"Curious Anthology" is approximately 2' x 2'...comprised of 32 small shadowboxes that were individually cut out and put together by my very talented husband who is a woodworking genius! I then created small vignettes, or for a better word, stories...the graphic pieces are cut out multiple times so that they appear dimensional...a painstaking process that requires a lot of time and patience. The wood pieces are made from scraps and there are also a lot of vintage items and artifacts added to it. I am into anything that can be recycled!
I want to note a special "thank you" to Marsha Salyer Jorgensen from Tumble Fish Studios for so many of her wonderful graphic images that I used. She knows I am one of her biggest fans and am always thrilled to use her masterfully redone digital images whenever I can....thanks Marsha! If you go to the Gallery section at the top of the page here you can see the works photographed individually and close up. I will be sure to mention here in a blog post when the auction takes place and hope to post pictures of some of the other wonderful wreaths, too!
I have made this post longer than I had originally intended. I hope to post some about a class I am taking starting next week with a wonderful teacher here in Las Vegas...Joyce Straus. I love her to pieces, she is so multi talented and I can't wait to see what we are going to be creating! Every Tuesday morning I am going to be in heaven for the next eight weeks...maybe she will let me take some photos and I can share with you all here...have a wonderfully creative day and enjoy your weekend!
