Yes, I am back to producing what I know and love - the flowing, linear, mark making with enhancements here and there. I'm building up a stock of small canvases for the 'Small Pleasures and Treasures' Christmas exhibition at Main Street Gallery, Montville. Coincidently, I am calling these 'Small Gestures'. These are 300 x 300 mm - mixed media on canvas.
...below are some pics of the developmental process [there are 6 paintings in this series] - I used rusted steel wool mixed with PVA to get these lovely rusty details.
I gave up on the encaustic - didn't get the results I wanted and as it is a messy and intrusive medium, I have put it away for the time being. However, I WILL get back to it when I don't have a deadline to meet.
On another Main Street Gallery note, our Bazola range is selling well - 7 pieces to date, so Baz has forged up a storm for me over the past few days. This is what he delivered yesterday [photo courtesy of Baz's 'Rustnstuff' blogsite].
No rest for the wicked!!
