The top image is titled, "The Goddess Abides" and is a watercolor with paper elements. 41/2" x 61/2"

The second image is " What Mother Bares". The Woman is a handcarved stamp using Michelangelo's Virgin Mary from the Sistine Chapel as my inspiration. 41/2" x 61/2"

Collage has always been a favorite medium for me. It allows for a lot of experimentation with high levels of success. As a teacher of art, collage is always a favorite project because of this freedom it affords.
In both of these I was able to incorporate my hand carved stamps which are rather addicting to create. I love to carve small images.

There are eight all together from this series. It was exciting and fun to execute these mixed media beauties.

This spring2006 I was fortunate enough to attend ARTFEST in Port Townsend, WA, and these images are from a class I took with Artist Lynne Perrella. Thanks Lynne for reminding me of what I can do in under 4 hours.

This is my "AH" series- 1 and 2. Assemblage (please say this word with the proper emphasis (the MichealDeMeng way) for the best effect.) The second image is a detail of the last image in this post.

These are some pages from one of myvisual journals.
