I got highly creative with high relief texture: anaglypta wallpaper, door screening, fabric, thread, beads, metal embellishments [including real spoons] and chess pieces! Once the elements were safely embedded in Extra Heavy Gel Medium I painted everything white. Then came the aging with four different paints. I will go into details with pictures and information in another post.
All of these paintings are available now. If you want one, all you have to do is let me know in a comment on this blog post or FB message me. You can see all of the paintings in their Facebook Album. The sizes and prices are all there and you can see them in more detail.
Oh, Ophelia. You were the start of this whole series. I created Ophelia last week and posted a picture of her on my Facebook Page, whereupon she was snapped up almost immediately! So she will not be making her debut at The Fantasy in the Forest Art Show after all. Instead, Ophelia will be going to live with a lovely, creative person who is intensely involved in the arts. I know they will appreciate each other ;)
So Alice, the Mad Hatter, Hamlet, Titania and I [along with the others] are headed to the most magical show of the year, The Fantasy in the Forest Art Show. On July 20th and 21st, a *new* fantasy woodland setting will be inhabited by the booths of talented artists & craftspeople. You will find all manner of beautiful wares to buy: paintings, assemblage, glass, beads, teddy bears, photography, sculpture, steam punk art, jewellery, letterpress books & prints, cast stone garden pieces, the list goes on...
Find out all about this amazing show here. There's even a harpist... could it be more magical? I hope to see you there :)
