How will my students finish what I’ve begun?

Well, my students have been asked to create two installations for our school!  Given Two large bundles of canvas, Thanks you to our Principal, as we study Shape, one of the Elements of Art, we decide to collage shapes.  You know I’m all about the frugal way to create and these collages are made simply using vintage papers and magazine pages, along with some acrylic paints and paint markers!!!  One installation will be in triangles and the other in rectangles and squares.  We’re using white as I’ve shown below as an example, then reds and browns and greens with the rest  of the canvases.  I can’t WAIT to see what my talented students do to finish what I’ve started!  Stay tuned for the final project.  In  the mean time, these will be made available as prints on Red Bubble and Artspan….  I’ve already had one client inquire as to a purchase, although the orignals are already spoken for and were meant to be hung in the school, they are now asking for prints.  Check out Red Bubble or ArtSpan by clicking the images Below and it will lead you to the opportunity to buy prints….who knows, when the kid’s work is done….. it might be even better!!!

Using the same technique with different mediums….what in the world will happen?

I’ve fallen so in love with Encaustic lately but I still love my acrylic technique so much, so I’m just going for it and playing around….remember to always just play and have fun!! so here I am playing around with using the exact same taping and collaging techniques except using encaustic instead of acrylic.  If you look at a lot of my shape based pieces you’ll see I”ll focus on either triangles, squares or rectangles….well with this encaustic piece I not only set aside the acrylic but used both squares and triangles….How DARE I????   🙂  But it was so so fun….so here is the result, let me know what you think and  leave a comment or “Like” it or just look at it and say “what the heck was she thinking”…..but just have a look ….. that’s all we should care about is putting what the muses give us on the substrate given us, whether it’s canvas, wood or notebook paper, then let others do what they will with it….(but I do love my comments I must say!!! 🙂  Peace and Light to you my friend.  WK

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!! 🙂
