PRINTS ARE AVAILABLE!*
Using acrylic mediums is a dangerous path to tread, and it starts seductively. One day you're eyeing the gel medium and thinking "Well...that might be kinda neat...just for some texture brush strokes, nothing crazy..." and the next day you've got an armload of wild stuff with mica beads and lava rocks and ceramic stucco and you've sacrificed your comb to use as a rake to make textures, because hair comes and goes, but art is forever!
I blame Liquitex. Liquitex is a pusher.
The reason this is particularly dangerous is because most of my work goes up on-line, and you lose vast amounts of the texture when you scan. You cannot tilt your head and see the way that the light reflects off the almost wood-pulp texture along the top and sides (Liquitex "Blended Fibers" medium) or see how the top of her jacket and shoulder is actually three dimensional and comes off the board an eighth of an inch or so (Golden Heavy Gel Matte.) But que sera, sera...such is life.
Anyway, I just wanted to fool with these mediums a bit, and so I did a small portrait of a pale rabbit woman, loosely inspired by Terri Windling's sketches of rabbit girls.
12 x 16, mixed media on clayboard, originals is for sale (and cooler in person!) and prints are available for $10 and $20--send a note or visit [link]
*Sorry for the blatant plug, but people keep not reading all the way to the end and then asking, forcing me to desperate measures. What egg?
