after the long delay

 
 
EXPLORATION of the SPIRITUAL SELF
 
12 x12 Mixed Media Collage
 
 
After a long delay, I have taken off in all directions.  I have been playing with Citra Solve and also with the Gel Plate...love both.  The above collage has a bit of both and mixed media.  I am still painting on the small side, most pieces no larger than 12 x12.  You can view my work at Vision Gallery Chandler AZ.  Art Stop Gallery Ajo, AZ. Catitude Gallery Avondale, AZ.  Also, jewelry at In-Power Boutique Avondale AZ. and The Purple Lizard Boutique Phoenix, AZ.  The above collage is currently hanging at Catitude Gallery in Avondale AZ.
