i came to get down
8" x 10.5" mixed media on book cover

this is a piece i completed yesterday for an upcoming publication. it was so much fun to make and once i got over the hump of moving things around and not knowing exactly where i was going with it then i couldn't put it down until it was finished.

it's the last day of summer break! i told the kids we can do anything they want after a quick trip to the post office this morning. as much as i am dreading that first week when the house seems so quiet and lonely i am very much ready to get back to work in the studio.


  1. this is great ~ i love the spiral! know what you mean about the hump!
    happy last day of hols :)

  2. oooh, i love the spiral as well! this is definitely one of my favorites. : )

  3. Just sensational. Love the way the spiral brings the eye to the foam made out of lined paper (sexy!) and the little flags on the ship lines (what ARE they called??!!). Clever gal!

  4. Your work is so gorgeous, Hollie. I love everything about it. :wub:

  5. i think it's called bunting, right? i'm not sure. "little ship flags" works just as well. :p

    thank you kora!! i was flipping through your site last week and i can honestly say ditto. <3
