A mixed media collage which reminds me of a rock group, not a musical one, of course. There has been a rock slide around here which kept a major interstate unusuable in certain parts. Just imagining how it may look for an artistic point of view. Measure 15x11.
An 11x15 painting. This is a mixed media from an old wc that didn't work. I painted gesso and molding paste over the colors, ran a comb through and discovered some colors underneath the comb scratchings.
I am posting this backward as I did not realize that I had not posted the first two parts on my blog. I am in Daily Painters of North Carolina and Abstract Daily Painters also. I neglected to blog this one and another piece. So here goes part two.
This complete the triptych series of Brown and Blue. This third one is 9x10. Should be term, the Turn Forward Series. I have through doing many paintings arrived at another crossroads. More paintings will be forthcoming.
This small work is a favorite of mine. I love music and listen to it a great deal. I also play the piano and have a lot of sheet music. I torn the collage paper and decided it would say more with a few notes.
Yhis work went through a lot of washes in various media. I started wet in wet and after it dried, I painted layers of acrylics and watercolors with less water. Then, I thought it needed more color and painted colorful strokes with pastel. I also stamped and used inks.
I love to paint and try to do so every day. I am having immense fun blogging. I love being in touch with so many good artists and seing their art. I learn a lot about painting this way. I especially enjoy participating in the challenges.
