Mixed Media on Canvas

So, After finding out my friend died in a horrible hicking accident, I was going through his Facbook page and realized he had so many things posted that we could remember him by.. photos, videos, clips of his singing, short films, etc. He was only 20 and seemed to have lived every day to the fullest.

Anyhoo.. I looked at mine and decided I need to do more of what I like. I'll take that lesson from him, we can always plan for tomorrow but it may never come.

So, I'm not putting it off any longer, the laundry can wait.. I've been wanting to paint a mixed media canvas and found some antique prints I wanted to incorporate into the picture. I'm not sure they are done yet, but here is where I'm at so far..

 I plan to spend much more time in the art room... I hope you can too!

Vacation ended Aug 14, but we arrived home to very sad news.

We had a wonderful vacation and I will post some pics very soon.

As some of you may know, I work for a local Theatre Company doing some backstage work as well as set painting and props. When you work in Theatre everyone around you becomes your theatre family, we spend so much time together laughing, working, socializing and hugging... sadly I arrived home to the news that one of our theatre family members, an exceptionally bright, talented and witty 20 year old man who grew up on the stage before us, was missing and believed to have drowned after falling during a hiking trip. He was quickly swept away by the river below. As devastating as this was it only got worse.. Now after 10 days of tireless searching by amazing volunteer Search and Rescue teams, they found his body in a log jam. While trying to dislodge some of the logs to reach him, the powerful water pushed the logs away, causing his body to fall into a deep hole.. followed by some very large boulders. They have not decided if they will continue the recovery.. it's a very deep ravine and getting equipment in is nearly impossible.

As soon as this madness ends I'll be back to share my vacation pics and some mixed media art work I have been working on to distract myself from this nightmare.

Thanks and hugs to all my followers.
