Abundance Lesson

Few things are more satisfying for an artist than a well executed redo. I had this abstract piece called Abundance for sometime and ironically, it was lacking. So I added a blue jay and some sky and it all came together. Focal point. It now has one. Focus. I believe I now have more. Synergy. The  whole is now greater than the simple sum of its parts. Hasn't that always been the lesson of abundance?

30x30x30 Challenge: Days 19 thru 23

5 Days of work equals 5 new pieces! 2 figures, 1 face and 2 landscapes. I was playing around with painting and drawing on photo transfers and with painting and drawing on a fabric print of a past painting...just for fun. I really like how the messed up photo transfer with paint became the piece called the Beach. The Three Sisters goes out as homage to my Mom and my 2 Aunts to honor the beautiful little girls that they were! Click on each image to learn more about what went into them.

Land Divided

Land Divided started out as an experiment in using an old broken photo into a patchworked collaged landscape painting. It was a struggle trying to find the balancing point between it being a distraction and losing the photo entirely. Up close this piece is quite abstracted but from far it really takes on the look of a landscape.
