Morphing Angel

This mixed media art piece started out as an angel, then sort of merged with goddess and fairy. That's why I call her a morphing angel, a hybrid. I didn't realize until I was done painting her that she pretty much sums up my ideal version of the Universe -- a mix of fantasy and tradition.

Have a Heart

It's been a while since I've been able to do any serious art since I've been recuperating from a bad back. I still can't sit for long periods of time, but it's getting better. When I finally was able to get back into the studio,  I found myself in the mood to play with color and texture. So, I did. :)

This is basically a 3-D mixed media collage on canvas. I'm loving the texture, but am undecided about the overall composition. These photos don't do the piece justice as the colors are really very vibrant in person.

What do you think?
