what makes a home

last project from the holiday season catch-up...

this was a homemade gift for my mom - she had requested a piece of art from her children for her newly renovated snuggery (a den of sorts with a much more poetic name :)

this was a collaboration between my hubbie and I
it was very difficult to capture the subtle paint colors and textures with photos - unfortunately it looks much darker/grungier than it is in person...but you get the idea

textures and glazes in paint, simple found objects and collage

combined to represent the simple pleasures that reminded us of home

simple compositions and groupings of common objects sometimes make the most impact

it is very large - the substrate is an old barn board - hubbie and I had a really nice time creating this together
I don't get a chance to work large very often so this was a wonderful treat - working in different scales is a great way to challenge your artistic self

and mom was tickled with the result - which is the best part of all
