Mixed Media Waterscape






Well..
Gentle readers..
This painting took almost 2 years..



Mixed Media Painting, Caterina Giglio, detail





Since I tucked it away and worked on it as I had time..




I wanted to share it with you..

Pool Side, Mixed Media Painting, Caterina Giglio.. detail 





And give you an idea of where it went to live






It is 3’ x 4’ 
so it is a good sized canvas

I have always said that if you think you can paint, 
try
painting waterscapes and skyscapes
They are the original abstracts..

I took this on as a challenge..
The size, the commitment..
the opportunity to learn..

and so I feel a large sense of accomplishment..

in the completion..








I love the look of it on the mocha wall..




Poolside from across the room..


And I finished the sides and wrapped it in the flow..








Once and a while you just have to create for yourself ..
I finished this during the holiday break..

I am almost 
finished 
with my excavations on paper ..

and will be working 
On my video for my class..
And a new YT video
Mono printing 
On fabrics..
just imagine the mad artist at play!

Lots to do..

Next Tuesday 
I will have January pages
Which will be a new self portrait..

See you then
Dearhearts...

Randi, I used a combo of glaze and retarders and one was gloss, I am sure that was the wetness.. xo
