I needed a new desk, so in January I went to Target and picked out something that better suited my needs. I wanted to freshen it up and get creative with the top of the desk.
I painted the body of the desk white, and decided to do a flow painting over the top using acrylic and oil paint, followed by clear resin.
I'm extremely pleased with the results. It’s just the right vibe I wanted for this desk/space: something light, gentle, and inspiring.
In the past month or so, Willamina T. Mosenfelder and I have started collaborating on some pieces. For our first collaborative piece, we used a 16" x 20" pre-stretched canvas (stapled on back) and acrylic paints, finishing with a high gloss varnish. We each take our turns with the art piece, deciding on our own what to add, what the next step will be. We communicate very little about the piece to each other as to allow our own intuitions guide us on what we would like to do. We went back and forth working on the piece for a few weeks. Then, gave ourselves a deadline. And here we are! This painting is signed by both of us on the back of the work.
"Connected" (2017) can be seen below:
We're very excited about how this piece came out!
