I love the passion and the joy of the Latin culture and tried to capture that feeling in this piece. The walls were actually cut from a piece of fabric that Gabriela gave me. The floor was a black and white piece, which I painted with thinned textile paints to reflect the colors of the walls and give the illusion of all those colored lights radiating around the room. I've wanted to try a silhouette for a while now, and finally I have. I don't expect it will be the last time.
These are some soda can earrings that I made today. I've been wanting to come up with some ways to use the cool graphics on the cans. I hope to explore this medium further, so stay tuned!
This is a closeup of the "Fresca" pair, which have already been claimed by my daughter. I think if a pre-teen snaps up a piece of your jewelry, that is a very good sign!
I want to take a minute to thank those of you who follow my blog, those who leave comments, and those who don't. Know that I appreciate you being here and sharing my art with me.
