Egyptian Ruins – mixed media abstract art

If you know me, you know that I have a love for Egypt.  I have a love for ancient history and Egypt is, by far, the epitome of all things ancient.  As with most of my paintings, they begin with a base, layers and layers of vintage papers.  These papers not only add massive texture to the piece, but implant ‘history’, to an otherwise new work of art.

I am a frequent shopper of antique stores and on one of my outings, I came across a massive, vintage book on Egypt.  To most, this book would be an awesome display piece on their coffee table but to me…uh, I like to re-purpose things, so I ripped out some pages and embedded them into my new painting…

Love Letters – mixed media abstract collage art

Title:  Love Letters

I’m beginning to think that red is my color of choice!  No doubt, my past few paintings have been heavily focused on red. This smaller piece (16″ x 20″) was created using vintage papers and acrylics on gallery canvas.  Available for purchase on Etsy.

The Last Circus 36″ x 36″ Acrylic Abstract, Mixed-Media Painting

This is why I love abstract painting! You are free to go wherever your mind takes you. This unfinished painting sat untouched for months but once I got my new art space set up, I added layers upon layers, without a second thought. THAT, is abstract art. Not thinking, but creating.4

Poison Mixed-Media Acylics and Paper

I’ll be honest, I struggled with this painting for quite some time. It had been sitting, unfinished for a few months when I finally came back to it. I ripped off the original layers only to add more layers and layers….about 5 to be exact! I’m pretty pleased with the outcome. The finished piece combines acrylics, oil pastels and vintage papers.
