Mixed-Media Paintings are Done

I have completed the mixed-media paintings that I've shown bits of progress of along the way. There are six pieces in this group. The first four pieces shown below will be going on a trip in late May to the BECA Gallery in New Orleans. They will be part of an upcoming exhibition called 12x12x122. The exhibit will start in early June and end in July. If you are interested in obtaining one of the first four paintings, please contact the BECA gallery at becagallery@gmail.com. The last two canvases will be placed into my etsy shop in a few days. I need to get some better photos of these as the day here was gloomy and rainy. I really need to pull out the photo tent.

Remember my Rusty Tiles quilt I showed a couple of posts ago? Well I got it all done. Here it is hanging on my bathroom wall. It's difficult to get a straight on photo of the quilt hanging in the bathroom because of the dimensions of the room.


But I figured out a great way to photograph the quilt was to point the camera at the mirror on the opposite wall. You can even see the mixed-media canvas I had made for this room a few weeks back.


Ooooo, and lookie here! New life just bursting out of the soil. Okay, that was a little dramatic huh? Anyway, I've planted some flower seeds in these little seedling starting containers and I was so excited today when I found some of the seeds had germinated.

  2. Hi Terri,
    First, i really enjoyed your online chat yesterday and learned a lot from it!
    When I first saw the photo right above this, I thought I was looking at some incredible iced cupcakes coming out of the oven! Shows you where my mind is!
    Your canvases are beautiful and should look wonderful on display in the gallery. And the wall hanging is perfect in the bathroom! Very pretty!

  7. Looks like a couple of bleached blondes showed up to admire the garden! Do they even call blondes "bleached blondes" anymore? Very cool!

    Both wallhangings look super in your bathroom too.

  8. Your mixed media pieces are lovely - the expression on the women's faces is so serene! I too thought the tiny seedlings were chocolate cupcakes!

    Love, Violette
