Full Bloom, Tulips, mixed media, impasto painting

"Full Bloom"

Besides the wonderful contrast in value and color, this painting has thick impasto with added gems for a little sparkle from different angles of view!

News Event:  I will be in Sebring for an art show, and will have some prices reduced for the show!  (Lake Placid Art and Fine Crafts Show, on Hwy 27 at the Agri-civic center, just North of Hwy 98)

Honestly, I have not been so inspired in years. This new series of adding found objects, and/or using modeling paste and other materials to build up the texture is challenging and creates so many unique and interesting effects. I think I have finished close to 20 paintings in the last 3 months! Some of them have been sitting around unfinished for over a year!

Eternal Joy, angel, butterflies, mixed media painting

"Eternal Joy"

        This is inspired from a small painting I did years ago called "Endless Song".  This one is less abstract, and the colors are lighter.  I used thick gesso to build up the hair, wings, and plants for an impasto feel.  Also added beads to the headband and the belt, as well as on the gown.  The 3 metal butterflies were the most fun, because they fit so well with the colors I had already painted.  It is like a nice surprise when you see them. Adding a little iridescent paint on the wings, gown and above the head gives it a nice shimmer. When the painting is viewed at different angles, some things really catch your eye.
      Can't explain how tickled I was when I added the extras, I felt like a kid.  I played with  many combinations until finally I was satisfied with this layout.  The butterflies actually made me laugh!
