A Little Bit Crazed!

11" x 14" Acrylic/Collage on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

So now, my new computer is about to leave me for awhile.  It's still working (for the time being), but keeps showing me this box that says that there is a hard disk error.  I took it to my computer guy, and he backed up everything for me and said that it needs to go back to Toshiba and probably will come back to me with a new hard drive.  AAARRRRGGGGHHHH!  I've finally gotten this thing to the place where I'm comfortable.  Now I have to do it all over again.

Thinking I will be without a computer over Christmas, when we will be doing some traveling, made me just a little bit crazed!  Yes, I am addicted!  So, I went to Barnes & Noble and bought the new NOOK TABLET.  Of course, there is a learning curve, so I'm still wired!  But, I will have some electronic gadget with me that I can access the internet with.  Whew!

Back to the new collage:  I'm going to be teaching some beginner collage classes after the new year, so I thought I better come up with some different ways to do it.  This one started with collaging the canvas, adding paint, then adding my own painted papers (the yellow and purple) - and even the black lines are actually painted tissue paper rolled up and glued down!  And I added some stamping and stenciling, and there you go!

I've still got another idea brewing, and hopefully, I can get it done before the end of the week.  If I gon't get back - I hope all of you have a Wonderful, Happy, Merry Christmas!

I HATED my Toshiba so bad, that I threw it away and bought an Apple 3 years ago.... I LOVE my Apple and will NEVER go back to a PC again.

I miss my apple..that will be the replacement when this lousy little PC dies and goes to computer heaven or hell.

I've had my Toshiba for 4 years and don't want to give up Windows XP. It's a comfortable old friend. Not a speck of trouble. I also just bought a Nook Tablet (with the same learning curve). I'm told that B&N will have free classes after the first of the year. I'll probably need them.
