Floating Bliss


Floating Bliss - Mixed media on 6" x 8" canvas

Floating Bliss framed.

Hand stamped paper on back of Floating Bliss.

This piece was a lot of fun. Every element of it has the artist's touch. I painted the frame, I did the framing installation with the added bonus of hand stamped paper on the back. I want every element of my work to exude the handmade philosophy mixed with a quirky artist's approach. This piece certainly has it all! Making something out of what I've got around has been a thrill and this piece is an example of that. I've had this frame hanging around now for a couple of years. It took really looking at it and re-visioning it's purpose the other day that took it to this new level. Can you tell by my tone that I'm pumped? I'm pumped. Tomorrow is another day to make art. I'm going to work my buns off. That's the plan at least.
