Somethings Happenin Here

...what it is ain't exactly clear" Buffalo Springfield's song runs through my mind. Design. Color. Mixed Media (wood, gesso, acrylic, paper gel gloss medium, charcoal, pencil, ink) I had a blast creating this art. Perhaps you may notice the implementation of similar design elements in my recent pieces, "Linger", "Cupcake in the City" and "Cup full of Candlelight". I pull images or childlike design simplicities from memory. I used a similar technique on my L.I.F.E. door.

Yesterday's post included one view of my studio. Here on the other side of my studio, working in a less frequent method I kept wanting to have the wood up and vertical like I am accustomed to working on my easel, but my fluid acrylics needed to be evolving and drying flat.

Making art can be hazardous to your health. I wear protective gloves when working with pastel. Working in acrylic with brushes, I did not. While using gloss medium my hand had an allergic reaction. So looks like I need the gloves here too.

Thank you Elizabeth. Now that I am in a private studio with adequate incubation time, I feel more free to "play" and experiment. I woke up at 4 am to create another work of art in this medium. Perhaps my tagline will have to change, We shall see. In my Etsy store I used "A Visual Journey". I have always liked the word journey.
