It is frigid outside in this northern hemisphere winter and I needed something to keep me warm. This painting reminds me of the winter I spent in Brazil. The underpainting was made with micaceous iron oxide mixed with polymer medium. While still wet I moved it around with an old credit card. When it was dry, I glazed over with azo yellow and pyrrole red. I scanned the coffee beans and printed onto gampi tissue and applied with a polymer medium. Coffee that heats you up. Enjoy.
We are two Santa Fe artists that were searching for a book just on image transfers and couldn't find one — so we wrote our own book. This experience led to our other books — Surface Treatment Workshop and Mixed Media Revolution. We have just put in a proposal for book four that we will tell you about soon. This has been a long but wonderful journey of learning and we had lots of fun and hope you do too.
