Working With Nature
The past few weeks I've been helping a client create "paintings" out of sand and seashells. We have completed 9 small 5x7s, six 16x20s and two 8x20s. Recreating the feel of the beach has been fun and relaxing.
My Newest Work
The technique I used in this series of paintings was done by layering tissue paper onto the canvas with a base color of red acrylic acting as my glue. This creates a wonderful texture. After this layer dries I start to build colors on top of the base using green-gold, unbleached titanium white, yellow ocher, burnt siena and metallic gold and copper. I paint the subject on top of this abstract background. By keeping the subject simple and using the same colors as the background the paintings take on a spiritual effect.
All these paintings are now on display at my studio.
