LILACS & FIESTA




LILACS & FIESTA












I deeply admire the work of colorist Anne O’brien-Gonzales. I have her book; Bold Expressive Painting plus three of her painting demonstration DVD’s.
Her style speaks to me with its loose brush strokes, a bunch of color with a touch of mixed media whimsy. 

I set up a still life with my Fiesta water pitcher, an old spice tin and fish salt and pepper shakers. The palette was complimentary with rice papers added for texture. The lilacs are out of my imagination.

I can almost smell the sweet scent of the lilac flowers.

MOOLIN ROUGE

Mixed Media

I deliberately misspelled Molin to Moolin and collage to cowllage for my entry to Art Mundo's exhibit  of
"All Things Bovine". 
Local artists from around the Treasure Coast submitted cow paintings and I feared that many would 
think of this play on words for my Moolin Rouge but I was the only one. I think it has a fun whimsical happiness persona and it is all a figment of my imagination.

THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY








GAMES PEOPLE PLAY  9/01/17

This unique art project took an esoteric turn when I tried to symbolize actual board games that people play while implying the human interaction games we all play at one time or another.

First there is the checker board background that could be checkers, chess or parcheesi. Floating off of the background are sheets of Masa paper molded into the classic X & O’s shapes.  These X’s & O’s have gold painted on the top surface in my triptych of matching shadow box frames.
