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…
Egyptian Ruins is available for purchase at my Etsy store.
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.
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.
Available for purchase at my Etsy store.
For this painting I experimented with glass paints. Since this was my first time trying these out, I only used a small amount. The majority of the painting was created using my go to paints – acrylics. Fire Eye measures 30″ x 40″ and is available for purchase at my Etsy Shop.
