Excess, for Illustration Friday. Mixed media Clay, collage, paint, digital. By Mary Stebbins Taitt. Have a great holiday season without TOO much Excess, LOL!

This, like much of my work, is an ongoing project. I don't work as fast as some people seem to. See earlier drafts. See detail.

Wow. This is very interesting. I hope Santa doesn't forget to deliver the gifts. Ha, ha!

I know how he feels. I'll need a drink after each Santa incarnation I have to do.

Thanks so much Melissa and Coffeypot. I appreciate your kind comments.

Coffeypot, it was your story about being Santa that gave me the idea for this piece, LOL, not that I suspected you of such behavior. LOL!

It was lots of fun. Thanks everyone.

I think I will

1)finish this if I have time

2)do some more mixed media starting with clay--if gives such an interesting dimensionality. LOL!

THANKS :-D

Wow. What an interesting piece. I really like your mixed media work.

First...thanks for visiting my 45309 blog. It is a testing ground.

My real stuff is found in other places.

I wanted to describe the White Porcelain Duck I photographed this morning. I did put a picture of it on my Birds Blog as it is a new species I think.

Thanks for your visit, Old Man Lincoln. And for your nice comment! :-D

That is a great Santa. It would be interesting to sit down and have a beer with Santa; I am sure he would have some awesome stories.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Thanks, Josh! I bet he would too! LOL! :-D
