"It's been a long time...

...since I've seen your smiling face." - Cake

O art, how I miss thee! I've been doing a lot of wedding-related design these days, but have been so desiring to make my own art again soon. The first piece is a little project I did up for a woman from church. I actually took out some paint and washed a new color over the mat board I used. It felt SO GOOD to paint again, even if just for a quick wash of color.

The second piece is just a little environmentally-inspired design I was just messing around with. I was experimenting with some photographed elements: scraps from the mat board, on a black coffee table, with the flash on. This is pretty much the scraps and the reflected light manipulated in Photoshop. I think I want to experiment with the black background a little more though. It seems lacking... Fun fun though!
