Trying Out Techniques

I love to see how different surfaces take techniques and I hadn't played with Delight very much. So in the spirit of the season, I rolled out Delight and used my Halloween cookie cutters to make little skulls.


Skull cookie cutters
Micro Beads
Curry powder

Left to right: Skull coated with polymer medium followed by a wash of Quinacridone Nickol Azo Gold when dry. My favorite. Clear glitter with typewriter keys, black with a metallic pearl rub, and burnt umber with curry powdered applied while wet. Now, I have to run to the fabric store. I think collars out of netting would be cool.

Part of being an artist is being a mad scientist.

Altared Wine

This painting, Altared Wine, when through so many versions before I finally finished it. Hopefully a wine lover will fall madly in love with it.

Sometimes it is the piece that sets the pace of completion and not the artist.

With New Loves, Old Ones Are Forgotten

This piece, With New Loves, Old Ones Are Forgotten, used a different palette than I normally use. It currently resides in Mexico.

New in the Studio

I always try and start work on several pieces because nothing in more boring than watching paint dry. So between preparing for classes/workshops and shows there are always multiple pieces to throw paint at and figure out the story that the painting is trying to reveal. This is my favorite time in the evolution of a painting.
