The Farmington Woman’s Club Craft and Pie Fair was another great success this year! Lots of art, handmade products, in addition to regular crafts. They had a variety of homemade holiday pies for sale and sold out by eleven! Below are some of the photos I took of the day. Continue reading “#Farmington #Craft #Fair Recap/ #Photos”

Move Over Monday #Monoprints

img200

These free form monoprints are more developed than many of my monoprints. They are typically much more abstract. I’ve gone back and added watercolor, acrylic paint, and oil pastel to enhance form, composition, and color many times, so the original prints aren’t seen, except in the background here and there.

Mid #Summer #MonoPrints

This set of monoprints started out in acrylic, printmaking ink, or iridescent watercolor. I added ink, pastels, and additional watercolors to them to flesh them out. Visit the other monoprinting tabs to see more. Hope you enjoy the gallery below! Continue reading “Mid #Summer #MonoPrints”

#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”

Mystical #Myth #Monoprint #Seahorse

I’m in place where a familiar theme begins to emerge in pieces I’m working on. It started with the seadragon monoprint and now has manifested in this acrylic monoprint of a mystical seahorse. I’m thinking of creating a unicorn, winged horse, and griffin. We’ll see where that goes; I’m having so much fun making these I can hardly wait to start the next one!

More Marvelous #MonoPrints

These are loose, abstract, free form monoprints that as I looked them I saw more developed potential and worked them into a more complex composition. I have gone back and added watercolor, acrylic paint, and oil pastel to enhance form, composition, and color. Continue reading “More Marvelous #MonoPrints”

Two Wild #Acrylic #Nature #Paintings

It is feeling like spring here in NH, though we are actually in the middle of winter. Temps are creeping up during the day to fifty or sixty degrees in most places. A false spring. These two landscape paintings have been sitting around for a bit with the under painting work done. I really wasn’t sure where I wanted to go to finalize them. One is a little more clear as I see it being later in the day and the hazy version I imagine in early morning with lifting fog. I’m going to call these False Spring Morning & False Spring Afternoon.

Two Vivid #Landscape #Paintings

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.

#Glass #Photography

Glass has a vibrant soul. I love looking at colored glass. I like staging, lighting, and photographing it to see what you can bring out. Light it differently or put in in a different location and it takes on other qualities that were not present in the first location. Continue reading “#Glass #Photography”
