Mixed Media Capstone Show

I have done three pieces like this now, and I am loving it. The first one I don't have a photo of, yet. The first was two goldfish with dark orange fabric and a light blue background. The second is this one with the reverse, a background of fabric and flat light orange goldfish. The third you have to use your imagination, the last two photos are the same piece, both fish are done in fabric but one is off of the canvas swimming outside of it. My wall space was not big enough to show it. Hopefully I will have a full photo of it if it gets into the capstone show.

being green

This has nothing to do with my art, but I was stumbling and came across an article about how Starbucks employees think it is a hassle when customers bring their own mugs or the starbucks reusable ones. I have personally come across this in using my own canvas bags for shopping. The other day, I put my canvas tote on the conveyor belt in front of my food at Braum's, so the girl would see if before the food. The girl just pushed it to the side and started to bag my food in a paper sack, when I explained that I wanted to use my bag, I then had to bag it myself because she was confused by this. Mostly this is just a rant on how hard it is to be green when it should be so easy. Its just like any other bag, and helping in a small amount, and every little bit counts.

Bowl "o'' Goldfish

Here is a better example of what they will look like.
