Funny how life comes full circle. Realized it when doing latest theme piece Anonymous. As need an updated self portrait (am draped so won't find an entity below the cloth) wanting to capture the "brillo" steel wool that now call my midlife hairstyle rusty red going blue gray; yet show the energy feel and light try to cast when painting the "art". This is a work in progress with concentrated watercolors, acrylic inks and probably throw in some type of "silver leafing" to represent the lightning strikes. Many textures are built into the piece so once again, will be a mixed media piece. Remember the tye dye era; poster art, shirts, clothes in all shape sizes......am coming full circle or...perhaps just revisiting my teen flower child years, smile.
It's appropriate here to honor my mentors, Trish McKinney, Stephen Blackburn and Don Andrews who's workshops have attended over the last couple of years. Finding Rosie Huart and attending one of her spirtual workshops accelerates and connects many levels in the work! Google their name for exceptional art!
the piece will be finished and posted here and in the gallery at http://www.theartistchallenge.com
