New Series: Juxtaposition

Juxtaposition Series:
1. an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, esp. for comparison or contrast.
2.the state of being close together or side by side.

This collection will be sets of two pieces or two images on the same canvas.

Starting with Mimi and Margie, this is my grand mother and her sister. I remember a photo of them together on the front porch. Dressed up for an outing and Margie is wearing a dress with large ruffled collar, and Mini just had a simple dress. They never had much material things but always sister love. It has always been that way!! (Its the best !)

Dress Maker - New 2011 Design

New design " Dress Maker" I love this design. After hand cutting each dress, each one is adhered to the board. I havent cut paper dolls or clothing in a great long time, if ever. This is a true joy. I will carry this design in color and black and white.

The new Dick and Jane Series is for all my friend who commented about Hurt 58. With Hurt 58.. I just had extra materials laying around.. and have more of those coming. But with Dick and Jane, I have always loved those sweet images!! I am not a Dr Jeckle or Mr. Hide... there was just materials that were calling to me!!! (lol!!)

Well you can say this one, does not the Dick and Jane element or flare. In the art world you have to look at both sides of the coin. I still use flawed materials. The things that general public doesn't see spark or possibles. My world of supplies consist of the forgotten, flawed, and outdated. I love it!
