One done: Mixed media work “color puzzle” finished

G´day to you, dear readers!

So this piece is finally finished. I had to restrain myself because one could actually go on and on and on, adding one more colorful scrap of paper and another one as the process is quite hypnotic and really fun.

But it is enough now, and I am content with the result…

…and so is my beloved dog Miles Mulligan III 😉

Have a nice week with lots of sunshine.

Another wip: mixed media collage in the making

Hi,

so this is another piece of work in progress while “space jungle” is propped up at the easle to look at and contemplate how to go on… This one – working title “color puzzle”- is another one of those upcycled ones put away and pulled up again, somehow that seems to fit my mood these days and trigger my flow. And I still am fond of layering. Well, we´ll see how this one progresses…I do like to have two or more artsy projects in the making to get inspired by one when working on the other, and to combat getting stuck alltogether (which usually happens at one point).

I wonder when I feel like sculpting again?! 🙂

Have a good week.

Mixed media endeavours – one finished, one in progress

Hello dear readers,

as predicted, my latest mixed media collage did not take long to finish. I added some (pieces) of leaves and some more subtle layers of paper and paint. I am quite content with the end result even though the colours suggest autumn rather than the upcoming spring – but I feel, with the fiery lively red, it sure will do.

“fragile” / mixed media collage. 25x25cm

 

 

This one, with the working title “space jungle”, is another piece started some time ago, put aside, worked on a bit, put aside and so on… I get back to it in between, add scraps and paint, let it rest …not the easiest painting I worked on so far, we´ll see where it goes. It´s 50x60cm, so quite a bit of “space” to cover.

Some colourful paintings …

Hiya,
finished these two….those were unfinished paintings I upcycled with scrap-collage-paper-glueing, using coloured paper and printed napkins. It is a nice and playful and nice un-plann-able technique. I enjoyed it, being quite tense and wanting to create though not having the patience for sculpting or to start and finish any painting from start till end.  Will use this technique more often, I find it quite mood uplifting 😉

Some colours I like…

Somehow I was in the mood for some nice colours and worked on two acrylic/mixed-media-paintings simultanously.

Here´s the first one…

“Golden reds”

P.S. I got a “Happy one-year-aniversary” message today from wordpress – how time flies…

Have a great week, y´all! 😉

 

 

Grimbo. A little dragon.

 

grimbo

I painted/crafted this little dragon some time ago when experimenting with different materials. This varnish shade is called croco crackling, no surprise there ;-). I wanted to have a bit of a 2 D effect so one of his wings sticks out. My inner child had fun with this, and the grownup-me had tremendous fun last week with the 3D mighty-mean-beautiful-crazy-fascinating-scary-overwhelming dragon Smaug.
