Caught in a Net

This is a square painting 6x6. It is framed in black and the background is white. I glued in the collaged pieces beginning with tissue paper. Then I placed some rice paper that had been died on top of the tissue and added paint to the top. I also glued in mesh that come from a bag of oranges. Later I decided to glue on an accent piece of paper with lines to complete the work.
I will soon start giving classes in contemporary mixed media experimental work using a varieity of papers, etc.

Snow Day Series

I already had this long sheet of watercolor that I played with giving it many colors, blue mostly. I then thought about adding colored inks and then the white. It reminded of a tree or a branch of one-a tree at home, of course, as there is no color out there except brown. Had fun painting it.

A Happy Day

Despite a terrible snow storm and very cold temps, I felt happy to be warm inside and to be able to paint without rushing. This painting measures 18x24 matted. I enjoy seing the painting evolve. I started with wet in wet as usual. After several layers , I dried it. Then I started to see shapes in it and I thought it needed more punch. I then layer on some pastels and then finished it with ink lines.
