Beginning the New Year

Posted in 12x12, Challenges, Mixed Media with tags , , , on January 6, 2015 by madelincwolf

It’s been too long since I’ve posted. I’m glad that2014 has passed. It was a somewhat difficult year in spite of the fact that I had some good things happen.  including my renewed interest in writing a novel and a year-long commitment to making 12 pieces of art in a 12” x 12” format. (Probably the main reason I have been so remiss in blogging.) I hope to correct that this year. More blogging, more art= more happiness!

Here is a photo of a piece for the 12″ x 12″ challenge.

Mixed Media Stitch Finalist!

Posted in Challenges, Mixed Media, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 17, 2013 by madelincwolf

Before I injured my back, I made a piece for the Cloth Paper Scissors “Mixed-Media Stitch” challenge.  I found out yesterday that I am one of the finalists.! I will send in my entry and, hopefully will be included in an upcoming issue of CPS magazine.  This really was an uplifting piece of news.  This piece represents the healing I have been doing over the past year.  I am not finished yet, but my heart is healing.  I used a quilted practice piece, folded tea bags, embroidery, a gold Lumiere paint wash and a cardboard heart with glued-on eggshells colored with Adirondack Alcohol Inks. the twig is coriander painted red.  I enjoyed creating this piece and look forward to doing more eggshell mosaic art pieces.
