bloom where you are planted

Thursday, May 27, 2010

My husband was in Boston on a business trip for a few days this week ... I hate it when he is away (I don't sleep well when he isn't around) but I do like to take advantage of the extra time that I get to spend with my girls and my art. I managed to start working on four boards for collages ... I finished one collage last night which I called "bloom where you are planted".  


I was originally going to do something different with the flowers but I remembered that I purchased a bunch of vintage pop bottle caps the other week and I ended up re-working the flowers so that I could add the bottle caps. I'm pretty happy with the way that the collage worked out. 

I have completed the backgrounds on the other three boards ... I'll just have to wait to find a little more time to continue painting.


  1. Oh My goodness--I love this!!!

  2. Thanks Lorrie for stopping by my blog! I took a look at yours and loved it(so I added it to my links-hope you don't mind). I really really really love this mixed media work. I have on similar in the works but am having trouble pulling it together. The bottle caps were perfect-See you in class!

  3. Hi Jen ... I just added your blog to my list of links too!

  4. I love this piece! It is gorgeous. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I have to say the Artistic Mother projects are going to be taking a back seat to "flying lessons" for me, too. But I, too, have a journal all ready for "flying lessons", thanks to the Artistic Mother book (no poetry for my poetry journal =)
