Thanks to my little House Wren who inspired me to create this collaged drawing, which was one of the 10 artworks that won for me the Fellowship. I acknowledge and thank the Kentucky Arts Council for their support of the arts and artists and gladly add the credit they request of us:
In recognition of artistic excellence, Kathleen O’Brien is the recipient of an Al Smith Fellowship Award from the Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, which is supported by state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.

I was going to correct the misspelling in the last post to say "fourth try", but I decided I like the meaning of going forth. one thing that is liberating is to create something just for myself and want to share them here, as I do not put these on my website.

I used some of my Victorian stickers to represent my kids. I never use magazine pictures in my collages, so this was a fun indulgence for me. That's the good red road leading west where they live. I journaled around and around the edges creating a frame.

I created this one to celebrate my daughter and son in law's wedding under the rainbows and stars where they had their first kiss.
