PROCESS

“Mindful Journey” was created on sturdy, smooth clayboard. To add texture, I used acrylic medium (acting as a glue) to attach canvas and other material, screen, and pieces of net of different sizes. The smooth and rough textures enhanced the painting surface and added visual interest and form. Then I painted. The acrylic paint was both thick (mixed with acrylic medium) and thin (mixed with water). Colors were painted and painted over; scraped, hidden or revealed. I used the sides to extend the painting (so, I did not frame – I left the edges exposed). I painted integrating all of the materials – making it one painting – one vision. I looked for images in the paint – the same way I look for images in clouds or other patterns. While I was painting, as I reflected on the passing and spirit of my Mom, I was inspired by music (notably “City of Angels”, “Love and Rockets Express”, “Brainwave Suite” and “Awakening Spirit”).”
