My piece for our "Winter Holiday Gift" is "Joy." In celebration of Christmas comes a time when people reflect of those they love and thoughts secret to ones own heart. I desired to make a piece of art that one would delight in.
My media for "Joy" was a mixture of items found within my art studio, I sketched my picture with pencil on canvas, paint colors chosen were of yellow, red, pink, orange, white and 14kt gold paint, yarn and twine for the hair, ribbon, lace, mirror plastic snowflakes and pink glass mosaic. For puppy dog I cut soft material for puppy's body and red cardboard for the collar, plus chocolate brown cardboard for puppy's nose. If you look you can see one side of the puppy looking at the girl and if you look again you can see the puppy with its back towards you while looking forward.
