Mixed media minis


I started a new series this week I’m calling my mixed media minis.

I wanted to create something with big color and texture to fit a small space and I came up with these little beauties.

These are great to add to a shelf ledge or to your office desk to add a pop of color.

Take a look at the progress so far. Most of them are still wet when I photographed them but I couldn’t wait haha still more layers to go but which is your favorite so far?

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
