Restocking the gallery

I recreated a couple of pieces that had sold at The Artisan Center Along the Crooked Road and hung them today, to display along with nine collaged blank journals that I did for Christmas shoppers.

Misty Moon

8″ x 10″  Misty Moon is a collage. Oil pastels blended with linseed oil on paper create the night sky. Oil pastels blended with linseed oil on sheet music create the moon. Lightly covered with antique angel hair, under glass. By Heather Brush. This is a version of another piece that sold, Once in a Blue Moon. For sale at The Artisan Center Along the Crooked Road in Rocky Mount, VA. $35.00

Tools of Beauty II

12″ x 14″  Tools of Beauty II is an assemblage piece. Flat wire sculpture under glass, with antiqued pattern material. The metal frame is adorned with found objects: metal flower salt shaker, metal shoe stretcher, and sewing machine feet. This replicates Tools Of Beauty, sold from The Artisan Center Along the Crooked Road. By Heather Brush. For sale at The Artisan Center Along the Crooked Road in Rocky Mount, VA. $35.00
