We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

"Abstracted lake" 4x12 mixed media on canvas $150

This is another part of my search. I'm beginning to love the small and intimate size compared to my usual large format. I've always enjoyed the physical part of painting large however the transporting and practical part of it....not so much. Along with experimenting with the extreme size change I've found myself enjoying the freedom that using many mediums can bring. I used acrylics, pastels, sgraffito, and craypas to create this landscape.

I love the new, small pieces done in the mixed media and the unusal shapes of the canvases. I think this is piece is one of my favorites and I can't wait to see where you continue to go with the series. Keep playing with the mixed media!
