Beautiful Commissioned Browns

This 10″ x 20″ x 1.5″ dyptych was created for a very special person that I have known almost my whole life (since I was about 11 years old). It was an honor of mine to do these for her. See what you think!

These were created using hand-made paints from pigment powders. I used acrylic media in the paint to help facilitate the Rayleigh–Taylor instability effect. As always, I took time to test the paints to make sure they would interact with the ivory and white used to create this lacing effect. Their title:  Meteor Shower Veil (1 & 2).

Triptych of Flowers

Painted with fluid acrylics on birch wood panels. Once cured, these pieces will have an isolation coat and several varnish coats or, I may varnish with resin or wax. I cannot decide!

If I could put the chronic pain process on canvas, this painting would represent part of that synapse!

Good Intentions  •2017

This 12″ x 16″ x 1.5″ painting is created from multiple layers of mixed media and acrylic paint. It’s under coat has ceramic stucco and glass bead medium. The very top layer (white) has gold flakes, that add additional textural interest. It is sealed with an isolation coat and glazed multiple times. It now has a home with a neighbor, who loves art! Her house is practically an art gallery!
