Street Series: no. 2

"On the Street Where I Live, no. 2"
mixed media acrylic and collage on canvas

I did post this directly to Facebook, but wanted to include it here on my blog.
These "Street" pieces are kind of a geometric counterpart to my organic stone pieces.
I guess you've noticed the addition of some color and machine stitching.
I love black and white but after awhile, my soul calls out for color.
Keeping it subtle for now.
Or until my soul speaks again.

"On the Street Where I Live"

"On the Street Where I Live"
mixed media acrylic painting and collage on canvas

I thought I would create 6 paintings that are more geometric in nature to contrast with the organic "rock"
paintings I did a few weeks (months?) ago.
Still working primarily with black and white here, but adding in some color.
How much color there will be overall in the six pieces is up to the work,
which often has a mind of its own even though I go in with an idea, like mostly black and white.
Some stitching is incorporated.

When In Doubt...

"Remembering Alice"
mixed media collage

When in doubt, I make a collage.
It is my default art practice.
I don't know if that is good or bad, but it is the reality.

So, although I come back to collage over and over again, I am always trying to up my game,
making it richer and more layered.  Or using new techniques or materials.
I guess one has to stay true to and own the way it is that they think and create art.

I Needed a Little Color

All My Eggs, One Basket
mixed media

I am not done working with the black and white pieces but I needed a little bit of color.
That led me to this piece.
I liked to the long narrow format.
This was pure play.
I need to play more.
