About Me

My photo
I live in Mooringsport La. and work in construction full time and dabble in art when ever I can. I would love to be able to do my art full time--who knows, maybe one day I will. In the past year, I started doing Festivals, trying to sell my Art. It is ALOT of work, but worth it. I have met so many people with the same interests as myself.

Productive Weekend

I actually had a very productive weekend.  It was really nice.  The weather was beautiful and I got a chance to spend the  whole day sunday in my studio.  I wanted to try my hand at abstract art.  The piece above is one that I just about finished this weekend. It has a textured background. I put glue, sheetrock mud and loads of texture in the mud.  I then gessoed and painted the canvas.
 The painting above is one of a Tryptch.  It is an abstract for my son.  He wanted something that wasn't really feminine to hang in his apartment.  I made this piece with glue, sheetrock mud, eggshells, sand and sawdust.  I call the three piece set "Space Odyssey.
 A few close-ups.

This is the second piece of the set.  It is to be hing in the center of the set.  It is textured with Sheetrock mud, glue, string, eggshells, sand and sawdust. 

  This is the last piece of the Set.  It is textured in the same way as the previous two pieces.
