Red Dress - Study

This is just a study I was playing around with - it is watercolor/gouache over an old acrylic/mixed abstract. Interesting combination. I wanted to see if the watercolor mixture would cover the acrylic - it does and also wipes off for interesting effects. I think I will play some more with this combination - lord knows I have a ton of unresolved abstracts to work with.

What I am working towards is the figure is actually part of the background - I am getting closer to what I envision but I am not there yet - also my figures need more work/study.

Illustration Friday - Phobia

I HATE spiders. Without my contacts or glass I can't see beyond my nose but I can see a spider clear across the room - go figure! Illustration Friday theme - Phobia - yea I guess I have a phobia for spiders.

Fog Fragment - Mixed Media Abstract

This is a small painting 4X12 inches but I see it matted in a wide 5 inch or bigger mat. I find it very intriguing.

Illustration Friday - Change

Illustration Friday - Change. In this world of plastic surgery - who knew Mona would go under the knife. Let's see - botox, eye lift, chin and cheek implants and of course a new nose - I wonder about the boobs!!!

This illustration is part digital and part good old fashion collage and a lot of fun to make.

Figure Study

I thought I would just play with some watercolor on sketch paper. I want to play with the figure, learn something and maybe have some fun - no pressure. Painted this today - just a quick study - about 20 minutes.

I always feel I want to reinvent myself with my art.

New Mixed Media Collage

Finished this collage/mixed media painting today. It measures 10X14 inches. I decided to make a new blog for my wire and bead jewelry and just use this blog for my art work.
