In a effort to push myself out of the style that I am fond of, today’s challenge was flowers in an abstract setting. I was surprised at both the layers of colors and use of mixed paints I used with ease. It turned out even better than I imagined it and only showed me to try outside of my comfort zone. It’s still me with the metallic flair after all. I hope to do more of these in the future.
Continuing on my path of paintings inspired by pieces at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, today’s inspiration is “Clytie” statue by William Henry Rinehart. Putting her greens, greys and silver with her standing in deep thought off right. This piece was a lesson in patience and learning to not overwork the paint.
Following on my electroluminescent vibe, I decided to create a lighthearted whimsical piece that includes recycled wood, wire, EL wire, and heat shrink tubing. I am putting finishing touches on this piece and hope to show off the final product soon. Stay Tuned!
