There's just something very zen for me about working on these.  These are mixed media pieces - a lot of paper, acrylic, watercolor, and puff paint.   I love experimenting with bright colors and making things (fabric, paper) look like other materials (glass, tile). 



Detail from the painting "Summer".




"Summer" - 2' x 3' mixed media!  It's hanging on what was previously a painfully bare wall in my apartment.




Detail from the painting "Woodsy".




"Woodsy" - 16" x 20" mixed media!  For a dear friend who nags me for artwork, mostly to encourage me to keep working. Wink


 thanks for taking a look!

This is awesome! I find it kind of ruminant.

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.
