The GeoTech Fairy!

If any of you have read my complete profile, you know I'm a Sr. Geological Technician. GeoTech's (as we are called) work in the Oil and Gas business. Our jobs are to help our Geologists and Geophyisicts create maps, print logs and keep up the databases in the software we use to create our maps. I wanted to create a digital art piece this week that honored my job. To be honest, I've worked on this piece the last couple of days, not really pleased with the results. And so, after finishing, I'm still not sure if I am pleased. The reason I've called it the GeoTech Fairy, is often I have joked that I will have to get out my GeoTech fairy dust when doing a project. If you haven't noticed by now, I love neutral tones. In fact, my mother and my grandmother (when she was alive) often told me I did not have enough color in my wardrobe. I can't help it. I love browns, grays and blacks. What I see as colors for me , would be copper, bronze, taupe, mustard yellow and aubergine. Although, I do like teal and soft pink. But, for me these are out of the ordinary. So, again, another art piece in earth tones. Actually though, I'm really in awe of artists who are not afraid to use color. Having said this, here is my latest piece. The background is from Playing with Brushes, the Ballerina is from FrenchKissed, Ammonites are from Art-e-ology, Letters, hat, compass and watch are from Scrapbookgraphics, and the rest of the elements are free images. Hope you enjoy!!

  1. Andrea, she's FABULOUS, and your neutral palette is gorgeous! No apologies are necessary for your "being you" and staying in your comfort zone. It's what makes your work so distinct and beautiful! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  2. Beautiful work! I am just learning about digital collage and the exciting! Thanks for inspiring.

  3. Thank you ladies for your inspiring comments! Terri, your comment has inspired me to carry on!!

  4. Such a coooool digital design friend & I LOVEEEE the soft muted colors you work with. It's funny you say that about color because I always feel that I'm afraid to work with vivid color too. But I'm coming to the realization, it's not so much I'm afraid to work with color as it is I just prefer a more muted pallete...I adore your color pallete & your work is amazing. Thanks for sharing it!
