more ALteReD SLiDeS

"Fire" coldpress watercolor paper, acrylics, oil pastels

As with most projects I start, I did not have a notion about where I was headed. Once I assembled this piece , the thought of fire resurrected, the fire we experienced here in our own backyard this past October during the San Diego firestorm. It is reminscent of the glow I stared at just before we evacuated.

"Take 3" altered slide, cut original transparency and reworked with stamps and markers, interference acrylic paint and watercolor paper.

Thought for today:
" When you have developed the ability to do the small jobs well, greater jobs will come to you"

Enjoy your day! My otherblogspot: "The Way I See It"

I totally "see" the firestorm backgroun on the firts slide. Both are really great...still no news down here...maybe early next week we've been told. Good or bad? We won't know until then.

The fire must have been horrific. Glad your house and spirit thrived over ramdom adversity.

The slides are intriging, mispelled on purpose I am sure.

Poached a cod - come by sometime.

So cool how you have transformed slides. I love the Fire piece. I can see the glow, almost surreal in its existence.
