Hello Everyone and welcome to my very first blog entry! My blog is going to be a place where I share my work, talk about my inspirations for each piece, and let you all in on what is currently influencing my work. I am very excited to hear everyone's comments and to make lots of new friends! I create new work several times a week so check back often for all the latest. So here I go....
This collage is titled, "Molly Builds Her Best Friend". It measure 8 x 10" and is collaged onto wood panel and has 1" sides which have been texturized. The swirl designs in the background were created using a stencil and stencil paste, so it has a wonderful raised texture. The images were created using a combination of vintage images and decorative papers.
I have developed this facination with early American and Victorian dolls. I find them to be kind of creepy, yet beautiful at the same time. I have created a couple of other pieces with this doll theme which I will be posting very soon. If you can't wait, you can view them, and my other work at http://sarahogren.etsy.com . You can also see more of my art at http://sassymidwesthousewife.com . If you would like to purchase any of my work you can do so through either the etsy link or the sassy midwest housewife link above. Both sites have different pieces so check them both out!
Hope everyone has a very Happy New Year!!
