I’ve been working on this mixed media for several days, adding layer after layer, medium upon medium, until finally, I see/feel balance and unity.
This was one of the first occasions where I used my new gouache paints. I’m still learning how and when to use them, I love how quickly they dry. I also used Brusho crystals, acrylic, mixed media gel pens, and oil pastels.
“Abundant” feels full and alive to me. Abstract, yet floral, in a non-figurative way. A safe place to hide and let your imagination take over, you have permission to escape!
I have a bunch of 16″ x 20″ white matting frames, and I kind of like the way they look just placed on top of the painted canvas, especially when there is white in the painting. I haven’t adhered it to the canvas, I don’t know if that would be wise?
Wishing you all an Abundant amount of creativity, good health, love, and gratitude!🙏❤
