Mixed Media Artist

From Silence I Emerge (Diptych)

This is a 18″x18″ and a 18″x36″ mixed media painting on canvas. I am still mulling this one over. Almost done, if not done. The colour in this diptych painting actually DOES match. Not sure what is up with that. I guess I will need to re-do the photo of the bottom one as the colour seems faded while the top one is true. Just thought you might be interested in what I am up to. I think that I like the diptych idea, although I really feel like I have NO perspective of what I am doing right now. A little a bit of not being able to see the forest because of the tree, I think. Well, we all know cutting down the trees isn’t going help so instead I am just trusting that the forest is there and that it will become clearer with a little distance.
(The white band is not part of the painting).

    Intriguing….I like the diptych format. There is something here that brings to mind a living, breathing totem pole….and the woman is the base, creating her own totem. Dialogue with it and it will tell you what it wants and needs to be. Who knows…it might tell you it needs to be a triptych. Trust.
