I was thoroughly immersed in a class on Medieval
European History when I finally got a bug to paint again (such a 'creative bug' went
missing after my numerous surgeries in 2010-2011).
This past winter/spring I created four 16” x 20”
canvas angel icons in mixed media. I textured my black canvases with kraft
paper, plaster, and silk. I used acrylic on the portraits along with paper
mosaics, vintage sari silks, and upholstery tacks.
Visit the tab located under the blog header (above) titled: BYZANTINE BOHEMIAN to see the works-in-progress!
Under the header (above) you will find various tabs that will take you to other pages on this blog. The first such page shows you some of my artist trading cards. The second tab "BiG FiSH" will show you various "work-in-progress" pictures of a giant wood sculpture I stained in situ (outdoors).
Here is the "studio" I worked in during the project...
During the project (which I worked on for several weeks) the weather remained fabulous. I was recovering from a serious surgery, but was still able to climb around the scaffolding - although I lost count how many times I konked my head when working on the lower portion of the fish!
"Any of it [teaching] that is good is in the Word of God, and any that is not in the Word of God is not good. I am a Bible Christian and if an archangel with a wingspread as broad as a constellation shining like the sun were to come and offer me some new truth, I'd ask him for a reference. If he could not show me where it is found in the Bible, I would bow him out and say, 'I'm awfully sorry, you don't bring any references with you'"
