Today’s artwork is another set that was created during my residency at the Tin Shop in Breckenridge, Colorado. These pieces began with a thin layer of mortar on each of the three 10×10 wood panels.
Each of the pieces was textured in a different design and, after they dried for a day or so, color was adding in multiple layers of thinned acrylic, the first layer being blue. The following layers included shades of yellow, brown & rust.
The colors became deeper & more intense as the layers of paint were added to each piece.
It reminded me of how our lives seem to be fuller & richer as we add on years of experiences!
And even if some of the layers themselves aren’t always interesting or beautiful, perhaps they can be when blended together over time!
I like the thought of being a work-in-progress, knowing that each experience I have will add another layer to who I am!
