Friendships are being made…it’s just so cool.

Materials Used: 140lb. watercolor paper, Gloss medium, tack iron, gesso textured brown lunch bags, stained tissue paper, old book pages, resist National Geographic magazine papers, painted drawing paper, gesture marks, glazing medium sealed with a UV satin Varnish.

Meaning behind the art: I wasn’t going to create a piece for this week…lots going on. Then I found myself with nothing to do in the afternoon. I thought why not? Go make a piece, got ambitious and start larger 14 x 14 and pulled out papers and had a great time in the flow of it all. When it was finished I knew it was not a piece for sale. It was a piece to explore and experiment with.  It will set on the side for how long I don’t know.   I then remember the two piece I made when I was in Paducah KY…I like the one with the words, The Survivors, on it and I felt that it was more fitting to launch out today.  Being it been 17 years since 9-11.

# 090318-A, "Yellow/Orange Intensity", 8 x 8 collage artwork finished piece with 2” mat all sides, final 12 x 12 ready for a frame of your choice.

Materials Used: 140lb. watercolor paper, gloss medium, Citra Solv sales ad paper from Art Van, painted drawing paper with acrylics, black wax crayon, stamped image, with a final coat of UV Satin Varnish.

Meaning behind the art: I want to say hurry up Fall…but then it seems to last a moment. So, I am thinking about an artist’s date soon in the woods close to my house where a huge Maple Grove is.  When you walk down the path it is so intense with color is almost spiritual scary. A favorite color combo of mine to see and be around is the Gray sky and the color of the leaves, yellow and orange. The cycle continues as we connect the dots with the season upon us.

Meaning behind the art: The colors of brown and blue are always comforting to me. And today felt like a day to be comforted and a day to come into oneself. The image of the tree though distorted spoke to me.  And I decided to use on that one piece of paper.  The faint color blue was present, so I pulled it out more with acrylic paints and painted drawing paper I had made for past collage works.
