• Welcome to My Creative Year!

    Thanks so much for coming to see what I've been up to. I'm in the midst of a self-challenge to *create* for a year straight. I needed something to fill a weird void I was feeling, and exploring different styles of art and creativity seems to fit the bill! So, Welcome! I'm glad you've come for a visit...
  • Heartfelt Thanks

    I don't always have a chance to thank everyone who leaves such lovely comments on my projects. I just want to express my appreciation for your encouragement and compliments on my creative journey. You are all greatly appreciated!

Get’cher Kicks …

… on Route 66!  Simply Skinnies challenge this week is to create a “Skinny” (a 3×5 piece of art) inspired by Historic Route 66.  This is another one of those that I didn’t put too much thought into, but had fun creating.

Wouldn’t it be fun to get in an old Woody with a classic airstream and hit the road on a Retro Roadtrip?

The yellow block in the corner is actually a picture of an old album cover from a record titled “Music from the All-American Highway.”  I continued the “road” off the album cover, and added the sillouette of the old car and Airstream and the highway sign.  And of course, going along with my un-official style, I had to come up with a 3-dimensional element for the piece, so I bent the wheels of the car and trailer over so they would stick up off the page.

(This is a bad picture of it, but just putting it in here so you get an idea of the 3-D-ness.)

Well, if I didn’t have spring fever before, thinking about roadtrips has certianly given it to me now!  Let’s hit the road!
