I've been working on a mixed media series using roosters and chickens. All three of these were started when I offered to clean out a messy watercolor palette at a recent PAC play day at Collage. The artist said she couldn't paint as her palette was too messy. I cleaned it taking very little paint while doing so and here is the result. Strange beginning? Yes. There are so many people who now have chickens in their backyard. It's quite remarkable.
I enjoy mixed media, collage, acrylics, watercolor, pen & ink, pastels, fiber art, needlefelting, embroidery, beading, encaustic, and monotype.
I am totally attracted to and live with a plethora of color. I always approach my art intuitively. Generally without a plan-I just do it. My creations are loose and abstract renderings that reflect my love of shape,color and texture.
I tend to work very fast, oftentimes working on 3-4 pieces at a time. It's not surprising that I'm prolific! I am so focused, that I can totally lose myself in the process. I love creating and my art makes me feel happy, alive, and relaxed.
I do art because I have to!
What about you?
