Good moms let you lick the beaters...Great moms  turn them off first.

Now for real...
A Mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take. 
  Tack Down Tuesday 



#050817-A, "Standing Reputation” 6 x 16 piece of collage art with a 2” white mat and black frame to the final size of 10 x 20 ready to hang on your walls.  


Materials Used: 140lb. Watercolor paper, polymer medium, acrylics, magazine paper sanded with rubbing plate underneath. Stained Tissue paper, stenciled Kraft papers with gesso, glazing and acrylics, graphite and sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: Sticking with my theme of spirit animals I would like to create, I’m staying open for the ones that enter into my present life.  This morning after letting our big boy Hank outside he went running to the front gate barking up a storm.  I then went to the front door and opened it and there stood the four legged friend with a standing reputation on the front brick path.   Glass between us we stood looking at each other and then he/she scurried off. Very grateful no one got the stink eye pointed at them. Beware, Skunk Season has started.  Skunk Medicine Card-Jamie Sam  and Skunk Animal Symbolism I know who would want to make a piece of art about a skunk....The challenge was set and this is what came to the surface.
