“Quiet Place” 12″ x 12″
I love playing in new mediums! While I spend most of my time painting with acrylics, which are super versatile. I love oil mixed with cold wax medium. When using these paints I move away from brushes and use palette knives, scrapers, brayers, and my favorite tool my fingers! I have a greater since of freedom, play and experimentation with these paintings. I build up the paint more intuitively and don’t really see this direction it’s going until mid way through. The painting speaks to me and I bring the vision forth. This pieces are done on a cradled birch board. The edges are three-quarters inch deep.
The first piece ” Quiet Place” contains a solitary tree. It’s a beautiful meadow with blue skies and spring flowers. It is a great thinking spot.
“Angel Rising” 12″ x 12″
Angel Rising is the perfect balance between fire and ice, warm and cool, earth and air.
This piece is a work in progress. It evokes classical renaissance art. Think Michangelo!
Let me know what you think of this medium and style of painting. Thanks for taking a look!
