it's called 'playtime'.this is a mixed media piece. i don't usually do mm except for atc's, so this was a first large format one. i don't particularly like it but i was wondering what others thought about it?

Here's mine

PEEKING THROUGH``Done on Canson Watercolor Paper using porus fine tipped pens.~~Wray~~

All very nice!

12 x 12 canvas --- Acrylic...  


This is a visualization of the emotion of paralyzing fear,

This was an experiment with oil blocks on canvas. I've never used them before. What a strange sensation, holding on to this big crayon, trying to control it, yet be free with it when it was sliding all over in your slippery hands. At least it is a fast process, but it burned through the paint at lightning speed. And they aren't cheap. Ouch!

Very nice Dusty! 

Very nice Carla! I don't know anything about oil blocks but it looks like it was a success...lol

This piece is called "Flying Heart"

Nice job Alexis!
