Original Mixed Media Artwork - 11" x 14" Matted Pieces
These pieces of original mixed media artwork each feature layers of collage, paint, and hand-drawn elements, including a portrait of a young Buddhist monk, watercolored leaves, and a butterfly printed from a hand-drawn and carved rubber block. Each comes matted and is ready to frame.
"Fly" features multiple layers of paint and collage on cotton rag paper. I've also worked in collaged images from my hand-carved plum blossom and butterfly stamps. There are also stenciled images, layers of texture, and the heat-embossed title at the bottom with gold asemic writing creating a cruciform across the middle.
"Nature Person" was created on a watercolor paper substrate and features stenciling, ink, vintage papers and handmade collage papers as well as hand-drawn, stenciled, and watercolored leaves. The floral image on the bottom is a homemade rubon of one of my original watercolor drawings. There are also bits of ribbon and clay disc beads as well as a replica Chinese coin.
"Sleepy Young Monk in Myanmar" is a mixed media portrait on Indian cotton rag paper with layers of collage in the background including a vintage topography map, a hand printed woodblock image on mulberry paper, and screen-printed Japanese paper. The portrait was hand-drawn and painted with acrylics over top of the background with stenciled and then painted accents on top.
