Seaside I and II
8"x10"x2"
Mixed media on cradled panels
$100.00 each

I finally got around to playing with the cradled panels I bought a while back.  I love the hard surface and the boxy look of these panels.  Both are heavily textured, distressed and accented with gold leaf and other collage materials.  The panels are sealed with an acrylic gloss varnish and are ready to hang.  The sides are painted a matte black.

The Way of the Pilgrim

 

The Way of the Pilgrim
30"x24"x1.5"
Mixed media on canvas
I guess, that like most artists, I've accumulated tons of materials that can be incorporated into a painting.  This morning I decided to go through my "stash" and add some of them to this new painting.  Gold leaf and printed rice paper stood out and seemed to be just perfect for this heavily textured canvas.  After making some marks on the canvas to establish the composition, I started to wash in some color.  As I worked, I collaged the gold leaf and the printed paper.  I also decided to add some crackle paste, something that's been sitting on my shelf, but rarely used.  I slowly built up the surface of the painting with layer upon layer of glazed color until I finally decided that the painting was finished.  I sealed the canvas with several coats of acrylic varnish to enhance and bring out all the details that are "hidden" in the many layers of paint.

Untold Story

 

Untold Story
Acrylic on Canvas
30" x 30" x 1.5"
Sold
 
 
I've been going through my files lately and found this painting that was sold last year.  I feel like I need to get back into doing some palette-knife paintings again.  It's a little more difficult working in acrylic than it is with oil, because of the shorter drying time.  But, still worth the effort, I think.

If By Chance

 

If By Chance
36"x30"x1.5"
Acrylic on Canvas

Have I mentioned before that I like to use a lot of texture in my paintings?  Yes, I certainly do! 
"If By Chance" has an almost stucco-like feel and is accented with stenciling and "graffiti". 
I applied several layers of glazes to build up the color but still allow the undertones to show through.

Tuscany Wall Grouping

Tuscany wall grouping
Four 10"x10"x1.5 paintings
Acrylic mixed media on canvas

Here is how all four of my mixed media Tuscany series would look in a grouping.  I had a little problem working with my new Photoshop Elements 10.  Quite a learning curve for me! They've added an awful lot of new options compared to my old Elements 2!  Wish I could have centered the pictures better...I'm sure there must be an easy way to do it, but you get the "picture"!
I worked on a brand new painting today and will blog about it tomorrow.  In the meantime, I need to come up with a good title for it.

Tuscany II

Tuscany II
10"x10"x1.5"
Mixed media on canvas
Purchase Information

I've never been to Italy but a trip through the Tuscan countryside is certainly on my bucket list.  I'll be sure to take my

old Jansen, History of Art, college textbook so that I don't miss a single Michelangelo or Da Vinci!

This painting is one of a series of four pieces that were inspired by the film "Under the Tuscan Sun".  Look carefully at the heavy impasto to see the little surprises that are imbedded in the paint.
