After a few more days of work on her, she is finished! Well I still need to seal her, but I want to make sure I don't find something I need to change first. That said, I am very happy with how she turned out, even if it is not the direction that I started. She is made completely out of magazine paper. At the moment she is untitled. I will update that when I come up with one. (If you can, step away from the computer and look at her from a distance. The experience is worth it.)

I started this piece in the direction of putting a painted mask on her. However, the further I got into putting her together the more hesitant Nick, my husband, was on having me continue in that direction. Needless to say, I followed his advice and I am working to finish her in a less dramatic but more realistic fashion. I will put up the finished pictures as soon as she is completed.

These are a couple of pieces that are in the works. I come back to them when I need a break from what I am working on. The women in the multicolored dress is actually different than my other collages, because she is done as a transfer (so she is transparent to some degree and there is no paper left). I have a way to go finishing the background on thatone. The second is a small painting and is one I started one night and haven't come back to again, but will eventually.
