Hi everybody! I have been MIA on social media while I've been vacationing with my family (We went on a road trip through seven states in nine days and it was incredible!) as well as dealing with a broken computer which has really hindered my progress. My computer is still down, but I'm pushing forward with what resources I do have. Here is a project I've been working on this week that I will be submitting in the Handcart Days Art Exhibition at Bountiful Davis Arts Center. I've always wanted to try gold leafing on a charcoal project and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! It was scary putting the glue down on my finished drawing knowing that it was an experiment and if I hated it I would have to completely start over. I was holding my breath while brushing the dried leafing and watching it flake off but sometimes risks are worth taking! It turned out better than I had hoped!
I hope you are all well and enjoying your summer!
P.S. Every month I give away a 5X7 single person portrait as my way of saying THANK YOU for your amazing support. Any comment over the last month is an entry to win it. I will announce June's winner in the next day or so! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
