FEBRUARY LIVING ART ON THE EDGE

This month I was a bit scattered with all that is occurring in our world.  One of my pieces will reflect the current situation.  Also, this is the month of Valentine's Day and I am sharing a piece honoring sweethearts and lovers the world over.  I have always loved Valentine's Day and the handmade cards I receive from friends.  The adorned chocolate boxes are priceless and although my sweethearts are my friends and chocolates and roses do not come my way, I enjoy walking the aisles of various shops to see what has been created for this special occasion.

 

"Love Has No Boundaries" This particular piece does have a message.  Love takes many forms and all of us must respect each individual's choice regardless of our differences.

"Into the Light" In this particular piece and the first one I use Jonathan Talbot's transfer method which I find to be one of the best.  You can Google his name to view not only his work but equipment and tools available to accomplish your own works of art.
