About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

SCISSORS/CISEAUX

"Scissors/Cuseaux"
5" x 6.5" Mixed Media Drawing on Distressed French/English Dictionary

I am excited to try drawing some images on a French/English dictionary.  I actually borrowed this dictionary from our high school French teacher with the intention of photocopying some pages but during a particularly hectic morning I discovered I had accidentally torn the book.  I was horrified!  Thankfully I discovered a replacement book online and my friend was understanding and forgiving about me destroying her dictionary.

So I now have a whole French/English Dictionary to scribble on!  This image is pretty simple because the pages of this book were really thin and fragile so I was fearful of working too many marks onto the surface.
