The First Reader

This was the original "The Reader" .

Its done on a 16 x 20 stretched canvas, with tons of coloring and collage work. I also added sparkles and beads.

Love the coloring-sparkles just make everything wonderful don't they? :]

Your art is moving and colourful.
I totally agree with you, the painting would look great as a section with the face mainly. Thank you for sharing this with me.

Love your work. I came across your blog after visiting another art blog. I am a reading teacher of 23 years. I also dibble and dabble around with mixed media. Just a beginner though!
I love the picture of "The Reader." My students would love that.

Your work is very interesting and? I don't know how to describe it, but I like it. I like the figures, I like the colors, everything--it's pretty. I came to your blog via 'New Day, New Season'. I will come back later for a closer look.

This is so pretty! You are such an inspiration:) I will sooo be following your blog. I've been dabbling in papers, pen and inks and creating some collages as well. I have yet to post them on my site but I will be soon. I'm a newbie to blogspot. You can see some of my work at
