Mixed media with watercolor

Okay, I'm a bad blogger. Nearly two months of posting nothing; I have no excuses. A lot has been going on, and I'll try to get caught up with posting it here in the next few weeks, if not days.
To tell the truth, I've been pretty active on my Facebook page, on Twitter and most recently I've joined Instagram. So I guess that's why I'm behind here.

Here's the first catch-up item.
Tracy Miller Gallery in Manitou Springs, Colorado is having a holiday show called "100 for $100", a title that's self explanatory. The idea is for represented artists to show work that is available for that price. I decided to use 5 by 7 inches drawings which I scanned and printed on a laser scanner on 140 lb Arches watercolor paper. I then added watercolor to the printed images. The piece is attached to museum board and that is attached to wood 6 by 8 inches. Below are images of the pieces.

The show runs from November 29 through December 31.

This photo shows the "Bull" piece on the wall, to give it some context and scale.
