New Painting/Collage for Taos Selects

I have been working hard. I finally finished the second collage for the Taos selects Fall Arts show. I still have to be selected by the judges, so I am not in the show yet. This piece is another 18"x 18", venetian plaster, Oil paint, India ink, rice paper, tea and rust stained paper, ink, graphite, thread, colored pencil, charcoal, cold wax on cradle board. I think the title will be "Waiting #2"as the first one is "Waiting", (thank you Barbara for the title suggestion!), the title is subject to change as I live with these pieces. I made them to be hung together and took a quick shot of them side by side, it is a bit blurry and not a great shot as they would not fit into my light cube, but you get the idea.
As usual the photo is never as good as the actual painting, of course if you think about it, it would be sad if the photo was better :-). I took many detail shots. If you click on the photo it will enlarge and if you then click again it will enlarge further, that is the only way to get a proper look at my work.
I always love to hear what you think. XOXO
P.S. This piece will be tumbled.

America Martin

 Painting by America Martin.
It has been a while since I posted, I have been busy working on the second raven painting for the show (I will have something to show by next weekend). Last Saturday I went to a show for my friend America Martin. I took my camera, but completely forgot to take photos, darn! I met America a few years ago at her first show in Taos, I love her work, but more than that I was totally taken with her, I have only met a few people in my life that I can say are really living from their heart. She is beautiful inside and out. She has a spirit of generosity and love that just makes her glow. I adore her. If you have never heard of her, go to her blog and check her out. Have a Happy Weekend. XOXO
