Blue Bliss

detail shot showing gold threads

This is a demo painting using the faux batik method.  I used rice paper that has gold threads (also comes in silver) running through it.  You can also see the fine lines created in the batik process.

Over the weekend, I taught a two day workshop for the Heritage Fine Arts Guild in Denver.  There were 21 student artists in the class, which is more than I prefer in my workshops because it's so hard
to give everyone the personal attention they need.

Here's a few of the mixed media abstracts they created after learning all about combusted foils, tyvek, Custom Patch stencils, foam plate abstracts, and lots of other techniques and materials.
