My Hand at Collage Painting

Santo I, Santos Series Mixed Media Collage Painting on Linen 5"x7"
I have started several paintings of saint statues. I am very fascinated by rituals and all the items that accompany the ceremonies. This painting was turning out to look too dark and so I rubbed some of the painting off of it. I really like the look and when I would return to finish it, it just felt like that was the way it was destined to be.

Well, when Sarah Capshaw came to do her demo for the Edmond Art Association, she took out a lot of the mystery of collage painting. She made it appear very meditative, which at this time, is just what I needed.
A few days after the demo, I came across the Saint painting and knew exactly what to do with it. I took a El Nacional and just found words that connected with me with no real direction in mind.
I am very happy with it and I think I will create more of them. The excercise was very helpful and even felt so very self endulgent.
Below is a collage painting that I purchased from Sarah. I absolutely love the colors.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
