More Vignettes II

Continuing on with the vignette play I started in my last post, here are more shots from the past two days.

I was looking at my bare trees in the backyard today,

and got an idea.  They have such sculptural branches.

I whacked off some of the branches, brought them into my studio, and placed them in some of my urns.  I added crystal prisms here and there.  Just another possible Christmas decor idea I'm considering.  I altered the little bottle with burlap, gesso, and a vintage stamp.  I'm making a bunch of these.

My hurricane is holding some of the branches, and strings of crystals.  Reminds me of ice.  In front are more of my metal roses.  I sprayed these silver.

I'll be back with more ideas, redesigns, and announcements.  See ya soon.
