Ive started something new. 
Abstract textiles. 

I went into a painting funk and lost interest for a while. Several years actually.

I put down my paintbrush and went into hiding. One day, I met a lady online, who lives in Colorado and she was teaching abstract textiles. Whoa, I fell in love.

I fell in love with what she constructed and suddenly found new inspiration. 
It took a while and about 300.00 to find the special papers, glitter and golds to construct these special acrylic abstract textiles. Shes a natural, and I could not have found a better teacher. I bought one of her instructional videos online, and have been in art heaven for months now.

***

Let me share with you what Ive learned. 
I use special papers like rice paper and something magic called Tyvek. 
Tyvek puckers when you place a hot iron on it, like the turquoise colors in this piece below. I make the leaves or embellishments from 'plaster of paris' or modeling clay and paint them to match. I use black river rocks, loose weaved burlap, and special papers on heavily textured canvas. The end results is below.
  "Secret Treasures"

10 X 10
"Secret Treasures"
250.00
Available for purchase.

...and more to come.

of abstract textiles.

My new love is making abstract textile mixed media art.

This abstract textile is made with something magic called Tyvek.  Its used in new construction as a material thats fire proof. Tyvek puckers when you place a hot iron on it, like the gold piece at the bottom of this piece below. 

I make the  embellishments from 'plaster of paris' or modeling clay and paint them to match.  I use black river rocks, loose weaved burlap, and special papers on heavily textured canvas. I use acrylic mediums to paint in the 3D effects and use many layers of acrylic pouring mediums, top coated with hard polyurethane.
The end results is below.
"5423"


"5423"
8 x 8 canvas canvas, ready to hang. 
Frame not needed.
190.00

"The background
 is a little more goldish than showing in the photo.
I'll see if I can get a better photo and post it."

"Thank you for being interested."

And dont forget that shipping cost.

"Redd Lust"
24 x 36
1,728.00

950.00
available for purchase at this very low price
 for a limited time only


This painting was very lucky for me. I follow Feng Shui.
Feng Shui says if you will put a piece of art of lovers, you will actually find your forever mate. The very day I finished this piece and placed it on my bedroom wall, I met my now husband. It really works. I have my good luck, now its time to pass this on to others that would like to have a little good luck in their life.
