The group show Mixing Media opened on Friday and seemed to be well received, It had been a hard work getting some new work together when I have been so tired and having the Christmas holidays just before the show made it harder to focus on getting the work done. But I have new work and the other six pieces that I did earlier.
Here are the other two new pieces that I haven’t posted on the blog.
This piece has also been a background for a winter vegetable, but I have just realised that I haven’t shown it to you before. Sorry for keeping secrets, so here is the journal page along.
This was the only large work that has threads and beads on it and only very subtly, I like the little hint of sparkle and definition that they give. The others had enough going on without any extra.
The last big piece also started in my journal as is one of two, I haven’t finished the other one yet so that one is yet to come. I like the retro feel to these two and they have a more masculine palette. I have had enough pink from all the flowers I draw, so nice to get into other colour ways for a change.
It has really had the 3D treatment as you can see in the detail, the blue triangles are raised up with little foam sticky things (very technical) to give it some extra lift so to say. It was funny at the exhibition, because it took people a moment to realise that the pieces were raised and they were going up for a closer second look. I hope that is a good thing!
