I started this canvas with a canvas collage. I glued horizontal strips of the canvas to look like waves and bunched up strings from the canvas to look like the grasses the waves wash up on the beach. I fractured the composition using the lines from the palm leaves and the trees. I took alot of liberty with the colors - but that's what I love most about this style!
This painting measures 20 x 16" and is painted with acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas.

This painting was also completed last year. I did the preliminary a few times using other colors, like greens for spring and summer. But I liked the ochres and purples with the red foliage best. I collaged tissue paper under the tree trunks for texture.

This painting was completed last year in a class I took with Ophelia Chambliss.
The paper copy shows how I worked out the composition and color. I was going to add a shadow of a Kopeki figure, but it seemed to be too much. So I settled for dancing lizards - I carved the rubber stamp myself!
