Newer work #100

This painting was done in a different way than the majority of my mixed media pieces.  Although I had the two (yes, just two) pieces leftover from a cut, it was enough.  Then I cut the panel specifically to fit the art I was going to make (usually the panel is a separate inspiration), and then I painted the underlying acrylic first – to work with the clouds cut-out before I put the watercolor part on.  Then the poetry.

A Forever home

Yes, it is possible to sell art during the pandemic.  A major collector saw one of my ‘Newer Work’ posts and decided to treat herself.  I’m not only blessed with the sale, but also the pic of the painting in its new Forever Home.  Although she says she might move things around.

The painting is called “Sky Comes Down”.

It contains the following haiku:
Sky comes down to us,
At every angle the rain
that might wash us clean.

Spider – added bits

A couple people suggested some markings on the spider – so I put a couple dabs of white on when I’d finished painting the stucco at the other end of the house…..

I’m guessing here at spider markings…

Then I thought I’d add some red to make it more feroceous-looking.

That’s it, I’m done!

Seeing as we’re all sitting around these days, we might as well see what shapes the clouds make.
