Many of my sketches were for sculptural ceramic pieces. Organic shapes and lines throughout the sketches. I was also trying to deconstruct objects from nature and then paint them or sculpt them in ceramics.
Mixed media is a favorite of mine as it gives me the chance to work with all types of media at the same time. I am not confined to just one type of medium but can interact with watercolors and acrylics and or oil paints in one painting. There is a freedom to painting with mixed media.
I started two new paintings this week with mixed media on different surfaces with the stained glass concepts as part of my inspiration. I am currently working on about 15 paintings. I am surrounded by color at this time. The more color the better. I am looking forward in seeing how these new paintings progress. It feels great to be given the gift of art.
I love to sketch and draw in charcoal. I was interested in sculptural concepts for making ceramic sculptures. This has not changed except that I work on canvas instead of ceramics at this time.
