Finally, ART

Well, I think it's another WOYWW tomorrow, And PPF Friday but I'm so off schedule, I'm not sure...
No worries...
I HAVE been working today....and yesterday...
A gift for my roomie/tour guide/pal on my recent Santa Fe trip....
Lots of layers from papers scooped up during our visit....
I think I've "aged" her a bit...
But I'm still pleased with what I captured....
My sweet friend with dreams of returning to Santa Fe...
with her very own "earthship"....
goats, chickens....
and lots of room for visitors!

I can't wait to return with her:)

  5. boo hoo

    I left my earth ship in Wales,

    my art will be up later,

    this is a lovely piece and I suspect that hand took ages, beautifully proprotionate, excellent shading, hands only look right when they are not wrong, and then no one notices them - bummer.

  33. Lovely piece. I haven't ever really been into collage but it seems like a lot of PPFer's are and looks like fun, so I might have to fool around with it sometime....if I can get some space between pet portraits! Happy PPF!
