#ArtDeco Inspired #Geometric #Acrylic #Painting

I’ve pointed out before that Stan and I love the look and feel of the Art Deco period. We collect many things from the period and it influences many things about our house and the furnishings. One day I got it into my head that I wanted to create an Art Deco inspired piece for our family room. I knew I wanted it to be geometric, to be somewhat reflective, and I knew I also wanted to use acrylic skins for parts of it. After working on it for over a year off and on it is finally done. I’m calling this painting “Building Veiled Geometry.” Continue reading “#ArtDeco Inspired #Geometric #Acrylic #Painting”

More #Art-Folding Screen With Vivid #CrystallinePaper Inserts

p1040097

I’ve almost finished working on the folding screen with crystalline paper inserts. We found the screen at a yard sale for next to nothing and I thought I could do something interesting for the inserts. I made some crystalline papers for other projects and decided I’d give them a try for the screen. The result is stunning. Even in fairly low light the colors come through. Below are two of the inserts. Each one is different and has a personality all its own. Continue reading “More #Art-Folding Screen With Vivid #CrystallinePaper Inserts”

Seven More #MixedMedia #Collage #Art Pieces

P1020908

These are all mixed media collages. Most have a mix of acrylic, watercolor, and various papers that make up the final piece. The platters and the bowl were items that were hideous in their natural commercial forms and had outlived usefulness, but I decided to  give them new lives as art. Each of these took some time as I made some of the papers that would become part of the pieces for the collage. Continue reading “Seven More #MixedMedia #Collage #Art Pieces”

January 2016 #Collage, #MixedMedia & #Painting

P1020855

I didn’t have a singular focus for my art in early 2016. The first is a mixed media still life that I love. The second is a piece I call “looking through the glacier” that I’d been working on for a while. The third and fourth are a pair of crazy collages. The last is a painting I call “forest edge on fire,”which happens to be my favorite of this bunch. Continue reading “January 2016 #Collage, #MixedMedia & #Painting”

Completed #Paintings From The End Of 2015

P1020778

I finished all of these at the end 2015. I put them on Facebook, but didn’t put them on the site or through Twitter. All are acrylic paintings, but the red abstracts and the leaf collage incorporate mixed media elements as well.   Continue reading “Completed #Paintings From The End Of 2015”

More Finished #Collage #Art!

 

An eclectic mix of different things. The first is a small acrylic painting. I’m fond of this one. The second is a set, which is acrylic and collage with both paper and tissue paper. The third is a mixed media collage; I was trying to draw out whimsy, which is really hard for me. The fourth is a paper collage with acrylic paint as a background and as accent. I’m partial to this one too. The fifth is crazy piece I was trying to convey anger and frustration. Fortunately, a fair amount of sadness comes through, which makes it even more haunting.
