Invitational Exhibition V

The Project Advances

A picture is worth 1000 words.  You've heard that before, and it certainly is a true statement.  So here are several photos showing more progress on my piece for Women In Art:  Tell Me A Story, the invitational exhibition at La Quinta Museum which will open in January.

Adding the butterfly cut outs.  Painting in the lizard shapes.

Introducing white  pigment along the butterfly wings and along the side of the lizard shapes.

Using paper cut outs to work towards additional design elements.  Also working out the final placement of the Book of Faces.

Book of Faces has been attached.

Now that the Book of Faces has been attached to the canvas there are additional design elements to be added as well as some small correctional details.  The project advances towards completion.

Invitational Exhibition IV

Working the Canvas

If you read the last post, you know my Book of Faces for this invitational exhibition at the La Quinta Museum, Women In Art:  Tell Me A Story, was completed and the work on the canvas which would support the book began.

The 18 x 24" gallery wrap canvas was painted with hues used in the faces and a composition similar to other paintings in this series, Native American Basket Weavers. Shapes inspired by actual designs used on baskets created by these women were added.

Cutting out stylized butterflies to paint and adhere to the canvas.

Because this has become a mixed media piece, snake skin was added as a representation of basket design work.  The creation of the canvas design is still on going.  Come back to watch it all come together.
