Hummingbird Studios: Mixed Media Fine Art mixed with the Fine Art of Life…

What happens when schools out for summer?

You  get a LOT of work done….this is a piece I was working on before my sunset inspired me and I finally got it done tonight.  I expanded on my cubist theme and added some beading which you see in the close ups. I love my beads…my husband hates them!!!  I also added foam board to create two different layers on the board.  By the way my husband also hated this….have I mentioned my husband has terrible taste in art!!!  Seriously I love to hear his input because it’s so different from mine and he keeps me grounded.  So below is the result of my next cubist inspired piece to add to my collection.  I’m really obsessed with this but it’s also nice to be creating a nice cohesive body of work considering how ADD I usually am….but don’t forget Windy you’re also playing around with encaustic on the side…so the  ADD isn’t completely gone and probably never will be!

I’m not used to working on multi-level surfaces….But I’m loving the foamboard on the wood….it’s too fun….

Here are the same holes but painted….the bead and wiring will come last….

New Work: First Stages

Happy Sunday to you!  Well, I got ahold of some foam board which I just loved and decided on this next triangular piece I was going to build up some sections.  Then I thought, well I have all these wire pieces as well, wire not incorporate just a tad of wire work into my cubist pieces as well to soften them up….so here’s the beginnings…the VERY beginnings of this piece….

Well, and not  to mention a previous piece I expoxied that looks amazing with the layer of envirotex on it…is taking a life-time to dry!  It’s been a week and it’s still tacky to the touch….anyone with expoxy tips let me know!  I’m open to all suggestions.  I love the look, and granted it’s a thick layer because that’s what I’m going for, but I’ll have to paint something years in advance at this rate to show or sell!! 🙂
