Chaos on Canvas

You may recall a previous post earlier this summer about a canvas swap project I was having oodles of fun creating for in the "All Things Tim" Yahoo group.  Well, the swap took place & I have received my finished work of art back from the swap hostess, Sharona, and lemme tell totally rocks!  For the participants, Sharona attached the 5 canvases together that each of us was to receive & created a header piece for the top (note:  we all had 1 of our own canvases included in the 5 we got back & I thought that was great because I was rather attached to those I'd made; guess that's to be expected when you put your heart & soul into creating).  So, without further ado, here is the art piece that is now hanging proudly on the inside of my front door:

My canvas
Stephen Jew's FANTASTICAL creation~isn't it wonderful?
Canvas created by Barb Urbassik; LOVE how she cut a "window" into the piece!

Amazing canvas creation from Jason Pettigrew~so COOL!
Michael Farrell's DIVINE vintage Paris canvas...Ooh La La!

Thank you, Sharona, for being such a FABULOUS swap host and also to each of the artists who created such BEAUTIFUL canvases.  I ADORE them all!

2011 Sketchbook Project is underway...

I am so excited about taking part in this artistic adventure that is a worldwide undertaking!  Click on the link at right for more deets & there is still time to participate~sign up by 10/31/10 at the project site.

My chosen them for my sketchbook is "Make Mine A Double".  Wondering what I will be creating in this theme?  Check back here periodically for sneak previews!  I can't wait to see where this journey will take me and I'm tickled pink at the idea of having you along for the ride...whether as a participant in the project or a visitor here to see the progress of my book.  Won't this be fun?
