Man Cave

  It’s kinda funny sometimes, how pieces get their elements, often growing in tangent with another piece.   This one began while I was just playing around with metal embellishments — at the same time as for Gold Dusted.   I really liked this leaf shield (which I got on clearance at Michael’s) and wanted …

Gold Dusted

  This piece started out as some lovely ridged texture surrounding a constellation of metal embellishments that I had played around with until I found a combination that appealed to me.   The texture on top is glass bead gel and beneath is soft gel gloss, both by Golden.   Despite the name, it originally …

  Like the Glow Forest, this piece started life in my early morning waking-up dream mind.   I had been trying to figure out how to incorporate Pebeo Moon paints into my art, and in the morning I woke up dream-creating a fan-shape figure filled with Moon’s special effects. Later that day, I tried to …

Two Moon Cross

  I really enjoyed making this piece, and was able to “flow” and be pretty much non-judgemental the whole way through, just letting it be whatever it turned out to be. 😀   I started playing on the canvas with some clear acrylic mediums by Golden. The two round silver “moons” just seemed to fit …
