This past weekend I visited Alley Art Studio, where Dayna Collins mixes her media and artistically expresses her motto: Be Bold. Dayna's studio was open to the public last Sat. and Sun. as part of the Visual Artist Studio Tour (VAST). Her studio itself is an artistic wonder. There are paintings on the walls, mixed media pieces, and collection after collection of curiosities such as vintage hose nozzles, doll heads, and one of my favorites, a vignette of used watercolor sets arranged on a wall.
Some of Dana's art was available for sale -- her Curious Elements. I've admired them for awhile, and now own these two pieces:
Curious Elements by Dayna Collins
Now I need to find a special place to display them!
