Mrs. Dashwood


Mrs. Dashwood - she was painted for a charity project I took on to support a local pet orphanage. Each of the paintings in the series was one of these folk art cats with either a collaged background or an abstract painted background. Each one was named for a cultural or literary figure. Mrs. Dashwood came from a Jane Austin novel. The background is scrapbooking paper, tissue paper and I think some of my hand made paper. Some of the others also included paper I had marbled for a college project many many years ago.
