New Discoveries

 This painting has gone many transformations, but essentially it started with a wet in wet background in watercolors. Then I created some space divisions and applied pastel to come areas. Finally I made more zigzag lines with white pastel and colored some other areas.

Flowers From The Heart

This painting was actually ink blots at the beginning. I worked with some mixed media and deveoped the image. After I saw it on the photo, I thought it looked like a bouquet of flowers.

I put together two panels of old watercolors and glued them together. There was already some color on the panels. I worked on it with various media and then glued the bottonns on and the string which I painted while is was glued.

Striking Gold Again

Another gold moment. Many layers of paint went into this. Started by putting modeling paste  on top and imprinting buttons, etc. Then I gave it a layer of gold leaf and then painted several layers of acrylics. Finally decided to paste a layer of mesh.

Another Golden Moment

It was gold time in my studio. Got out my gold leaf and painted it over a watercolor surface. I added the usual touched of acrylics and ink. Also rubbed some gold leaf. Can't deny my Spanih heritage.


 This painting is a collage which I did for my class . I started with two piees of watercolor paper and glued them together. Then I  put gold leaf on the sides and painted cardboard in metallic gold. After looking at it a day or two I added accents in ink and pastel.

Walls of Ancient City

 This painting is 14x14 . It was a joy to paint this mixed media work and am showing today to my experimental art class. What joy to teach and paint

Many Wishes by Silvia Williams

 I had a lot of fun painting these three panels which were done separately in mixed media. I have been teaching a class in experimental art and our second class is on pouring liquid media on paper. I thought the panels went well together althugh they were done as paintings with no idea of them making a larger painting. I will now frame it in a 16x20 format. I am really enjoying teaching watermedia. .
