my exploring new ideas and techniques I began using Photo shop which Melissa introduced me to and the following piece of work is a result of this exploration using Selena's photo and incorporating it into a mixed media piece. I have also done another one but this time with a photo of Mel, it is not quite where I want it to be so I will show it when I am happy with it.
