Mixed media of acrylic inks, watercolor and pastel. This piece is done on "hot press" watercolor paper. Each month there are themes chosen from a group artists site. This month's free theme was Under the Sea. Having started this piece with acrylic inks several months ago; it's been sitting there waiting to be developed. Knew could see clearly a fish hidden in the coral. As the announcement came pulled this out and felt more confident in proceeding with the composition.

Ascension

Topics: Mary Sonya Conti, Yupo, angels, art, expressionism, seascape, spiritual artwork

This particular work is now "on hold" What does that mean? If you truly understand the work it is meant to be yours. A layaway plan made it possible for it to go home with them (hopefully by the holidays). What is most important; it is going to the one meant to have it with unconditional love. Certain artwork that bears a stroke becomes a part of you and we find it very difficult to turn loose of that work. Had put off offering this piece until Late September.

For this I give thanks for the answer to a prayer… Continue reading… 1 comment
