On Canyon Road in Santa Fe, there are LOTS of galleries. It is amazing the amount of art in this city. Today was the Annual Paint Out where artists make art "live" outside, in front of the galleries where they show their work. I was invited by my friend, Shawna, who has CURIOSA, to sit out front and make my art.....so I did.
So odd to see photos of myself since I am usually the one behind the camera.
This is one of the new items I worked on today. I have started to cut up beautiful beer cans that we find at Trader Joe's.....the colors and patterns are FAB! (see the little green leaves around the nest)
Here is my very messy table, though you can see the blue & white harlequin designed cans for Oktoberfest Beer....yummy! Below are the little discs that I have cut from them that will eventually become flowers on the wire skirt of papier-mache figure...can't wait to how they turn out.
fun, aren't they?
