Highly Prized

MJRussell_Jan2011_Highly Prized | Flickr – Photo Sharing!.

January is a month for catching up . . . and branching out!  This year I’m experimenting with new media as well as textiles, but of course can’t resist integrating some of my previous artwork in new ways.  I’m a member of The Sketchbook Challenge, where January’s theme was “highly prized.”  Here I’ve collaged a digital image of my puppy (which I’ve also used in the past as a photo emulsion silk-screen) over a background of gesso and acrylic paints and highlighted with wax crayon, art pens, & markers.  As you can tell from the journal text, he was a bit of a wild child!

Do check out the Flickr site for The Sketchbook Challenge to see hundreds of images from other members of the group!
