Yupo, India Ink and Alcohol Inks

These pieces are also from the Mixed Media workshop. I have been playing with the India and Alcohol Inks. I have come up with a series of floral patterns. It's on yupo paper so I am going to mat them with a 5 x 7 mat in an 8 x 10 frame.

Mixed Media Workshop

This painting is a 12 x 18 on Gesso Board. It's oil paint and cold wax. This is my first time using cold wax and I love the feel and texture of it. I plan to use it in some of my future work.

It's titled "Keep Rolling". I started our with various shapes and hated what I had. Part of the workshop was to push yourself and to keep adding layers. I continued to add layers and finally took a roller and kept rolling on it. I ended up with this really neat texture and design. This is my first abstract painting that I can actually feel it is art worthy.... Whatever that means...
