Garden ball made from concrete...flower by nature.
One of my glass totems...lives in a container garden now, planted with sedum.
Another art project for my masters...a self portrait collage. Created by pouring cement in a fish bowl...breaking it when dry and then using mosaic technique to add small junky items that tell something about me. Bent fork on top I have had for years...found in a burn pile at a 100 year old farmhouse. Since this is in concrete, it does not mean I am hard headed.
Another view of concrete self portrait.
A page from the childrens book I wrote as another masters assignment. It is an altered book...in its former life it was a discarded Madeline book. I did my artwork on top of the books pages, but left some of the original illustrations too. It is a book about using junk to create and recycling.

Just a mix of several projects, special to me, but not really anything to post individually.
