Mixed Media Work

For a commission I am doing, I will be printing a photo on canvas and then painting over it. To give myself a little practice working this way, I took a while mess of photos from my personal collection, printed them out, mounted them on cardboard, and went at them with paint, maker graphite and whatever else was around.  I have always kept a camera or too around. I have a massive library of photos. The oldest picture that appears here was taken summer of 2001. The most recent photo was taken yesterday.

(These are a hand-made item, as such, dimensions may not be uniform)

New Mixed Media work. Aside her art and her family, my mother was also devoted to keeping a number of lovely flower gardens around my father’s home. She kept a meticulous bed of tulips near the swing set I played on as a child in the back yard.

Each year, I look forward to Tulip Fest, here in Albany, NY, and on mother’s day, I go and photograph the beautiful gardens of tulips. For me it is a way to recall memories of my mother and the gardens she took so much pride in.

 

All: Tulips, Washington Park, Albany, NY, 2019, digital photo and mixed media 4″ x 6″ $65 framed.

I have started a new set of the Small Works Progress Administration (small paintings in acrylic and mixed media). That in the parenthesis there is something of a change in of itself: I discovered I really enjoy working in mixed media by doing a project for a friend. Previous series of small works had been in acrylic paint only, but this set includes acrylic paint, graphite, and marker, on gessoed cardboard. This new series will sell for $25 each. (dimensions are approximately 5″ x 9″, though these are hand-made items and their sizes vary)

[All works in The Small Works Progress Administration series are all currently on sale $20, or 2 for 30, –further discounts for sets]
