My first post, I'm so excited. I am really looking forward to using this blog to not only keep track of my art pieces, but I hope it can be a useful tool in reaching out to so many other talented people out there and getting everyone's ideas and opinions on my artwork as it progresses and how I might be able to improve. I would like to share with everyone out there my first completed piece which, mind you, is a product of trial and error (and salvage) seeing as I am still working on figuring out exactly what I want my art to look like and how to make that happen. Also, I have decided that my guinea pig for my art will be my love, my cat, Avalon.
This piece is a 6x6 gallery wrapped frame where I have glued the picture of Avalon down and then traced with a fine tipped black pen all the different variations of colors in the photo. Then I wrapped the edges with a 2" glitter trim tape and finished it off with edging the photo and the corners with copper tape. How did I do?
