New Mixed-Media Work (Part 2)

Title(s): Color Scheme No. 1 and No. 2
Medium: watercolor and stitched fibers (cotton thread) on paper
Paper size: 5×7 inches

More embroidered paintings! These two mixed-media pieces are small “color stories”. Sometimes before I start a painting, I make a small “color scheme” sketch to get a feel for which colors I want to paint with. I personally love looking at these little color sketches (almost as much as the actual finished painting they inspire). I thought I should come up with a way to “elevate” these sketches, so that they were final products in their own right- and this is what I came up with! The graphic black stitches connect each color to form a unique composition.

“The modern artist… is working and expressing an inner world – in other words – expressing the energy, the motion, and other inner forces.” – Jackson Pollock

“It’s all in how you arrange the thing… the careful balance of the design is the motion.”  – Andrew Wyeth

A collection of paintings, photographs, and a few installations that have a sense of movement:

I am working to add more items and update the others on my etsy shop, http://www.musicalcolorstudio.etsy.com …it is a work in progress, but soon there will be more holiday cards, a few of the textile prints that I featured on here a while ago, and some newly updated product photography.
