Opening Day Jitters
mixed media/collage
24 x 24
In choosing my first work of art to "journal" I clearly had to choose this one. After a year of creating and re creating this piece and not being happy with the results I had an "aha" moment and over the course of the day this piece evolved.
Gesso, fluid acrylics, crackling paste, numeric stencils and charcoal pencil combined to make this one of my favorites. I can almost feel the excitement of the horses! How about you?


  1. I love this piece! I got to see it "in person" but didn't touch it and wanted to. The texture of it and the piece has such movement to it. You're right; I can absolutely feel the horses' excitement.

  2. I love this! I'm so happy to be able to see your work! We met at the Sand Lake Arts Center. Thanks for sending me the link to your blog!
