The most recent commission in the studio brought the opportunity to do something a little different from the abstract encaustic pieces and landscapes I've been working with lately. A rich, velvety, painted black background with metallic gold abstract design overlay was just the break I needed from the painterly world I've been in. Repetitive, graphic, abstract forms are my jam-this piece has a lot of the elements you'd find again and again in my notebooks of doodles. A few images of the process below:
Something a little cosmic glam about this piece, which felt kinda perfect for the week we said goodbye to Bowie. My daughter's preschool had a Bowie Dance Party on Friday to celebrate his life. How beautiful is that?
This piece made me really happy and seemed to appeal to a lot of folks I shared it with so I am inspired to make more soon. Lots of shiny, happy things coming out of the studio in 2016!
