Hello everyone! My internet has been down for the last few weeks, so I wasn't able to update the site. Now it is working even faster and better, so I am pretty excited about that.
I have been working on a few thing recently. The first is a work I am titling, "I'd Like to be a Victorian Vixen." I still have a good amount of work to do on my collaged image, including the lace detailing of the dress and the small cameo, as well as the jewelery in the hair. I can't decide whether or not to create the lace by piecing together paper doily edges, or just going out and buying a real piece of lace to attach.

I would also like to make a few birthday wishes that I missed writing about while the internet was down. At the end of March were three important b-day's... so Happy Birthday to Anna, Olivia and Ewan McGregor! Hope you all had a good one. I made a collage for Anna, called Fox in a Scarf. I hope you like it! And don't think I forgot about you Olivia, I have something special for you too. :)
For Fox in a Scarf, I got to use my favorite red again. I made two preliminary sketches, but in the end decided choosing the sketch on the left, because the one on the right looked a little cranky. In the end I placed the picture in a 8x10 inch frame which was matted down for the 5x7 inch image.
