Pieces from last semester

Last semester was an intense one - new art making experiences - conceptual installation, encaustic, performance and abstract painting in acrylic. My boundaries were really pushed. Below are some images of my work.

I took this photo of Venus and didn't notice the sun was shining on the bottom of the painting. 
2'x3' canvas oil, cold wax using pallette knife and heat.

Diptych acrylic on canvas 18"x24"

My first intuitive abstracts paintings. The colours in the photos are slightly off and the edges are not straight either so ignore the black edges. Hmm why don't I notice this stuff before I upload.

  2. Thanks Brian. Definitely new territory that I want to continue to pursue this semester.
    It looks like you will continue to build success in your practice. How are the larger pieces going?

  3. Elizabeth,

    The larger works are coming along just fine. Lot's of new ideas and directions for the new year. I post all of my new work on my Flickr page if you're interested:

  6. Thanks Caio. Glad you like the abstracts! I want to make a large scale abstract and explore using acrylic more.
