little houses


I have been spending time in my studio working on these 5" x 4" mixed media blocks.  I got hooked in an online class by the talented artist Junelle Jacobsen. 

I've been experimenting with a couple of different techniques, trying to make them my own.  I'm not sure I'm quite there yet but that's alright, I am having so much fun trying.

For now I have a pretty good supply of blocks to practice on and have been eyeing my husbands wood pile for suitable scrap lumber for him to cut some more.  If my calculations are right, he has enough wood to keep going for quite awhile.

And that's a good thing, these silly little blocks are kind of like potato chips.  You just can't stop at one.
