Wrapping things up…

Well, my time here at the Tin Shop is winding down, and I find myself facing the end of my residency time.  Bittersweet to be sure…I’ve had such a wonderful experience being here and have loved the scenery and surroundings as well as the awesome people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.   In a recent post I showed images of some work in progress, I now have both those pieces completed.  Here are the finished products:

Not only have I finished work some of it has already left Colorado.  I shipped out all the pieces for the “Art on Record” show and also sent a box full of completed artwork to the frame shop back home so they can get started with the framing.  My studio space here is starting to look a bit “naked” as things slowly leave.  

 I have continued working on the “junk journals” and finished some blank ones to leave here as gifts for Jenn & Gretchen, who have been so wonderful to work with. I also have the cover of the first journal finished now…I am keeping the first two for myself, for one reason they were very much “trial & error” projects and also just for sentimental reasons.  Here are some samples of the completed journals:

 I have some smaller (5×7″) mixed media pieces that I am finishing up that I think I can just pack & ship home with my art supplies.   This is what they looked like when I was cutting out the shapes, I’ll get photos of the completed pieces tomorrow before I pack them…I ran out of daylight for photography by the time I had them completed this evening.

As I was preparing some of my supplies for the trip back home I took several photos of sheets of paper that I had brought with me, much of it handmade.  I loved the texture & patterns and after taking photos of it laying flat I realized it would be even better to photograph against the window with the light illuminating it from behind.  SO, once all my supplies have left on Saturday I will have those images to play with in Photoshop.   I’m thinking of combining them with some of the images from my road trips…maybe something new to add to my “Art & Nature” series?

Until tomorrow…

Lynne
