This image is 9x12. It is one of a series reminding me of visits to Spain and particularly to the Alhambra in Granada. I had three strips of old watercolors that I pieced together and then added the collage half moons from other pieces . I then had the idea of the bubbles . There is actually a building in the Alhambra whose columns has lots of circles. More to come on this series.
This is number one of three collages to be shown together . Each one is 8x10. I will be posting the other two to be seen better. I used cardboard, tissue and part of a net from a potato sack I got at the grocery. I continue to produce these paintings which always remind me of underwater scenes or are symbols as my life in the tropics. Anyway, I had lots of fun creating this series.
This series, number two of Reflections is 24x28. The method was the same as Reflections One, collage. There is a painting underneath which was used as inspiration to use part of it, the black lines and then I collaged parts of paintings which have similar colors or fitted what I was trying to do. I have also used very small pieces of white paper left over from cutting the sides of sheets used for cards.Hope this makes sense.
This is a series called Reflections, A New Day. The painting is 15x22.The painting has several layers. It waas done two paintings one on top of the other using only only part of each image from each painting and glued one to the other. Then I collaged the accents from parts of paintings I had.I am finding that I like collage work more and more. It combines my skills and works well for me.
This is a 15x11 mixed media work. It was done wet in wet. Then, colors added. It is part of a series of floaters. Am getting ready for a one person show in December. Have to have at least 30 paintings which I have.Am working in series.
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.
