My latest painting - from beginning to end...

My latest painting is called 'Links in Blue and Brown'.

I started by laying on really wet paint, and then used a paper towel to smudge and remove the excess paint.

Then I added a few more colors, and used some dissolve and drip techniques to create a stone-like appearance.

Finally, I added the mod shapes and linked them together with raised white paint. I finished by painting the edges a dark brown and applying a protective varnish.

You can see more original artwork in my etsy shop.

Happy Earth Day, earthlings!

Ok, so yeah, have you tried those Chocolate Cheerios? Well, I have and I'm hooked, and now I have lots of cereal boxes in my recycling bin. After consulting with my art guru Chris, about the safest way to use cardboard in a mixed media piece, I have come up with Blue and Brown Blocks. I'll probably do more of these later, but I'm currently out of milk...
