Storm 5

Mixed media on 12x12 wood panel.


Closeup view.

I've been exploring a bit... using the down time of the summer to get to some experiments I've been wanting to play with. This piece involved layers of collage, rice papers, texture mediums and scratching back into the layers. I really enjoyed the process and hope to incoporate more of this kind of layering in my future work.

Horizons Group

Mixed Media on (4) 3.5x3.5 wood blocks.

Still playing with rice paper, dimensional paint and fluid acrylics on wood. I am thinking about enlarging these studies... I love working wet into wet... the way the colours mix and intermingle and create surprises.

Sky Lights


Mixed Media on (4) 3.5x3.5 wood blocks.
For these pieces, I was experimenting with rice paper, dimensional paint, fluid acrylics and salt. I used one of my favourite split complementary colour combinations. ( quin. gold, pthalo blue, turquoise deep and dioxazine violet.)

Monday

Erosion Group


Mixed Media on (3) 5x7 stretched canvases.
I am fascinated with the textures of earthforms. I have alot of fun experimenting with this series. For these pieces I mixed crackle paste, handcast paper, matte gel, rice papers and seed beads to create the earthy textures.

Many Moons Ago Group1

The finished work in progress from the last few posts. This is part of a larger work... each 6x8 canvas can work on its own or as part of a grouping. Each set of four varies in tone although the same pigments were used... it just depends upon how the paints mix and intermingle and create new variegated colours.
