2012 was a big year for me creatively, and while I blogged about some projects, here are a few wall art pieces that I never posted for various reasons.
This piece was definitely the most inspired. My raw materials were various pieces of paper, paint, fabric, and thread. I am very happy with the end result, and I don't feel like the photograph does it justice. The yellow square is a dryer sheet with a poem about the ocean written on it. It's a lot of work, but I would like to create more art quilts in the future, as it's an opportunity to tell a story through mixed media.
The above two pieces represent my foray into subway art. The top one is a tribute to Austin, TX. The bottom one is a tribute to my sister and bro-lo and memorable streets for them. Raw materials were wood, paint, wax, sandpaper, mod podge, and the street names printed on legal paper.
This is pinterest-inspired paint chip art. (I fixed the wonky "a" before giving it to my mom to hang in her studio.) Definitely not the most creative piece, but I like the study in color it offers. Raw materials: paint chips, card stock, double sided tape. Pretty lo-tech.
