Shaz



This will be a first...I am going to attempt a mixed media dog. My muse is Shaz, a beautiful greyhound that my out-laws rescued about 8 years ago. I have already put in a background of collage, gold and copper leaf and acrylic paint but I fear I have broken my own 'first fule of mixed media' - don't add texture too soon! Anyway, I will have to work with it. So far I have only drawn in my charcoal sketch - I think I need to let this composition percolate for a couple of days, somewhere in the mix I want to add a tennis ball to represent her 'new' life as a happy family pet. I am tentatively calling this one 'Repurposed'
