An (Almost) ALL ART SATURDAY! Hurrah!

It has been months since I've been able to take time to make art things..besides things for work, that is. Today I had the chance and I grabbed it!

My sister had given me a stainglass (kind of a tiffany style) lampshade that had been broken and she was going to toss it, I took it apart and decided to use the broken and unbroken pieces in some kind of assemblage art.

I had found at Good Will, a LOOONG time ago, this primitive head, made from some kind of wood, painted black.

For awhile now, these items have had me dreaming at night, of ideas to make with them.

So, today I decided to use the stainglass pieces and add them to that wooden head thing.

Here are some photos of the work in progress, and the head (finished for the time being)... I have a feeling God wants me to use this for some other purpose?? I have an large old light bulb I was thinking of using with this piece... still working that out in my head and heart, and needing to find out how to open that lightvbulb without breaking it to add some stuff inside it.

I always wonder that God is saying to me in and thru my assemblages... this one has me wondering still what the message may be.

I think the message is in the making.

Love what you did with the materials you had at hand.
