Here we have my daughter on her 17th birthday at the beach. - mostly collage papers and some paint with a glaze to age the picture.
A couple of experimental ideas...I made the paper that looks like sand. I just used medium and glued long strips of cotton to a piece of tissue paper. I made it sometime ago and been wanting to use that somewhere. Also, the basket was made by scanning in a piece of cane wallpaper. Then printing the appropriate size.
The white wave and sail were made from tissue paper that I stamped with a piece of cheese cloth.

My daughter and her friend are subjects of this mixed media painting (13"w x 8"H).
My daughter and I took a mother/daughter trip to Palm Desert to go shopping, enjoy the pool and (for me) look at a few galleries. I was inspired by 2 artists Betty Haight and Stephanie Cunningham who work together to paint these lovely paintings. This is my twist on their idea.
