Other Worlds

"Other Worlds"
15" x 9"
Watercolor on paper
There are worlds where the lowly feather is looked upon with wonder and awe. 

I cut out waxed paper shapes: feathers, circles, crescents, leaves, and arranged them on the saturated watercolor paper, then brushed on deep values of paint.  It didn't go under the waxed paper, which had become saturated and flimpy.  

I immediately covered the whole thing with plastic wrap and squooshed it where I wanted wrinkles.  I put a magazine on top of the plastic wrap to weight it slightly. Don't use anything of value, it could absorb paint. Then put the whole thing on a level shelf in the deep freeze. (remember it's on a cookie sheet) Or outside if you have below zero, not just below freezing, temperatures.

Now go away.  Forget about it for a day or so.  You won't see my next installment until the day after Christmas.  So go eat some fruitcake, drink some egg nog,  or staple mistletoe wherever you plan to spend the next couple of days.

I mean it, don't peek or peel up that plastic wrap.  Santa's watching.  


Frozen Beneath

"Frozen Beneath"
6" x 6"
Acrylic on canvas
As if it's been "Frozen Beneath" and bulging against its stringy captors, this orb has nowhere to go, except to its new home.  

My son and his intended closed on their new home today and this series will move in with them.  Once again, metallic paint and wrinkled plastic have helped me to capture this random smattering.

This image can be seen on Dailypaintworks.com, but is already spoken for.

Thanks for having a look today.

Moon Fingers

"Moon Fingers"
11" x  22"
Acrylic on panel 
Moon Fingers was a commission for a couple who wanted these colors, this texture and size.  I scooped up the ingredients, folded in a dollop of love, and let 'er rip!
This piece is not as "happenstantial" as it might appear; given the randomness of the process. Saran wrinkles surrounded a waxed paper orb. Salt peppered texture over its face, and other than that, it was a piece of cake.  Or cheese. 
Moon Fingers can be seen on Dailypaintworks.com in my gallery there/here.  This piece, however, is already being loved and cared-for. Don't go lookin' to buy it. But I will be happy to create a cousin or sibling for you.  Just not an identical twin. 


12" x 36"
Acarylic on wrapped canvas
Not so long ago, nor that far away, a smidge of blue collided with a skosh of yellow. Red crept in from a corner and wrinkled, stretched, and cosmically diverged into a unique realm.  "Intrinsic" was born.

I bought a variety of canvases in unusual sizes. This one just begged to be cosmic in nature. I used my acrylics with a few watecolor techniques and finished with colored pencil details. Wow, this one was fun!

This painting is listed with, and for sale through a Daily Paintworks Auction. Or via Paypal on that site.
