Prairie Rock

DSC_0248

Acrylic on canvas 12″x 36″

This painting was inspired by the many rocks that stand out on the hills of the natural prairies in the sea of grasses. There are so many forms, colors and textures as you start to look for them.

Abstract

DSC_0274

For this painting I was experimenting with tissue paper,paint, gel  medium, leaves, and string which turned out better than expected so I decided to mount it onto a 12″x 36″ canvas that is textured with modeling paste.

Sometimes… playing around ends in happy results.

This painting was done with acrylic and graphite on a 12″ x 24″canvas with some collage elements added to it. I wanted to create the sense of place that some of the seeds are still left hanging in the trees throughout the winter.

Watercolor on wood panel 12″x 12″

This new series began with sketching out in nature this summer. I have brought some of the seeds in to continue to sketch and wanted to implement my painting with the sketching. It becomes a process of applying and removing the watercolor and the drawings with inks, conte and graphite.
