Portrait of Betty

portrait of betty

Here is a new multi-media collage/painting/drawing of Betty Boo, who will be 5 months old in 2 days. I used Kroma Crackle, a lot of paper, a pencil drawing, and acrylic paint. Now I’m inspired to do one for each of my 4 legged family members. This was a very fun project, I hope you all enjoy it, and have a great day.

2 artists, 1 art class

2 artists,1 art class

Every Tuesday, Lisa Gibbons, on Cortes Island, opens her studio up and invites artists to attend her class. Last week I had the pleasure of bringing a friend from out of town. Paloma Vita and I had a great day creating. I thought I would share both projects that we finished. They are so different, and we had a great time. On the left is the piece by Paloma Vita, and on the right, Ring Ring, Connected by me, Laura Balducci. It’s amazing what different work can come out of 2 artists in the same art class.

Soil Effects

IMG_6003 I’m sharing my newest popart multi-media painting. My intention was to explore the effects on the environment when items end up in the landfill unnecessarily, and the possible effects it can and does have on the things that surround us. This is the first of many to come, and I hope to provoke people to think before just tossing unwanted items away. Look into the options of recycling, reusing and refurbishing.



BLACKOUT!!! Opening today: a solo art show by Laura Balducci, Aug. 23rd to Sept. 10th, at the Co-op Cafe on Cortes Island, B.C., Canada. I would like to invite everyone to an evening of fun on Sept.7th, with music by the unpredictable Del Riviera, and beer from Powell River’s Townsite Brewing.
