I just finished this itsy-bitsy piece the other day. It is for a project directed by Saije Bashaw, at The Creative Gym 5. The idea is to create an art work inspired by a word or words, and taking between 1-8 hours to complete the project. Very simple, very fun. The words this time around were “hidden” and “change”. This little piece took me a few hours, and got me to do some visual problem solving, and felt refreshingly different from other recent work I’ve made. The deadline isn’t for a while, so I haven’t seen other’s work yet, but I’m looking forward to it.
I’ve also been working on more “White Series” paintings…
One….. Dot….. At….. A….. Time.
This piece grabs me…i especially love the roots. So fun to read about your process…when is our next art night out?
Good question! I would love to go to an opening soon. I’ll see if there is anything coming up that looks interesting.
I love the White Series, Lisa
really love the texture of each little dot
How do you get those little dots?
The white dots are created with a tiny brush, encaustic paint, and patience. The black dots are created with an awl or other pointy object, and filled with oil paint or encaustic paint. It takes a long time, but I think it is worth it for the openness that it provides.
