I wanted to share my latest project, a mixed media painting. Six women, with opal, seashell skin, float with arms extended performing a water appreciation dance. Each has a green dress of a different pattern. Waves of water cross the canvas in horizontal lines. Seven bubbles are scattered throughout the water pattern. The painting was inspired by my participation in Global Water Dances 2021. Colors are values of green, blue, and white. Mixed media on Arches, 140 lb., 18″ x 24”, hot pressed, cotton, watercolor paper.
I have been experimenting with the Victorian style again, this time using St. Patrick’s Day for my theme. Victorian wallpaper is so pretty with rich, decorative colors and so I emulated it for my own design.
I found the font “Maris Halftone Medium” on MyFonts.com and I really like it. The font has an uneven outline and whimsical, pinhole texture. The texture does not show at the size I used it here but would be cute if used hundreds of points high on a banner or something. A lot of the letters in Maris have fun flourishes that worked out well for my Happy Birthday design.
