Chimney Sweep painting is finished! The raccoon girl and the other big painting are in oils and still drying. Chimney sweep is in acrylics, 16 x 20. He's going into an ornate frame, which I still need to paint. Happy Memorial Day!
New paintings! The first one "Lost" is 16 x 20 , the second "Betty" is 11 x 14. Lost is oil on wood, sculpted face and party hat. Betty is acrylic on wood, sculpted face and hat. Both on their way to Pop Gallery in Santa Fe as soon as the oil dries! xo Michele
Meet Elizabeth! Elizabeth likes being the school teacher to all the
Steampunk Soul kids, she wears the hat they made her, proudly!
Elizabeth is 14 1/2" tall x 3 1/4" x 4". She is hand sculpted from
epoxy over an armature. She has vintage watch pieces on her forehead and
under her right eye. A found piece is attached to her head and left
eye. Her hat is decorated with a page from a vintage church page. Her
left arm is a found copper piece. Her right arm is a rosary bead, and a
scissor charm. Her neck is made from another metal found piece. She is a
one of a kind collectible titled signed and dated on the bottom.
Available in my etsy shop for a short time! http://www.etsy.com/listing/99178563/steampunk-souls-mixed-media-ooak-art
I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
