Mixed Media

I’ve recently made a foray into mixed media.  I’ve done 4:  a personal one, a steampunk one, an urban decay one, an art & photography one, and a “women empowerment” one.  I have listed the women empowerment one for sale on craigslist.  We’ll see if I get any bites.  I was unsure how to price it, so I just took into account the cost of the canvas and items I purchased for it plus the time that went into creating it.  It’s a fun pursuit; it allows for complete freedom of the artistic process.  I’ve had good luck selling my paintings on craigslist; hopefully this venture will be successful as well.

Here are photos of the mixed media projects I have done (minus the personal one):

New Painting Style

I am working on a painting in a style I have never painted in before.  (And also in a color combination that I do not typically use.)  The painting is pretty much done, but I need to tweak it a little.  I like the result; it is quite a departure from my existing styles.  I used a palette knife to scrape and spread the paint I had already applied, making short, quick strokes.  I typically use a palette knife to apply thick strokes of paint.

I think it is important as an artist to keep trying new things and to continue to grow and evolve.  The painting is called “The Butterfly Effect”.  It will be posted on my art site by this weekend.
