Looks as if there is a bird looking down at a pond. This was a 6x6 wrapped around canvas covered with cracklingpaste thick in some areas and thin in others. The paint cracks as it dries and then a pouring of watery acrylic paint was poured. What is your opinion? Or is the bird looking down on a city?
This is part of a series of three paintings on wrapped around canvas 6x6 . I glued a sheet of tissue paper the size of the painting over the surface of the canvas. There was already pigment on the canvas. When dried I accented the colors.
This painting was in my bin for two or three years. When a dear friend came over, we got to looking at old paintings and I thought i would refurbish the painting. I spread it with crackling paste and faste it dried I pour layers or acrylics and inks. Reminded me of rushing water.?

This painting is in multi media collage . I had the wet in wet background and started pasting different materials such as rice paper, vegetable mesh and wax paper. I then poured some inks on it. I began to see some shapes that reminded me of irises. I then added some colors with watercolors and acrylics.

I am proud of this mixed media painting. I did it to demo in my class on experimental art, but had the mat and frame and is already on my wall.
I recently sold three paintings, one framed abstract, at a Festival. Am encouraged.

Here I am yesterday afternoon at the Laurel Ridge Country Club doing my thing. Quik Draw is designed to raise money for art programs in the school system. There were 50 artists invited to participate. After we work on a painting for an hour there is anauction. There is also a part in which you bring a painting already done and ready as you see to my left on the photo and there is a silent auction for these paintings. People bid on a starting bid that the artist sets up. It is a fun event the public and members of the club are invited at $50 a peerson to stay for dinner. I will find out at a later day whether the painting was bid on.
