'We're All Mad Here' Painting with added mixed media

We're All Mad Here'
Indeed we ARE! wooohoooo jump onto the bandwagon of wonderland!-it's a tad over populated but we can squeeze in more surely? Good gawd I'm spending WAY too much time online! I can feel my waffling about to we go..So much time just melting into the screen ...I have SO much to DO..So I'm going to post here once a week ..or so & do my VERY best to comment on all your lovely blogs. So sorry if I've not visited you ..I do look & read and oooh & ahh but I don't comment as much as I should,as much as I'd like to! Myself & Jim are still working on 'PAN' the furniture piece...we're surveying counter balance stuff a the moment ..very technical stuff yes's a heavy piece you see..we have to 'stop sticking on clumps of wood ffs -this thing could kill you!'I say....but we 'NEED to counter balance ffs' Jim says.

This is a painting I've just finished. I painted my wonky version of The CC & used various mixed media to add interest ie antique wire rimmed specs -securely wired to the back frame; vintage wallpaper 20's -a gift from my pal Alicia Altered Bits, vintage 50's magazine cut out of an eye -the right one (the left is handpainted-as is the rest of his face) gold leaf & 1920's music manuscript papers.

Secret Sunday

:)Delirah to say that I'll be one of the artists featured on *~The Altered Page 'Secret Sunday'~* this Sun 7th March. It's a fantastic inspiring idea of Seth's that offers to all who are interested, a visual gallery with lists of artists' work secrets, techniques & info. I heard of it via Jo over at The Crow Road. Both Jo & Alicia have also been featured on Seth's Secret Sunday.I think it'll be week 15 this week so if you haven't been then I advise that you get yourself a pen & paper!
