8" square acrylic and collage on canvas. The cutie part in the title comes from the name of the tangerines. SOLD
Remember I blogged about Mary McCleary on Friday? She was wonderful! She showed slides of her incredible collage paintings and spoke unapologetically of how they generated from her Christianity. I am dying to see them in person now. It was validating to me that her use of a polka dot grid came from wanting to refer to the presence of God also. I love how she uses googly eyes. I was too in awe to go talk to her and cheaped out and didn't get the catalgue that was available for sale.

This triptych is composed of three 6 inch cradled wood panel squares. I've used acrylic paint, prismacolor pencil, vintage Golden Book Encyclopedia pages, and wrapping paper.
I have a new exacto knife I'm really thrilled with that lets me cut narrow strips. It's perfect for what I've been wanting to do, saves me a lot of time. A Queen Ann's Lace flower skeleton in the middle with a prairie dodder weed image on the right. The title is taken from one of my favorite Laurie Anderson songs, "Strange Angels." SOLD

24" by 36" acrylic and collage on gallery wrapped canvas with 1 and 3/4" profile.
It may be hard to see, but there are some still life elements in here, under the layers. I used one of my abandoned paintings from several years ago as a beginning point.
