More Beeswax and Being Brave

A few more collages ranging from 2 3/4" square (hand with bird) to 6 x 8" (the girl).

You may notice a new badge along the blog right hand side "One Thing Be Brave". If you click on it it'll take you to what it's all about. It's based on Eleanor Roosevelt having said "Do one thing every day that scares you." I'm not trying for EVERY day, but just more often to try and conquer fears. I've just completed one thing that had me scared to death - my watercolor class! I was really scared of taking that 'cause I've never been a painter. Well, I actually enjoyed it and have 3 completed. I'm hoping to get some photos done tomorrow and then will post them.

I'm working on collages for the show I'm in the first Friday in September. Three local women artists showing at the women's building in Albany as part of the Albany First Friday art event. Unfortunately, I won't be there 'cause that was the weekend my oldest daughter was able to get a cabin for the weekend and we'll be there (why is everything all at once!!).

Right now my piece and Dyani's are at the Greene County Show in Windham. That will be going on until September 20th.

Today's quote HAS to be the aforementioned one - "Do one thing every day that scares you." Eleanor Roosevelt

Laura; terrific collages here! I look forward to your watercolor paintings, too. You took the plunge and I'm proud of you. Watercolor is tricky; it has a way of getting away from us :) At least that's how I felt but I'm getting more comfortable with it the more I work with it. I want to see your art on display in Windham and Albany. Congrats on all of your accomplishments. Love, Marilyn
