Mixed media experiment

Sometimes I post pieces (like my fish) that will never be exhibited but are important because they are experimental, a way of forming up an idea that I may later use.

Mushroom with netting

This was an exercise in glazing that I lost interest in so I decided use it to experiment with plastic netting. (I’d been collecting the plastic netting bags that contain onions and fruit without having any clear idea of what I would do with them.)

This afternoon I just happened to have some leftover blue glazing paint that needed to be used up. Looking around for something to paint rather than washing it down the sink, I once again pulled out this board and whacked a glaze over the Raw Umber background.

It bought the piece up quite unexpectedly Рa happy chance. Light and paint dance on the netting Рthe very quality that prompted me to start a  plastic stash.

An outsider contemporary artist, I revel in exploring ideas through visual mediums and pushing the boundaries of my creative practice. In life, I strive for balance, by caring for the earth, practicing Tai Chi and learning about the world through travel.
