New Life and New ART


I’ve been thinking about my 2019 exhibit(s) and the theme I keep having come to mind is a series of mixed media paintings based on scriptures that incorporates florals, botanicals and natural elements. There’s so many verses in the Bible that talk about life and growth using plant based analogies that I think it would make for a rich and vibrant series. I have a ton of ideas for paintings and art objects which I will share with you over the next few months. Til then, I’ll leave you with this work in progress flower that will soon be added to my Tree of Life painting.

Local artist Inspired by the divine


I had the pleasure of being interview for the local Fort Saskatchewan newspaper as part of my Blue Pomegranate art exhibit! Tonight’s the night for my Artist Talk. I can’t wait to share with everyone my process, inspiration and a personal tour of the gallery. Starts at 7pm hope you can make it out!

Midnight in the Garden


I’m still painting up a frenzy over here!
I started working on this piece which once done will be called ‘Midnight in the Garden’
It’s a square, 24″x 24″ gallery profiled mixed media painting.
I used a variety of mediums to build up layers and texture on the piece. I started with has a teal, napthol red and white wash followed by layers of glass beads, modeling paste and fiber paste.
Once that was dried I painted it in a variety of purples, magentas and greens with a touch of blues.
Once dried I started on the color pours and collect the run off at the bottom for a string layer on top. From here I’m planning on potentially adding some white paint sprays and black lava then transforming the finish into a matte layer.
Here are some of my in progress shots.

Well I should run, my baby turned 2 yesterday so today is her family party ❤
Have a great weekend!
Cheers,
Amanda
