For the Chocolate Walk, I have been busy creating mixed media collages.  For this series, I chose a variety subjects, based on my original watercolors, which I  printed on Reeves paper.  The prints were then mounted on 7″ black square substrate.  I decorated each square with metallic inks, acrylic paints, and finished each with unique found objects.  All collages retail for $40.

Today I hung a new collection of framed watercolors featuring both equine subjects and landscapes.  I also have a wide variety of greeting cards, Christmas cards, journals with half-tone images from my pencil studies of horses, small “found-objects” horse sculptures, origami ornaments,  and monoprints.  Get started on your holiday shopping at this fun event!   If  you come the following day, Sunday, November 29th,  I’ll see you there.  Mention this post, and I’ll share some chocolate with you.
