TITLE: Rock My Soul
MATERIALS: Acrylic, plaster of paris and resin on canvas
SIZE: 30cm x 20cm x 3.5cm
FOR SALE: contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
Classic colours of red, black and gold. The piece down the centre is made of plaster of paris and has a fabulous texture with lots of twists and turns. The whole piece is then covered in resin giving it an amazing glassy appearance.
This was inspired by "Rock My Soul in the Bosom of Abraham" - more specifically the words - "so high you can't get over it, so low you can't get under it, so wide you can't get round it, oh rock my soul" This was a song that my father used to play on records (yes those old things! lol) when we were VERY young ;) My sister and I just LOVED it!! Again and again and again - as you do when you're kids! hehehehe
TITLE: Drawing the Line
MATERIALS: Acrylic and modelling paste on canvas
SIZE: 20cm x 20cm x 3.5cm
This piece is heavily textured with modelling paste and has many layers of colours.
The phrase "draw a line in the sand and move forward" inspired this piece. Sometimes it's not that easy to just draw one "line". Sometimes you have to be pateint and repeat the act several times before you can truly move forward.
Another one of my emotional pieces with the texture symbolising lifes ups and downs and the colours the ranges of emotions.

My first project for the last month was to complete my "patch" for our family "patchwork painting that we are doing. This is my sons "project" so hes chosen the colours - the designs - how many patches are going to be given out and to who.
The other thing I did was play around with colour combinations for my dot series. Some were just not suitable for public viewing! lol
The other two pieces I completed were older ones I reworked.
Here's one of them -
