This is my latest piece. It is called “Boundaries.” It is a mixed media piece on an 8×10 canvas panel.
This piece symbolizes my struggle to create and maintain healthy boundaries in my life. From a distance, the lines look clean but if you look closer you can see how the lines are actually a huge mess. This is my most complex work to date. It will be listed for sale on Etsy for $65.00.
I would normally explain in detail how this painting was created, but this piece was more complicated. I will, however, tell you what products I used. This piece was created with liquid and medium bodied acrylics, crackle paint and glazes of acrylic matte medium tinted with liquid acrylics.
A lot of detail work went into this piece. Normally I will create a piece within three days. This one took me about a week from start to finish and is a more sentimental piece, which is why I have decided to charge a little more for this one.
I just ordered some more canvas panels in several different sizes. I’m excited to try some larger pieces! They should arrive in a few days.
I’m also continuing to work on Door County Freelist, which if you missed, is an online classifieds site for Door County. The site has been live for almost a month now. If you’re in the Door County area and need to buy sell or trade something, please check it out and post something! There are sections for community events, personals, jobs and apartments. There is also a local discussion forum and business directory (which I am adding to daily) It’s still rather naked, so please post or share.
That’s all for now. I hope you are enjoying my work. Thanks for reading!
