I put together this digital collage the other night. I used one of my lake photos and layered my angel photo over it. I really loved the surreal feel it has. I did try adding a texture layer but it was too much. I think the leaves and trees lend enough texture to the image. Funny I never thought I would say no to texture! lol I am really having fun playing with this new medium, so much so that I am neglecting a big blank canvas that has been begging for paint!
Now for my exciting news! I have been wanting to share this for a couple of weeks but wanted to wait till I was sure it was a go. And now it is! My art will be displayed in a gallery! It is the Gallery Off Broadway in Excelsior Springs, MO. I found out about it from my sweet friend Kelly over at Kelly Berkey Designs and with her encouragement have jumped aboard! The owner Kathleen Fenton is so lovely and encouraging to new artists such as myself. You can check out the facebook page for the gallery HERE!! I have sent some of my original paintings and was excited to find out that she also loved my altered photography! So I framed a few of my favorite textured photos and sent them along as well. My work arrived there on Friday and I am so excited that it will soon be on display!
It hard to believe that little over a year ago I was just beginning on this amazing journey with art and now I have an incredible opportunity to share my work in a new venue! I am so grateful to all of you for your encouragement and support along the way! I am having a blast!
Hubby and I are off to a local art museum on this beautiful Sunday. I am hoping to take some photos of the grounds and will be sure to post them! They may even have some texture! :)
Wishing you all an amazing day!! xo
