Not just another pretty face...
Not just another pretty face?
I realize a lot of people really appreciate my work, but they just aren't into faces. I get it.
So, in a flash of inspiration, I took to my library of books - tile, art nouveau decor, elements of design, stained glass, architectural elements, turn-of-the-century architecture... to find a couple of images that would spark my imagination.
Results? Three new pieces.
Each 24x24" on canvas - Floral [Art Nouveau], Fleur de Lis [Tile] and Stained Glass.
Still made entirely of junk mail.
I thought these would be easier to make than a portrait...and I WAS WRONG. Just as hard.
I hope these new images will appeal to a broader base than just faces... but they're still pretty!
