These mixed media pieces are part of a new series I’m calling “Prayers”
Each piece is a prayer expressed in visual form. ❤
The repeating patterns are symbolic of a spiritual language/dialogue. Just as braille forms shapes and patterns to communicate, I too am feeling my way with brush and pen to speak.
Each mixed media painting in this series is created on 4″ x 5″ watercolor paper that is handmade in Montreal and then mounted on 6″ x 8″ black mat board ready to frame. Each piece is $20
Please contact me if you’d like to purchase any of the pieces below. This is an open series so more will be added on a regular basis.
As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been working away on a new series of Block Prints inspired by themes and imagery in the Bible. I’ve been focusing primarily on animals and plants of significance.
So far I have done the classic Lion and Lamb, Eden tree Pomegrantes, Soul Mates, Sparrow and a Honey Bee.
Here’s a peak at these new blocks and two test print and reveals.
You can see lots more of these by following me on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/milke.amanda/
I haven’t decided what to do next so it will be a surprise for both of us 😉
Once the print run is done I’ll be listing the prints for sale in my etsy shop and by direct message. What’s your favorite so far?
As I was hunting through the studio over the weekend looking for something else, I came across my stash of block printing supplies and thought I was long overdue for a new run of prints.
So I spent the weekend carving out some blocks. Here’s a look at the new pieces, I have a few more in the planning stages that I hope to carve out soon and then maybe this coming weekend I’ll have time to do a print run.
Thanks for checking things out.
Say that 3 times fast 😉
Anyway lol I finished up the pendants I posted about a few days ago and I’m loving the triple thick gloss.
It gives each piece a gorgeous shine and pottery appearance.
I still haven’t decided what my default necklace will be, ball chain, silk cord or color coordinated suede cord.
Also I’m trying to decide which style I like best. A few years ago I painted wooden bangles in the color blocked black doodle style andi sold out of them to a local skate/snowboarding shop so I tried it out on the pendants.
The other style is a more abstract organic textured print. Personally I’m leaning towards that one.
I’d love to get your thoughts on them which one would you love to wear?
Well it’s been a long week and my carpal is acting up so I’m taking the night off to rest.
Have a Great weekend!
Tune back in next week for more Art.
