the warrior

Size: 22x30
Medium: watercolor
For years I have used a palette of sixteen colors. Eight warm and eight cool. The assignment for this workshop was to paint a 22 by 30 watercolor using only the warm side of the palette. Also, emphasis on the use of strong color values. No wimpy wishy washy pastels for this assignment. This painting has been SOLD.

no highbrow stuff

Size: 5x5
Mixed Media Collage
In art I pull no highbrow stuff, I know what I like and that's enough...William W. Woollcott I love this quote so I included it in this collage. Emphasis on this week's class demonstration was to use text on the collage, but to integrate it into the design. Layer upon layer of transparent hand made papers make up most of this collage.

chemical transfer

This is a watercolor that was painted on cold press paper, reduced fifty percent, and chemically color transfered onto hot press paper. A black and white image of the same was transfered as a top layer along with some text.
