Starting new project

This is 'Happy', one of a pair of mixed media pieces I did at a workshop last summer (I sold the other one). We had to make a collage using a piece of our painted silk, plus all sorts of other fun stuff provided by the instructor. As well as the silk painting, 'Happy' includes modeling paste, tissue paper, gift wrap, window screen, gold leafing and acrylic paint.

Since it's the on;y piece I have like it, I'm pretty sure it feels lonely, so I'm going to do another pair using the same techniques. The bottom picture shows the painting I'm going to use, cut in two. I've had this in my scrap bag for years - I knew it would see the light of day eventually!
