This is a square painting 12x12.It is multimedia. I often paint to music and music remains one of my loves. I can't fail to listen to music everyday. It calms me and excites me and it is perfect to play it while painting. Sometimes it does not sing, that is , sometimes it is hard to get an image one likes, but in this case, I was able to crop and get this image.
This painting took some time to get finished. I put layers of watercolor, acrylic and inks. I let the water move as it would. Then I placed some wax paper in the wet areas and made the lines. Measures 32x7 I may combine this with more fluid watercolors at bottom or on sides or leave it as is.

This painting is 10x10. It is a mixed media work. The process is hard to explain, but it started with a watercolor wash. I then kept adding other media and finally with my signature art favorite, the line, I finished it. Price $125. PayPal may be used.

This painting is a modified version of one already posted, but I like this version better. The dimensions of the painting have changed to a 12x10. The title arose from seen a figure that looks to be sort of wrapped in the flowers. Media used was watercolor with some diluted acrylics. Pay through PayPal if interested in purchasing, price is $250.

The beautiful weather in these parts of Western North Carolina are absolutely gorgeous. I have a garden with beautiful flowers and a two butterfly trees. The birds and the butterflies are constantly hovering over these trees and it is beautiful to see the colors of both the butterflies and the birds. Thus the ecstasy the scene provokes.

Well, here I am with my painting at the recent exhibit in Black Mtn. I truly love that painting. Am afraid I made a goof and misnamed the media. I should have entered the watermedia category, but labeled it mixed media. I suppose I still don't have the art jargon quite straight. Or maybe they don't. To me, mixing media means using what was used here, watercolors, acrylics and some ink. It apparently means something else to others which is when you collage stuff and use the three medias. Live and learn(if ever).
This is a picture that was in the Mountaineer Newspaper of three women who participated in a recent juried show.My two friends got awards and I got juried in too which was good . The bottom picture is yours truly and I was just sort of kidding around. I should say the top painting is mine.I had another one juried in and will blog it. It is hard not to get a blob of light in the picture, but I guess we all know what it is like. The reception was a lot of fun and there were a lot of good paintings.
