"Aspen Contrast" mixed media acrylic/paper © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "Aspen Contrast"
12 x 25"mixed media on MDF panel with 1 3/4" poplar whitewashed cradle sides
WILL BE AVAILABLE ON MY WEBSITE AFTER AUGUST 7

Since the smaller version of this sold I decided to do a larger version.  Actually I had planned to do a larger piece using this basic composition and color scheme before the smaller one (Up Close and Personal) sold...so this was a good time...JUST before the outdoor show next weekend...The colors and papers used are very similar, and the basic composition is the same; however the larger version called for a bit more on the right side...but...it works! AND...as I promised myself I finished the sides right after the painting! YEA!!

I've been collecting lots of little bits of paper...I want to play with it next...already have a title in mind...but I'll hold off until I see if it still fits!  NO REST FOR THE BUSY!! 

THanks to my husband I'm about 3/4 of the way finished with the wire panels I decided to use for hanging my work at the outdoor festival in Conifer next weekend.  This truly was an outdoor show on a shoestring!  I borrowed a tent, purchased sides, and a table, but the rest has been what ever I can come up with that looks good that costs LITTLE!  If I decide that I like doing these and when I have more of that elusive green stuff I'll invest in other; more professional things...but we do what we can with what we have!! RIGHT?...RIGHT!! :)

HAPPY CREATING!

Gorgeous, as always, Saundra. And I've always said necessity is the mother of invention. Personally, I like the idea of a display that stands out from the crowd of white tents! Good luck with the show!
