Finishing touches on two pieces started a while back ..... using some color and medium I have never tried together, in this manner anyway. ..... but I like the vibrant colors of the stick colors I used. A friend calls it waking the color up and it does seem to wake the picture up. These are so different from what I used to do, but I will continue to experiment .... as it so much fun and spontaneous. The TREE OF LIFE ..... a tree with scripture leaves.... or clumps which are above the empty tomb.... that is what came out of a bunch of collaged paper and fingerprint texture ..... not sure about this one, but here it is anyway. It was done on a piece of wood and these are the prints of the finished work..... the little dress is tissue paper molded and dried and enhanced with color. Just trying different stuff .... but fun!! Enjoy!! OH!! The last picture is of my sweetheart when he was a fighter pilot in Viet Nam in 1967...... cute little bugar!
