Folk Art Primitives Collection

Here is one of my newest paintings that I have added to my etsy shop. She is one of my folk art primitives collection. It combines my love of folk art as well as my love of altered art. My little primitive girl is in love with love. She is wearing a red dress made out of vintage style paper that has been embellished and distressed with inks by Tim Holtz as well as my favorite art supply, a Sharpee marker. Her hair (though hard to see in my picture) has also been embellished with my favorite art supply. I have now painted about five of these little primitives but the other four have been given away as gifts. I am trying to expand the collection a little in the next month or so. I have been working on a primitive for an auction for a school that involves books and reading. The other that I have been working on is a breast cancer primitive painting that will be auctioned and half the money donated to breast cancer research, a cause that is dear to my heart. I will post them as I finish them up. I am thinking that I really need to invest in a light box. The camera thing is just getting me down. You can't see the cool color of my paintings. This one is actually very camel in color but looks a little dark due to the bad lighting.

cool new paintings, I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

About your last post, I'll have to tell my friend who loves that show and is going to hawaii pretty soon. Then I'll be sure to ask her for a special starbucks card!
