Here’s one of my latest mixed media works, entitled “Windblown,” which is currently hanging in the Brandon Gallery in Fallbrook.
I wanted to create an abstract piece with many layers, while trying to capture the feeling of movement. After I completed the main work, I felt that it still lacked a textural component so I decided to anchor it with a thick fiber rice paper, (in white). The balance of the painting is done with fluid and transparent acrylic paints on a clay aquaboard substrate.
Once completed, the movement and energy in the painting reminded me of a windy day along the coast of Cambria, Calif which inspired the work’s title.
