Sing Sweetly

This little piece with the image of a bird, was created using a sand dollar handpicked from the rugged shores of Newfoundland. Each sand dollar is hardened before I begin the painting/collage process. Two coats of varnish is then applied to protect the artwork as well as to harden it further. Painting, stamping, pieces of vintage newspaper from 1937, images and text were used in the creation of this piece.

It's snowing hard outside as I sit inside cozy and snug. I'm thinking of heading outside to my studio to do a little work. There's nothing better than squirreling myself away in my studio and making art on a day like this.
