Staying with the "coastal " theme....but taking a break from the beachscapes, I decided to play with toys! Beach toys. I just finished this 6"x6" canvas of a pail & shovel. I enjoyed this one so much that I'm thinking of making a series small beach toy pieces.
I did this one slightly different than I usually do. I created the background by putting down all the different images, text, music, etc...then going over the entire thing with a pale blue wash to unify it.
From there I continued the usual process of the torn paper paintings.
I am a full time artist who loves to experiment and enjoy teaching what I've learned as well. I also LOVE to travel. I think my dream job would be to travel to places near & far just to do art!!!
I live with my husband in a lovely home on a pond in New England
