Wow. It's been way too long since I last posted. I'll try to fix that little problem.

Pictured above is my latest assemblage piece, titled, "Sanctuary." It's a private commission and I'm happy with the way it turned out.

I learned a few things along the way with this particular assemblage. The next one will be a little easier than this one was, I think.

I used a whole variety of bits and pieces for "Sanctuary." All pieces found at my "secret" junk location. ;) Let's see, I used a wooden box that had a half moon already carved out of the top; a little metal mold that I used for the top of the "nicho." I found a pair of metal humming birds that I put under that; two little birds from who knows what, a plastic biblical figure that I placed inside the mold, a couple of wooden branches for either side and a Mexican bingo card with a tree on it for the background.

All in all, a pretty fun piece to do.
