Expressions of #Fall Through #Glass – #Acrylic #Painting

Fall never ceases to amaze me. So much about this time and the beginning of renewal for nature connects with me. This is a piece I’ve been working on for quite some time. It is an20181005_163353 acrylic, acrylic skin, gel medium, glass bead gel, fluid acrylic layers, on canvas. This won’t stay in this space, in fact in many ways it is a test for the piece I want to make for this area. I love the way the shapes move into each other, a stained glass puzzle that won’t stay still. .I love the geometric form and the fall colors and the mix of textures, but the piece I want to build for this spot will need to pull a bit more from the Art Deco period. Much like this piece. I’ll need to make at least three more acrylic skin sheets in order to do that. I love making them so that isn’t such a tall order.

Mystical #Myth #Monoprint #Horses

These were so much fun for me to do! The two pieces are a continuation of the mystical creatures series I started last year.  It started with a seadragon monoprint and then a mystical seahorse monoprint. Now a unicorn and a winged horse. I still want to paint a griffin, but I’ve also thought about adding the Sphinx, Cerberus, and a hydra to the collection. So many choices!

This is a set that is best viewed in person. Photos just don’t do them justice. It was inspired by footage of the wildfires in California this year, specifically a garden with roses on fire. Not something I’d want to happen to anyone, but it was a great inspiration for these paintings. I began with a textured surface and then a metallic base background in silver. Then I used acrylic and ink, in red, yellow, and orange layers, to build the roses and flames.

#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”
