Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie
Which we ascribe to heaven.
~William Shakespeare, All's Well That Ends Well
This painting is my entry into the Mixed Media Monday weekly challenge. The theme this week is "altered people." I have used full body acrylics, fluid acrylics, paint marker, and molding paste this week.
I am currently taking Alisa Burke's "Graffiti Chic" online painting class. This is style is a real departure from my tight, geometric style and is taking me into a new territory. This style is so different for me I find myself with much less confidence, although the entire point is to be free, loose, and accept mistakes. You'd be surprised how difficult it can be to let go of the inner art critic!
I encourage everyone to check out Alisa's site. She is amazing. A formally trained artist and daughter of two potters, Alisa has lived the art life working in galleries. She stunned everyone when she began cutting up her own paintings to make handbags and other accessories (available on Etsy.)
