Art for Spring - on an old child's ironing board!

Well, I'm ready for Spring! And it is 7o degrees here today - so why not a springy painting? This is painted with Golden acrylic paints and collaged with scrapbook paper and then sealed. It was the cutest little kid's ironing board but it begged to be painted on. Here are some pics, with close-ups - thanks for looking!

Music in the Air

I did this painting for a show called The Art of Jazz which is happening right now at the Goggleworks in Reading, PA. It was a lot of fun to do since there is collage as well as silver leaf and acrylic paint happening here. The collaged paper in her hair is sheet music - some of which is called Caravan by Duke Ellington. It's 24x24 on wraparound canvas - i'm very happy with it and it was a fun experience to paint! Thanks for looking!

(sorry for the low quality photo - this looks way better in person!)

(also sorry for the double post - some days i think i'm just going a little bit crazy!)
