Introducing my mini "Samplers" - little mixed media studies for larger works in progress. These two pieces are using pages from my childhood bird book that began to fall apart a few years ago and had been waiting for a new purpose - now found in my new series "Unbound". These pieces started as acrylic textural studies, then found new life with oil paints, cold wax, book pages, monoprint pages, and fibers. I hope you enjoy "Soaring" and "Finding My Place", the first two in this new little series.
