Lake Powell Abstraction

I tried something new this week. This is a mixed media on paper. The background paper has various rice papers attached to it and then acrylic painted in an abstract manner. Then I added pieces of paper on top and painted a more representational image of Lake Powell in watercolor. Finally, I attached the pieces with gold thread in the corners of the pieces and where they intersect. It's very different but I am really happy with the outcome.

  1. This is really amazingly creative. Wish I could see it larger on the screen.
    I hope to get over to the Orange Open. It is a good show and I will look for your work.
    Thanks for your comment on my blog
