Seascape


I have been in an experimental phase lately and I think the heavy rain has influenced a lot of my work with all the colours. This one is a heavily textured canvas called Seascape..it has bandages, coffee, eggshells, pistachio shells on it all encased in pva! and then painted over. Dont know if its finished yet though..


This one is called Leap of Life and I have used altered magazine brassoed pages for the background which were then ripped and covered with gesso, paints and inks..quite like all the textures on this one

Crunchy, just like my seaside walks on old mussel shells and dried up seaweed. Looks like some fun experimentation...and alternative to composting, ha!
