It's 10:18am, I am getting ready for some extensive work here, and maybe have a few surprises that are closer than you can imagine. I have some serious blogs on the way but I figured right now I would show a lighter side of my art. I am working on a textured landscape, and I can actually say this is one of my hardest projects because I am stuck between dumping it and working more on it.
I spoke to my Facebook and Etsy buddy Bella of BellaCosa Art and she gave me some great ideas on how to work with it and enhance it a little bit more. She has advised me to work on it more and add more dimension to it, so I'm leaning more towards working more and more on it. She is a great artist who has a bit of both rural and more city/eclectic feel to her work. We have become good art buddies, and she is part of my art family, along with all of my friends from all of my Ning sites. I will be featuring her here on a future blog so stay tuned.
The picture is a combination of acrylic, gouache, and oil pastels on a textured surface(of course) and it is a 11 3/4 x 39 3/5 canvas(can't you just feel the challenge?)...lol
Anyway, when I feel good about showing it, I will definitely expose to my family. In the meantime I want to show one of my earlier pictures from my Optical Illusions series that I will be reproducing in the near future(adding some texture to it don't ya know). Maybe it will segueway into another avenue of my projects, which seem to be going into separate directions, but they all have the same theme, to illuminate the overlooked and ignored objects in society....
Thanks to all who have joined my site as well as commented...I luv you all....Quwwa
