I realize I am definitely in a ‘bright’ period. The brighter the better! Must be the dark VT winters…but I think this period started in the summer: last summer, when I made these 5 x 7 canvases. The acrylic painted and stamped paper pieces on each were made even longer ago, so I guess my bright period has far-reaching roots. Wanted to do something with texture, so the butterfly has beads gel, the tulip has fiber gel, and the bird has a burlap nest. The main images are all home-made stencils and molding paste.
