If you've been following me on Instagram, you know that I've become a little obsessed with making mandalas as of late. What started as an attempt to bring more "zen" into my life has resulted in a whole series of new work!
Here's a peek of what I've been up to...
(The piece above is still a work in progress, but I love where it's going)
(And the piece above was done using a half-interesting and unfinished painting I found in one of my drawers. LOVE making lemonade out of lemons!)
If you'd like to follow along and see more mandalas as they are made, you can follow me on Instagram. xoxo
193, mixed media on vintage book cover, 8 x 10 inches, 2015
I wrote a great big blog post the other night. It was chock full of new art and news, and one *minor* tweak before I hit "publish" sent the spinning rainbow of dread whirling, and boom! Great Big Art Post was gone. I seriously almost cried.
So if you are interested in my recent makings (and photographs) please stop by my Instagram. It's so easy to post new work there, I'm having to remind myself that I still have this blog where I can share, too. :)
Here are some close-ups of 193, I really love the wonky houses and the use of paint over regular old scotch tape.
Another in my Terrarium series, print is available here. I love the colors in this one, especially the red and aqua against the orchid-y purple.
Speaking of the color "orchid" ("Radiant Orchid" being a past Pantone Color of the Year) how are you feeling about this year's color, "Marsala"? I have to admit it is not my favorite. Maybe I'll try to embrace it and see how it goes.
The Truth About Flying Fish, collage on panel, 8x10", 2015
Here's a sweet collage I made for Papirmass' and Brwnpaperbag's Collage Contest… I was paired up with talented Greek artist Georgia Grigoriadou for a materials exchange (I am a sucker for a materials exchange!) and I had a lot of fun with it, despite the thread-sticking-to-my-glue-crusted-fingers issue.
