Works in Progress

Orchids and Little Lights

Painting, adding paper, wiping paint off, adding more dry layers of paint, adding more paper, scrubbing with water…this is what the process looked like for several hours as I built up the background texture of this painting. And I had such a blast doing it! I loved seeing how the paint, depending on how applied it, picked up texture from the layers beneath it. So fun. Here are some of the components/elements of this work:

And then here’s a smaller version I did. The larger one measures 20″ x 24″ and the smaller version is done on a 12″ x 12″ panel.
