MIXED MEDIA

Since every Mixed Media Artist  likes to incorporate “Mixed Media” into their work.  I’m no different, punching my paintings with just about anything I can think of.  It could be metal, threads,  papers, etc.

I’ve been working on deli wrap papers to paint, stamp on, cut up, tear up, and anything else I could think of.  It’s the kind of prep work that numbs your mind, but has to be done.

It isn’t finished yet, but the inspiration came from a few samples of fabric I found, and a pile of yarn.

What to do with the yarn?  Well I was thinking of making the yarn serve as texture…..  I guess I have a problem with adding things to make texture.  I will try it,  but at the moment I couldn’t tell you exactly where to put it, or what painting to use it on.

Oh so much fun, but so little time!

Doodled Greeting Cards

Doodled Greeting Cards

Whenever I get a little time, or something just hits me right, I make an effort to sit down and do some Doodling, or Zentangeling.  It seems like a waste of time, but there are times when the end of the day is close, and I don’t have the energy to do something big.  So in order to make it count, I’ve been making greeting cards.  There are times when sending an e-card just isn’t enough.

Ok  Ok, so a little part of me is still old school.  But there are times when it’s good to have a real card!  Here are a few more cards I’ve put together.

Are they finished, I’m not sure.

Sometimes being simple is better.  Sometimes Less is not enough, and more is better.  I feel that way about my paintings also.  I rarely go too far in a good way, and usually stop before it gets obnoxious.   That’s why it takes two painters to finish a painting.  One to paint, the other to tell them when to stop!   So maybe that’s a matter of opinion, that’s ok as well.

Boxes & boxes of blank cards are waiting for inspiration.

Sometimes I make stamps, and transfer them to the front of a card….  I’m very spontaneous, and unpredictable when art is concerned!
