I have completed a house as part of a local invitational exhibit. 20 other artists from all mediums have been invited to create a home. This is a picture of the front of 7 Meadow Drive 2008
House is simply the word for a physical structure;
A Home is the word for the place where individuals live. It congers up feelings of birth place, belonging, togetherness, cooperation, assistance, joy and above all love.
My home is a place of warmth where you hang your hat It is a place of refuge, full of laughter, music and conversation. It is a place that nurtures dreams, innovation, art and creativity. It is a place of wonder
where you imagine and share/ Finally it is a place of love and growth.
Materials: Pellon, acrylic paints, gel medium, molding paste, watercolors, pastels, grass,
color/black and white photo copies of photographs and pictures, various fibers, beads and embellishments.
Techniques: The pellon was cut to size and covered with a layer of gesso. Paint and molding paste was applied to simulate the interior and exterior walls. Copies were appliqued. Various paints were layered and sanded and layered again. Details were added with molding paste and painted. Dried grasses were added to roof the exterior. Finally various fibers and embellishments were added.
