I've been in a great art group for many years and this past weekend was our annual retreat. Our destination was a cabin five hours away in the mountains of East Tennessee.
Here's a shot of our spacious workroom. A huge porch is just beyond the windows and the colors of fall were still brilliant.
One of our mixed media projects was metal collage and I decided to do a holiday piece. I hope it looks like a poinsettia because that was what I was shooting for. The idea came from a small calendar page. The board is 18" square and should be a good piece to go on my mantel. I'm still trying to figure out if it's finished! What about that empty space; should I leave it alone or add something?
Here's a few closeups:
It's back to reality now as I'm trying to unpack and get my room back in order. The wait for the next annual fall retreat has begun.
