I could not be any happier with these two paintings! When I started out I wanted to represent light and color connected together in a much more blended, organic, way than that of a kaleidoscope. I thought rainbow and reflection, like holiday lights or flowers in a garden in front of the sun viewed through an unclear lens. I think all that came through. They remind me of those things, but also nebulae and dye colored microbes or cell structure viewed under a microscope. These are acrylic and ink over metallic acrylic. The subsurface is plaster impression on canvas.
Leaves often remind me of glass beads. I’ve always loved the way light filters through glass. When the light is fullest I love to look up through the canopy and watch the light dance through the leaves. Those two thoughts fused to create these two landscapes. I’m going to call them Light Dance 1 & 2.

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”
