Beneath the Surface, is another mixed media painting where again I have been having fun with repetition of movement and texture. This time there are varying shades of dark blue hues beneath the surface of white molding paste. We all have a lot going on “beneath the surface.”
Lighten Up, triptych 6″ x “6 x 1″d each equaling 18 inches long. It’s been such a long time since I have painted-I’ve been so busy since I am now in charge of exhibitions at the Jamestown Arts Center, RI. I’ve been dreaming about these paintings for so long, I needed to create them before they drove me batty. The canvases have been stained with black tea and then covered with a frosting like substance-light molding paste. The repetition of the motion with my fingers is very meditative and relaxing.
