Weathered canoe paddle paintings with a contemporary high gloss finish are what have been keeping my busy lately. Old and new combine beautifully in these colourful originals. http://www.maryloosoriginals.om
I’m enjoying the new florals and abstracts so much I’m sure there are more to come. They are all fun and frolic to make and all the more sweet because of the journey it took to get to this point. I’ve been experimenting with resin techniques for many years. I’ve learned it all the only way I know how, by making mistakes. Lots of mistakes. Now I can add mixed media to the resin and work oils, foils, acrylics, ink and have some success along the way.
I’ve been searching for that extra something that helps push me in the right direction. Creating something unique and new has been challenging me lately and thinking about it is taking up way too much head space. Well, today is my lucky day. I found one of my all time favourites at Vinyl Destination in Merrickville. If listening to this doesn’t help me find my way then nothing will.
This new painting brings back the serene feeling of standing under the aurora on a still evening and listening to see if you can actually hear the dancing lights in the sky.
A rainy day is what we needed around here to nourish the gardens and trees and to get a little painting in.
revealing the painting early this morning…
This bold bright tree is called “Find the Time” and is the new arrival at Windsor’s Courtyard in Merrickville. It’s an original acrylic and high gloss resin painting on a 48 x 36 cradled wood panel. Check out the shop and courtyard for beautiful gifts and treasures for your home and garden.
I have a small series of six new original Queen Anne’s Lace ready for the final touch- the high gloss coat that pops the colour and adds protective layer to the art work. Coming soon to Windsor’s Courtyard in Merrickville, Ontario.
There is something about Queen Anne’s Lace that brings back memories of childhood hot summer days that seemed to stretch far longer than the length of the school break. This painting has a dreamy quality of wildflowers moving in the warm breeze. It’s a new addition and available at Windsor’s Courtyard in Merrickville, Ontario.
