New Mixed Media Pieces

I don't really know how this turned into an art blog, but it kind of did and I'm just going to roll with it. The fact that I don't like house projects the same way so many other bloggers seem to enjoy them has been a determining factor, I'm sure. Although I do wish I liked house projects....there are so many things I want done, but so many things I'd rather be doing that I just don't do well when it comes to the active task of everything a project entails. 
But anyway, I've been on this art kick since last summer when I was in mega-make-mode for my art show, and the feeling hasn't really diminished. Which is a good thing....prior to that I had taken a long, long time off from my art, mainly to do those damn house things I talked about. The art has given me some form of balance and I really enjoy coming up with new pieces.
This chevron tree piece is hanging in that coffee shop I talked about last week and I like the way it turned out. I pulled myself to use yellow and red and I'm glad I did. It feels a lot different than the majority of my other stuff since I usually fall into the comfort of various shades of blue. Having something that's warm is nice.

I LOVE that top piece! Are the rectangles painted on with a stencil, or are the collaged?
