My artistic endeavors have lead me to creating quite a menagerie of things lately. I've incorported natural things I find on walks into my work. This first photo started off as one of my prints, which I affixed to a canvas and then I added curly birch bark I found on the ground. I finished it off with my new favorite artistic implements–gold and silver sharpie pens. I really love how this evolved.
This photo is of a set of prints I sold last week. I believe these were sent to Australia, if memory serves me correctly. I love the way my black and white drawings look when placed side by side. There is a definite theme going on here... a monochromatic symphony of design.
Three Etsy orders heading to various parts around the globe!
More treasures I've created lately...
And this last piece is a detail shot of a little 6x6 inch square nature collage. Again, I've used nature as my muse by gathering tidbits of fallen leaves and plants that I find when I am out walking around the nature trails and garden paths around the area where I live. I decided to glaze this piece with a shiny glitter paint. I am not sure why. I am not sure it works, but I THINK I like it.
This last piece is my original watercolour that I have affixed to a canvas. I then glazed it with many many layers of acrylic varnish. It's very pretty in person. This photo doesn't quite reveal the effect, but it did turn out so nicely. I am very pleased with the direction my work has taken lately. A lot of small pieces, but they are all very different and all very interesting.
