I mentioned before that I'm taking a very well timed class from Flora Bowley. Her artwork appeals to me because of the many complex layers she uses in her artwork. I like layers. I like peeling layers of old paint on antique furniture. I like decorating my house with layer upon layer of whimsical stuff. I like layering my clothing. I like layers.
And, given my tendency toward excess, rather than the recommended two canvases, I ended up with several. They were just waiting for action and calling out to me, so I decided to work on several canvases at once. It has been actually very helpful because I am not getting attached to any one of them. As Flora recommends, I'm just going with the flow. I do have to admit that I loved my second and third layers best. They looked like batik or encaustic works.
So, here are a few photos of my layers of paint. There are still two weeks of class left. I'm having such fun.....
