As I was playing around with several pieces last night I realized I don't share very often the images of my artwork especially the "works in progress" and very little of my completed works. Thoses that really know me also know why I don't, but that's another story for another time and place. It was late and the house was quiet as I worked on several different surfaces building up layers for my backgrounds. The piece above is acrylics in some of my favorite Golden colors (Naples Yellow Hue mixed with Green Gold, Ultramarine Blue, Pyrrole Red and the must have use with everything, Titanium White) on Claybord, which I have used for quiet some time and love how you can do so many things with it. Before this piece is finished it will have many, many layers of paint + crayon + colored pencil + charcoal pencil + china markers + who knows what else will find its way into the picture. Then you throw in a little scratching with a wire brush or sandpaper for distressing. Somewhere in all the mix will be my own hand drawings and or photos, then more layers of paint, gel mediums and sealers.
Off to take care of the business side of this creative business, then it is back to the fun stuff above! More "works in progress" coming soon!
