Contemporary mixed media series

Abstract Seaside Treasures

Happy New Year everyone!

I am really excited about 2018, because I’m focusing on creating larger, contemporary works in addition to the mini paintings and smaller works that I have been doing for several years now.

This is one of the new mixed media contemporary abstracts created with acrylics, crayons, and pencil on heavy paper (14 x 11 inches) using bold colors and floating, linear imagery. It is the first painting in my Tide Pool and Sea Glass theme this quarter. The loose, layered style is one of my favorite methods of developing a painting. Each layer works together to give the viewer both color and linear movement experiences.
