Mixed Media Monday - Mothers and Daughters




I decided to kick myself out of my comfort zone and try creating a couple of canvasses that are larger. I have a tendancy to work on smaller surfaces. All of that blank space that needs to be filled makes me rather nervous to begin. My task was to design a couple of pieces that represented the lives and loves of my Mother and my Grandmother. I wanted to give them pieces of art for their birthdays. These two canvasses honouring this mother/daughter duo are my entry for Mixed Media Monday this week.
Also, please feel free to enter my draw for an altered microscope slide mailer in celebration of Hallowe'en. You can find it at this post.
