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.
I love how when you’re creating abstract art your current mood and emotions flow effortlessly onto the canvas. This piece was created by layering acrylics, vintage papers and inks. Visually this abstract may seem chaotic but for me it’s about emotions and letting go. The original painting and digital download is available for purchase at my Etsy Shop .
I was in the mood for pastels today. Layers of vintage book pages, the blending of soft pinks with bold blues and a touch of ink created this very dream-like, mixed-media painting. The original painting and high resolution digital download is available for purchase at my Etsy Shop.
22×28 painting. Acrylics and vintage paper on gallery canvas.
I always use words/vintage book pages as the foundation of my art – often times, covering up most of the words with paint. To me, life’s message is most present in the abstraction, absence of words. These abstractions are my guide to seeing, understanding and living life. This is my art.
