mixed media on wood: watercolor paint, painting of mud cloth fabric, bone, shells, nails, wood stripping, african fetish, buttons, beads from africa.
this new art piece is a totally different "style" for me (sort of). for those of you familiar with my art you know that i have worked in mixed media/collage previously. but normally i do not work "non representationally" (if that is the correct word?). there are usually "figures" "people""creatures" in my art. however, for this piece, they did not seem to belong. i must confess that it was quite hard for me to NOT put a figure/face/hand/etc. in the art piece. i resisted mightily...and am pleased i did. they would not compliment the piece i don't think.
still, this is a new style for me...and although i like it and am quite satisfied...it turned out exactly as i envisioned it in my mind's eye before i began...i am still not use to not seeing my "usual cast of characters".
i am pleased that i tried something different and new (for me). an auspicious way to begin 2010!
