my art muse

The art muse which I made from vintage fabrics, an old paintbrush, and found objects, is wearing one of my jewelry designs. New jewelry designs have been posted on my website for your viewing pleasure. Please email me at if you are interested in purchasing an item or if you wish to commission a one of a kind piece of art jewelry.

Title: Jeff
Size: 11x15
Medium: Watercolor
What does one do with a painting that is not working? You can throw it in the garbage or you can let it incubate. You can cover it with gesso or you can cover it with collage. The painting above was an unfinished demonstration of tropical nature. I washed off the paint leaving a ghost image, dried it, turned it upside down and used it as a substrate for the drawing of Jeff's portrait. His amber colored eyes were the inspiration for using the substrate that had been incubating for quite some time. The painting is done in transparent watercolors.
