My acrylics have not been touched in ages so yesterday I decided to play. I wanted to play intuitively so I started with an old unfinished watercolor painting, wet the surface and scrubbed off most of the paint. After it dried, I started playing with some of the ghost shapes, layering images and adding textures as I went along. Several times areas were painted over and reworked. This is the result of four hours of play. I also played a bit with Citra-Solve. You can see the painting here.
A peek at some purses from my SWEET REVENGE designs. See these and other designs at the 2nd annual Day of the Dead Festival, at aVita Boutique in the Raven's Nest in Ajo, Az. November 1 2015 from 11 am to 3 pm.
Art Unraveled is just around the corner. This is one of several pieces that will be featured at the Shopping Extravaganza. I will introduce a new line of jewelry and accessories called Sweet Revenge, which includes artisan jewelry, artisan headbands, artisan soft visors, and purses. All are one of a kind....very artsy and very fun to wear. Hope to see you there.
Hard to believe that it has been 3 months since my dear friend JoAnna Pierotti left us. She crosses my mind everyday. A few years ago during one of our play days, she taught me how to make a necklace for my Kayla's birthday. It was on a micro mini canvas, very colorful, lots of bling and a pink ribbon to go around her neck...she loved it. Today I made another version of the necklace in honor of JoAnna....I know she was watching me create. I miss my friend.
It was a cold day in Paris... I found someone else he said, as he packed a bag and left me, leaving behind his favorite navy blazer and red silk tie. In anger and tears, I ripped the blazer to shreds, cut up the tie, and tore into the jewelry he had gifted me....Today I design artisan jewelry and accessories from those shreds of fabric, buttons off the blazer, and bits of broken jewelry. Every piece has a story...SWEET REVENGE !!!
