Art Slash Oktoberfest on Thursday!

I 've been experimenting with new little projects lately. This one began with a sheet of watercolor paper, liquid watercolors, and feathers on my mind.

Undiluted liquid watercolors produce very intense, brilliant color. After dripping them on a sheet of water color paper and letting it dry, I cut out multiple feather shapes. Using a fine point black sharpie, I added detail work to each of them.

After letting paint and ink dry thoroughly I attached, with glue, each feather to it's own 5" x 7" archival card.

The finished cards are blank inside, and also fit a standard size frame.Give your loved one a card with a sweet message while also giving them the gift of art! These are only $10 and will be available at my table in the Hillsboro Village Art Walk this Thursday, October 6, from 5- 8pm.

AND, the entire month of October is overflowing with creative events like the Hillsboro Village Art Walk, many thanks to Metro Nashville Arts Commission partnering with dozens of arts and cultural organizations to host the first annual "Artober". Many special art events throughout Nashville during the month of October are occurring, highlighting the depth and breadth of arts activities middle Tennessee has to offer!
