Jacqueline Sullivan Classes

Roman Rhapsody - translucent collage
Reminisce - Heart Detail
Reminisce
I don't have computer access at home right now, so I haven't been able to post as soon as I would like. I had a wonderful time taking 2 classes with Jacqueline Sullivan. It was a lot of fun and I learned some new techniques. The green collage is pretty good size, but I was determined to alter these paper-mache half-hearts. I used family photos on that piece. Hope you like them!

these are really cool, Karen...I like the 3-D result with the heart and of course anytime one uses family photos...it makes it a real family memory. Nice job...glad you had a great time in class and that you now have computer access once again.

Great Work Karen. I loved her classes. Was her husband there to help out?

I know you've wanted to take classes with JS for a long time. I'm glad to see you were finally able to do so. I really like the effect you got on the green heart.

Like them? I LOVE them!!! These are beautiful, especially the heart one. Wowza Karen! I keep looking at the enlarged photo of this heart piece, and it takes my breath away.

I love the muted colors, the images, the tiles, the texture, the lace, the composition, and the depth. Also the use of the dimensional heart. I do believe this is one of your very best, most impressive art works. Kudos to you. I wish I could've watched you create this amazing piece.

Now I'm doubly bummed that I couldn't take any of JS workshops. I really should order that CD of hers, and maybe I can take a workshop of hers sometime in the future.

Karen- this work you've done lately is all stunning- the textured paper- the chunky pages, the metal books! I can't decide which I like best!
