I've been on Spring Break the last few days (yeah, yeah, I know, teachers have it soooooo easy), and I managed to carve out a little time to complete some art projects. That said, I'm back to work tomorrow, so this may be my last post for awhile. Below are some pics from "Intertwined," yet another nicho in my seemingly endless series. (Actually, after this one, I only have ONE yet to complete--then the nichos are finished...for now.) By the way, the approximate dimensions of this piece are 6" X 8".
This little assemblage--again, I used an Altoid tin as the "nicho"--was created using found objects, two vintage photos, and a picture from National Geographic (the greenish background in the photo below) that was treated with Citrasolv to give it that wavy appearance.
I thought about naming this piece "Mama's Eyes" for obvious reasons--and I may still do so.
The shot below shows the old cheese grater I used to frame the piece, as well as the texture I achieved around the edges and top of the base.
The (sometimes mad) ramblings of a mixed media artist.
