As most of you know I was in a serious car accident over Memorial Day weekend with my husband. This was two and a half months after my sweet mother passed away. Thank you for your patience and kindness. We are fine and moving forward with optimism and much gratitude.
I have been participating in a yearlong on-line class taught by Carla Sonheim from Seattle, WA. The focus is working in a series.
My first series was work I created using my Great Aunt Ruth’s photo album. The photos dated from the 1920s to the 1940s. Many were taken in New Orleans. My hometown.
I set parameters for my images. They would be 18″ x 24″, acrylic over watercolor color field painting, and on paper.
Before I began I tested my new technique on 9″ x 12″ paper.
I enjoyed this layering of acrylic over watercolor, so moved forward in a larger format.
I have just completed my second series which I will show you next time. Be careful out there!
