A bit of art

Now that I'm back to school, planning takes up most of my time. I still try to make some time for art though (and I have some projects coming up later this fall).

This one is brand new. It has a painted background with paper layers but the tag on top is encaustic.

The collage at the top of the post is watercolour mounted on canvas. It was originally part of a book spread, but the person who it was for dropped out of the RR, so I added a few details and then mounted it on a black canvas.

Have a great new school year.

I didn't do much blog reading while traveling, so now I have the fun of catching up with your posts. Fun pieces; I especially like the encaustic tag.
