New Works

I went for a trip back home to the Chicago burbs for a couple of weeks. Here's what I have been working on since I got back. I don't often have more than one going on at once...

To the left is another one using whimsical pottery and fresh flowers. I just love these and plan on having several for the Art in the Park Show in Keene in September. So far they are all 8" x 10."

Below is a new portrait I'm working on that is about 12" x 16." It is the second half of a diptych I started a while back - kind of a contemporary engagement portrait. 

Then finally what I think is the final version of Artifact. I hope!

I love the diptych, Nicole. It's such a great idea and there's a mystery to it somehow. Brilliant!

Nicole,

I find your "kitsch" art truly delightful and unique. It is such a refreshing idea. Love it!

I am considering moving from old paper to new paper for some smaller pieces I have rolling around in my head. Would you mind terribly revealing to me what paper you are using, what kind of a support is backing the paper, and how you are mounting it on the support. Please.

sure! Its Fisher 400 paper... from Tim Fisher in England. It is a sanded paper with a 400 grit. I then bring it to my framer and have it mounted on gatorboard. I think they "drymount" it.
