Oh So Fine on Fine Art America

My latest venture is becoming a member of Fine Art America.

Besides being a great gallery to show your work, it is also a great on-demand marketplace.  One can by a print, a note card, a tote bag, a cell-phone case, even a quilt and shower curtain with great images on them. Love the idea that my eclectic collages might be gracing someone's shower.  It's a hoot.  

I actually had fun describing my work.  And in my key-words you'll always find "vintage, retro funky, pop art, surrealism, altered.  and fun".

Check out my profile page here!  Join the fun with you work too.

In the Gift Shop...

I'm a happy Art Girl.  My Waynesboro collages are on display in the gift shop-docent room for the month of November at the gallery I belong to - Shenandoah Valley Art Center -SVAC .  I  really like seeing the collages at this size, 16x20.  The details pop.  Go big and take one home!  If not, got some 8x10 prints and note cards of them on offer too.

My Art Buddy Deb Booth went with me to get things on the walls.  We had a bit of a search for a hammer & nails, and  Mz Deb managed the tall ladder for the piece hung from up high, but actually, all went smoothly.  We began the day with our usual weekly breakfast at Weasie's Kitchen and yes, there is definitely a Weasie's Kitchen collage in the Waynesboro series.

If you're in town, there is an opening this Saturday of lovely paintings by Joy E Tartter in the main gallery.  Check out Joy and the gallery, with me in the docent room here.

At the Gift Shop - Art Buddies

I featured Deb many a time here, but now she is exploring a new medium - Quilling!  Elements and embellishments made from curled paper to form and enhance images. The 3-dimensional enhancement really catches your eye.   It's just cool. Here are three from her Tiny Dancer series   Check it out  at and Deb Booth on Facebook.  And soon, you'll be able to find them at CvilleArts, a great gallery right on the downtown walking mall in Charlottesville, VA.

Halloween Ooky Pookiy & Day of the Dead

I have an affinity to these two holidays and there was a time that I went all out.  These days noodling around with collage is how I celebrate.  I had planned to do a series of such collages, but Life had other things I needed to attend to, so just these two got to 'come to life.'  A special nod to Mischief Circus for some of the Halloween images.  Boo.
