Hello fellow bloggers. It's been awhile since I posted, and even a longer while since I've created anything from start to finish, but I thought a check-in was in order. All work and no play, I am, and that has totally stifled my creative urge. I pulled out the acrylics and spread some paint around tonight just to keep in practice. Nice to play around without fussing about the results. I started another piece this weekend and have a good bit more work to do on it, so hopefully soon I will have something to share. For now, I unearthed an older ATC sized collage made of remnants and odd pieces that accumulate from my trimmings and scraps. A simple silhouette.

Thanks so much to everyone who has shown interest in the Past Portraits Flickr group. It is great to share with you all and so exciting to see what you do with the cabinet cards. Some really fabulous work has been posted to the group. Take a look if you have a minute.

Also, I want to say a very, very belated thank you to Stacey at ArtSnark's Artifacts for granting me a blog award. It is very rewarding to know that my humble little dabblings strike a chord of interest. Please visit Stacey's blog here and enjoy her inspiring work.

Ciao for now.

What a lovely collage. I have always loved the subtlety of silhouettes and the mystery in leaving out the details for the viewers imagination. Modigliani did that with his portriats too. Good work.

Hey Shelly, welcome back to your creativity and the blogging world ... it seemed so quiet without you. As always love your work ... there's so much depth and things to discover in it. Sorry it took me so long to visit since your latest post ... had to tear myself away from the computer and actually complete some art for swaps I'd committed to. Chat soon. Love, Di.

Ah, there you are. I was wondering about you.
I hope you have more studio time soon. Life gets in the way sometimes, doesn't it?
Have a beautiful weekend!
