Continuing to work on a smaller scale, I created two more 8″ x 8″ mixed media paintings on canvas. I am working toward adding some recognizable images (flowers in this case) without losing the colorful abstract elements. These two paintings use one of my favorite color palettes, the analogous blue-green-yellow hues. I’ve also added paper collage elements, some pen work, cheese cloth and raised texture using an acrylic molding paste. I am liking the direction these are going.
