"Beach Gifts" is another of the Tiny Gems series that I created before Christmas to give to loved ones. It was glued to a w/c paper card. I then signed it and sent it of to one of our many family members and friends. I started one or two and kept on going until I had finished 100! (big family). I could do about 20 at a sitting - and it was addictive! They got better and better the more I did - so it was hard to stop. I took photos of them all before I sent them off so at least I still have the image. If you fall in love with them, I can do lots more - just let me know. They will all be different but I can keep to the same color palette.
"Breathless' is an abstract painting done with alcohol inks on Yupo. The color is de10-29ep and exciting with blues and a few pieces of orange and white. It speaks to me of pushing up from the depths, up into the light and the air, with deep breaths, to the space above. After my tiny gems (see earlier posts) at Christmas, I'm going larger. This impactful painting is adhered to an 9x12 panel, sides are black, and all are painted with acrylic gloss medium. It is truly extraordinary - like an ancient enamel.
