Mixed Media Collage

Worked on this painting today - the collage in this is just newspaper and other papers in the background - the figure is painted on top in acrylic. I am trying to integrate the figure with the background. Still needs work and experimentation.

Mixed Media Collage

Worked on "real" painting today. This is a mixed media collage - watercolor paper, acrylic, newspaper, gesso, oil pastel, etc.

Stained Glass Girl - Digital Image

In my unending quest to learn about Photoshop I found a great website - Photoshop TV. Each Monday they have a new show with Photoshop tips. This was one I learned last week - using the "blend if" sliders on layers.

Mixed Media Collage

Feeling kind of down today - thought I'd do some painting. Rather than painting something I can sell and make money on ebay I started playing around with acrylic and collage. I really like this piece - it measures 9 1/2 X 11 1/2 inches and it is on watercolor paper. It has some gold metallic paint I just bought - it doesn't show up in the picture. Newspaper collaged in the background. I really need to paint some stuff for ebay.

Illustration Friday - Monster

This is my entry for monster - digital image.

A Walk In The Park - Digital Image

Created this image last night. I saw a poster similar to this and wanted to try my version. I bought a new Photoshop book - "Blending Modes Cookbook" and I have been playing with blending modes - something I had no clue about before the book.

Watercolor - Boat

Just finished this watercolor of a boat tied up at Pt. Pleasant, NJ. I paint watercolors to sell on Ebay. My passion is painting abstracts or figures but I also need to pay the bills!

New Blog for my Art Projects

I have decided to create this second blog for just art/art related topics and keep my first blog "The View From Here" for Tarot topics. I thought about this for awhile and I think it will be less confusing for me.

My art consists of mixed media paintings, watercolor, collage and digital art. I will be posting all types of work here.
