You will get a sentimental Feeling when you hear Voices singing let's be jolly, Deck the halls with boughs of holly Rocking around the Christmas tree, Have a happy holiday Everyone dancing merrily In the new old-fashioned way.
around the Christmas tree At
the Christmas party hop Mistletoe
hung where you can see Every
couple tries to stop Rocking around the Christmas tree, Let
the Christmas spirit ring Later
we'll have some pumpkin pie And
we'll do some caroling
A diamond shines no brighter than that lovely Christmas star. It shines in all its brilliance; it's seen from near or far. A symbol of the Christ child as He lay upon thehay, It tells to all the waiting world a King was born that day. O Bethlehem Star keep shining - give us faith and hope and love. Keep our thoughts forever turning to the Savior up above. Give us strength and hope and courage to do our best by far And never falter in our faith as we watch that Christmas star.
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
These paintings are fabric collages. Glued onto gallery wrapped canvas. I've always wanted to try fabric instead of paper. The upside is - you can find fabric with fabulous textures and colors.If I wanted to pursue this further, I would dye the fabric myself, which is another whole process all together. The downside is fabric must be cut with scissors, not torn like paper. And I do miss the happy accidents I can get when tearing paper. However, fabric does produce strings from its raw edge. These string make very nice texture.
If I had all the time in the world to paint, I would love to pursue this further. I don't, so I'll just continue to use fabric in my paintings and collages along with paper and paint.
