This gallery represents my earliest endeavors in mixed media and acrylic painting. I was exploring the concepts of color value and design, as well as learning a variety of painting techniques. The pieces began as free form explorations with many layers. Each layer and attempt to find what could work as a composition and how to let the painting lead me to the final product.
All pieces are acrylic mixed media on wood panel.
- At this time I fulfilled a need to cover the canvas
- I found sharp edges and shapes were the easiest way to see what was happening with the design elements
- Eventually, I let the sharp edges give way to more free and expressive gesture and forms
