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.
