Layers and Layers

Since I last wrote my studio has become a laboratory of experimentation.

My treasure trove of collage pieces has found its way to new canvas and wood panels. Maps, wrapping paper, ticket stubs, tissue dress patterns, string, architecture text books, all torn and carefully glued.

Extra house paint, latex, is painted and rubbed on top of the texture.

Step back.

Think.

Change the music.

Think.

Look some more.

Acrylics, pastels, charcoal over it all.

These new pieces can all be see at High Country Art Gallery in Blue Ridge, GA. More experiments are stirring in the studio with subject matter such as whales, turtles, horses, and insect life. Stay tuned.

Landscapes of Summer

As summer sets in, the Georgia heat waves the air with exhaustion.

I retreat to my studio where colors and canvas wait.

While on a driving trip over Memorial Day weekend my husband and I stopped for the night in Fairhope, Alabama. I took some photos from Point Clear of Mobile Bay. They were my inspiration.

Earlier in the summer I had the good fortune to be invited to Cashiers, NC. We hiked to see a waterfall. On the way we watched the white water on the rocks of the river.
